Rohit and Ishant were not going to Australia, misinformation spread: BCCI

 BCCI has clarified its position on the controversy over Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma's decision not to travel to Australia for the Test series. "Rohit and Ishant were not part of the team. An 18-man squad for four Tests has been announced," the board said. Now that Virat Kohli is back, we hope that Shreyas Iyer will stay in Australia for the Test series.

According to the Times of India, Rohit's fitness will be assessed on December 11. Only then will it be decided whether he is eligible to play a Test match.

A source close to the matter said, "The problem now is that 14 days of quarantine is required in Australia. If Rohit is allowed to go on the 12th, how will he go? There are no commercial flights. Even if he leaves, he will have to stay in quarantine alone for two weeks. It's a question of fitness when it will be available. '

If Rohit had wanted to play a Test match and was confident of being fit, he would have left for Australia on November 12 with the team.

"Rohit was scheduled to catch a flight with the rest of the team on November 12, but instead decided to go to the National Cricket Academy (NCA)," BCCI sources said.

Now, according to the BCCI's own rules, Rohit needs to be declared fit before playing a Test. "No one in the BCCI knows who told Rohit to go to the National Cricket Academy," the BCCI said. Now the decision is up to the NCAA. '

Some believe that Rohit would have gone to Australia with the rest of the team. If he had rehabilitated and got fit, he could have played in the second Test, as he would have completed the required quarantine time.

Sources close to the matter said, "Whatever the confusion is, it has damaged the team's preparations. Virat will have to come back, as his cause is personal and very necessary. Rohit had said the same on a previous tour of Australia. Unfortunately, the team suffered due to lack of communication.

According to BCCI sources, Rohit and Ishant were not going to Australia. "If someone is spreading falsehoods, it is not a good thing," the source said.

As far as Ishant is concerned, his decision was taken a month ago. "It will take Ishant about four weeks to get fit and then another four weeks to get match fitness," NCA director Rahul Dravid wrote to BCCI officials. That means he will be fully fit by December 17 (the start date of the first test).

BCCI sources said, "After that, he will have to stay in quarantine for 14 days. What then And being quarantined alone is a lot of hard work. Until he recovers, three Test matches will be over. Does the team really need it? '

According to our correspondent Times of India, BCCI officials had told Rohit that he was going to Australia after Virat Kohli's return, but Rohit was aware that he would need to take a break.

Sources close to the matter said, "It was not the decision of the BCCI. We don't know who is doing this. '
