MUMBAI: Mumbai Indians stand-in skipper Kieron Pollard said that India vice-captain Rohit Sharma should be back in the next game.
Rohit Sharma missed out the IPL match against Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday due to a leg injury during Tuesday's training session.
It was the first time that he had missed an IPL game in 11 seasons.
"Rohit is the captain of the team and it was only a precautionary measure for the team. He should be back in the next game," Pollard said.
"I would gladly give it back to him and field at the boundary and will think what to contribute to the team", he added.
Pollard smashed 83 off 31 balls that contained 10 sixes and three fours. He dismissed in the second ball of the last over.
