Indian batsman Rohit Sharma, who missed the Test series against England due to injury, has undergone a successful surgery of his right thigh in London and is recovering well, the BCCI said on Saturday.
“The medical team of the BCCI confirms that India batsman Rohit Sharma underwent a surgery on his right thigh on Friday, November 11, 2016 in London. The procedure was successful and Rohit will be discharged from the hospital in the next 24 hours,” the Board said in a statement.
“BCCI medical team is constantly monitoring his treatment and will oversee his recovery, towards becoming match fit,” it said.
The right-handed batsman too took to Twitter to inform that the surgery had gone well. He tweeted, “All went well. Thank you for your good wishes. Can’t wait to be back at it.”

Rohit sustained the thigh injury in the fifth ODI against New Zealand in Visakhapatnam on October 29.
The stylish batsman is likely to be out of action for 10-12 weeks, which means he will not be able to make a comeback even for the series against Australia which begins on February 23.
