Suryakumar took to social media on Thursday to share a picture with Rohit at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. "Hey b-Ro," wrote Suryakumar in the caption accompanying the photo.

Team India chief selector Chetan Sharma had said during the announcement of the squad for India's three ODIs in South Africa, that the management didn't want to rush Rohit back into the team.
"Rohit Sharma is not fit, he is in rehab and he is not going for the ODI series in South Africa. He is working on and building on his fitness. We never wanted to take chance with him," Sharma said before announcing the team.
"We are looking to groom KL Rahul and we have confidence in him. He has proved his leadership qualities. KL is the best one who can handle the side. He is an all-format player and he has got good experience of captaincy... this is what all selectors think," he added.
The three-match ODI series will begin at Paarl on January 19. The second match will also be played at Paarl on January 21 while the third one will be at Cape Town on January 23.
