India captain retired hurt while batting against West Indies in the third T20I on Tuesday.

The skipper appeared to have pulled a muscle near his waist as he left the field holding his back.

BCCI then confirmed through its official Twitter handle that Sharma had a back spasm and the medical team is monitoring the situation.

After the match ended with India winning by 7 wickets, Rohit talked about the injury in the post-match interview, “It’s okay at the moment. We’ve got a few days till the next game, hopefully it should be okay.”

Rohit started like a house on fire when he hit Alzarri Joseph for a four and a six but while trying to take a single, looked to have hurt himself.

It couldn’t be ascertained whether it is more than a muscle pull or if he would be medically for the next two games scheduled in Florida on August 6 and 7.

In the match, India beat West Indies to take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series. India chased down the target of 165 with six balls to spare with Suryakumar Yadav top-scoring with a 44-ball 76. Rishabh Pant remained not out on 33 off 26 balls.
