Rohit Sharma has been very active on social media during the pandemic-induced downtime. On one day he is seen bantering with Yuzvendra Chahal over the latter's engagement while on another day he is seen professing his love for wife Ritika Sajdeh. However, now it's time to get back to the rigours of touring and cricket as the IPL is around the corner and teams have begun quarantining players in order to ready them for departure to the UAE. Rohit has hit the gym again as he revealed in a social media post. In a picture posted on Instagram, Rohit can be seen sweating it out in the gym - what he termed as "Going low only to push yourself higher."
Rohit leads the Mumbai Indians and will look to take his team to yet another IPL title as he successfully did in 2019. Mumbai are the only team to win the IPL four times.
Things will be different this time, though, as the team will be away from the comforts of their home ground. The IPL has been moved from India to the UAE due to the impact of COVID-19 in India – the country with the third-highest number of coronavirus cases in the world.
The tournament is set to begin on September 19 and will run until November 10. The matches will be played in three cities in the Emirates - Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.
The teams will have to go through at least five rounds of testing before they could train in the UAE as mandated in the standard operating procedures (SOPs) shared by the BCCI with the franchises.
