Will Rohit fit into the Test side easily? (1:43)

Making a return to cricket after a long injury lay-off, Rohit Sharma might find it difficult to get back in the Test side, but will have little trouble in reclaiming his ODI spot (1:43)

Rohit Sharma, who was out of action since November 2016 after suffering a thigh injury, is set to make a return to cricket. The 29-year old opener tweeted that he was available for Mumbai's 50-over matches in the Vijay Hazare Trophy on March 4 and 6.

Rohit, who last played for India in October 2016, missed the Test and ODI series against England, the one-off Test against Bangladesh and was unavailable for the first two Tests against Australia due to the injury that forced him to travel to London for his treatment.

Rohit hurt himself while batting against New Zealand in Visakhapatnam, where he injured his quadriceps while diving into the crease. Battling a poor run of form, he struck 70 off 65 deliveries which proved a match-winning performance.

Mumbai, who are currently second in Group C of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, play Bengal (March 3), Andhra (March 4) and Goa (March 6) in Chennai for the last of their group fixtures.
