Hit For Six!
-

Rohit Sharma walked off retired hurt in the second over of the third T20I between India and West Indies in St Kitts.

Rohit Sharma walked off after a prolonged discussion with the team physio in the second over of the run chase in St Kitts in the third T20I. Chasing 165 for a win, Rohit had smashed Alzarri Joseph for a six and a four in the second over before he appeared to visibly struggle with his back.

The physio tended to the Indian skipper, but he eventually decided to walk off retired hurt. 

BCCI confirmed that Rohit had suffered a back spasm.

Shreyas Iyer walked out to replace Rohit Sharma in the middle. Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav put on an 86-run partnership in quick time to put India well on course to ace the target. 

Shreyas Iyer, who played the anchor role, was dismissed for 24 off 27 balls while Suryakumar went on to make a 44-ball 76 to ensure India were on their way to take a lead in the series.

THIS IS THE BIG TIME!
