Indian batsman Rohit Sharma undergoes a thigh injury in London and will be discharged in the next 24 hours, BCCI announced via tweet on Saturday.
Rohit had sustained the injury during the Vizag ODI against New Zealand on October 29 and this surgery assures that he is out of the game for next 10-12 weeks, which means he will not be able to make a comeback by the time the series against Australia begins on February 23.
Rohit Sharma took to Twitter to give fans an update about his injury and wrote:
All went well. Thank you for your good wishes. Can't wait to be back at it

Earlier, when asked about the nature of his injury, Rohit said, "Like you saw, while taking a run the muscle pulled up then I understood that I won't make it to the crease, so I dived, after that our physio told me that it was necessary to take a scan."
The Australia series is scheduled for February-March 2017 and they will play four Tests in Bangalore, Dharamsala, Ranchi and Pune.
