India cricketer Rohit Sharma, who is currently staying in Mumbai, is eager to return to training grounds to meet with his teammates. In an interview to football presenter Joe Morrison on La Liga facebook page, Rohit said that he feels he might have to wait a little longer than his other teammates to return to training, with Mumbai still one of the most affected cities in the country.

“Who are you looking forward to meeting first when you go back? Who is the joker in the team?” Morrison asked. In response, Rohit said: “There are quite a few jokers in the squad. In India, it is going to be different as certain parts of the country have been affected the most and certain parts which have not been affected a lot.”

He further added: “So I am assuming that those places might open up lot earlier than Mumbai, the city where I stay and which is the most infected. I feel the other guys will send me videos of catching up with each other a lot earlier than I do.”

So far, the Indian cricketers have not yet returned to training. Fast bowler Shardul Thakur on Saturday became the first India cricketer to resume outdoor training after a two-month coronavirus-forced break.
