Rohit Sharma’s bruised biceps is expected to heal before the big game against Pakistan on Sunday but the “semi-dangerous” track with “huge open cracks” at the Nassau County will be a worry for all stakeholders, ahead of the marquee clash to promote the shortest version in the mainland United States.


With a host of experts including former England skipper Michael Vaughan being scathing in their assessments, questions are being raised as to why a few practice games weren’t played before the big event to allow the pitch to settle down.

The Indian skipper was hit flush on right bicep by a delivery from Ireland bowler Josh Little here on Wednesday, which suddenly took off from length.

Rohit had to retire hurt after scoring a 50 and at halfway stage in second innings.
