Rohit Sharma looks all set to miss the limited overs part of India's series against the West Indies starting this month after failing to recover from his shoulder injury.
The stylish right-handed batsman from Mumbai had suffered a fractured finger during the second ODI in England and subsequently missed the rest of the series. He was also ruled out of the Champions League Twenty20 as Mumbai Indians went into the tournament with a stand-in skipper.
The multiple injuries meant India have had to promote Ajinkya Rahane to partner Shikhar Dhawan at the top. Media reports suggested that the combination could be persisted with against the West Indies with Murali Vijay as the backup opener. (Chris Gayle to Miss ODI Series in India)
