Rohit Sharma is now a proud father of a baby girl and has flown from Australia to Mumbai to attend to his wife Ritika Sajdeh and the child. As a result of this development, Rohit Sharma will miss the upcoming Sydney Test versus Australia, starting on January 3.
According to a Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) statement, the Indian batsman will join the squad on January 8, when the team begins its preparation for the One-day International (ODI) series starting on January 12.
The two other ODIs will be played on January 15 and 18. Sharma, who was recently included in the Indian Test set-up, has enjoyed average outings in Adelaide and Melbourne, after missing out on the second Test in Perth due to injury. Rohit and Ritika had got married in December 2015.
