Ahead of the IPL 2020, Team India opener Rohit Sharma said that the tournament will be challenging for him as it is the longest gap that he has ever had in his career without holding a bat.
“Unless I play, I will not know where I am and how I feel but the body is completely fine,” Rohit added.
Rohit, who hasn’t braced the field for six months now, admitted that it would be his primary concern when he returns back to the sport in IPL 2020.
The IPL 2020 will begin on September 19, while the final will take place on November 10, the IPL Governing Council confirmed after a meeting on Sunday.
It will be for the first time ever that a final of IPL will take place on a weekday.
Further, the usual 8 pm matches, will begin 30 minutes earlier at 7.30 pm.
