According to Cricbuzz, Rohit Sharma has recovered from the back issue and will be available for the last two T20I matches against the West Indies. However, there is still no clarity about Harshal Patel’s availability. The left-arm pacer was out of action due to a rib injury.

Meanwhile, the skipper can be rested for the final match if India wins the fourth match, keeping in mind the upcoming Asia Cup 2022, with Hardik Pandya performing the captaincy duties.

Rohit gave India a bit of a headache when he retired hurt due to a back issue during the third T20I against the West Indies, as the Asia Cup 2022 is also just around the corner, and if there was any major issue, then it would have been a big setback for the 'Men in Blue'.
