Rohit last played in whites in January earlier this year against South Africa. The right-hander scored just 78 runs in four innings at an average of 19.50.
Due to his dismal performances in the first two Tests of the three-match series against South Africa, Rohit was dropped from the third and final Test in Johannesburg.
The right-hander was also excluded from the squad for India's one-off Test against Afghanistan.
Rohit, who is the only player who has scored three hundreds in T20Is and three double-centuries in ODIs, made his Test debut in 2013. Since then, the 31-year-old has played just 25 Tests, scoring 1479 runs at an average of 39.97.
He has played 9 Tests at home and scored 769 runs at an astonishing average of 85.44, including three centuries and five half-centuries.
But, his away record is not that impressive.
Rohit has played 16 Tests overseas and scored 710 runs at an average of 25.35, including four half-centuries.
