Sharma missed the entire Indian Premier League this year after undergoing surgery on his right hand to remove a bone spur. The 27-year-old was expected to take part in the tournament last month before he was sidelined again. He returned for the final match of the league last month where Delhi Daredevils lost to Chennai Super Kings by four runs in a tense finale.

The NCA announced on May 21 that Sharma had been given the all clear to fly to Australia. "Rohit Sharma is now fit and will be traveling with the team to Australia," an NCA statement said. "He will join the team in Melbourne on May 30."

India face Australia in five T20s starting on June 1. The tournament will be played across three cities - Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne - and will be broadcast live on TV channels in both countries.

After playing Test cricket for almost two decades, India launched their T20 league in 2012. Since then, it has become one of the most popular sports in the country with fans eager to see who will be picked next year's squad.

Why is Rohit Sharma not in the IPL?

Rohit was omitted from the limited-overs team because to a hamstring injury sustained during the IPL 2020. Rohit is now receiving rehabilitation at the NCA in Bengaluru in order to be fully fit for the important Test series between India and Australia. The onus is now on Ambati Rayudu to fill in for Rohit.

Rohit has been one of Indian cricket's biggest stars for several years now, having made his debut in 2011. He quickly became a regular fixture in the One Day International (ODI) squad, scoring hundreds in consecutive matches against South Africa in 2014. However, it was in the Test format that he made his name, scoring thousands of runs across all three formats. His record-breaking season in 2019 - he was the only player to score centuries in all three formats - earned him a place on the World Test Championship winning Indian team. However, he did not play due to injury.

After playing ODI cricket since his debut, it took Rohit four years to score his first century in T20s. In fact, he still hasn't gone past 100 in any format other than the longest form of the game. With scores like these, it isn't surprising that he is being overlooked by the selectors. It will come as a relief to many Indians who think that he is too good to miss out on international games just because he is rehabbing a long-term injury.
