Chief coach Anil Kumble has laid down a “protocol” that a player recuperating from injury needs to play “domestic cricket” in order to be considered for a comeback in the national team.

With Rohit Sharma (quadriceps), KL Rahul (hamstring), Shikhar Dhawan (thumb fracture) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (back) in the injured list, Kumble feels that “communication with players is key” as one can understand their eagerness to comeback. “Communication is key in any team activity. Whether doing well or not, communication with injured players is equally important. Having played the game, I know exactly what goes through players’ mind while watching somebody else playing. While he expects the team and that player to do well, it is important to keep all of them in loop,” Kumble said. “It is unfortunate that KL Rahul, who batted brilliantly is missing out. So is Bhuvi, Shikhar. And it’s a big blow for Rohit. Specially feel sad for Rohit as he was doing well in Test format,” he added.
