Told MI that I can play

Want to be fit before the test series

Whether he will be able to go to Australia or not, I was not paying attention to all these things. ‘
Told MI not to play playoff if not fit
Rohit said, ‘After the ham-string injury, the next 10 days I just thought of healing it. He said that until you reach the ground, you do not know how the body is working.
