Rohit Sharma’s Cricket Academy Crickingdom is well-known in India. It has several branches in more than fifteen cities and is one of India’s premier institutes for Cricket Coaching. In the recent update, it has been confirmed that Rohit Sharma is looking forward to launching a branch of the academy in California, USA. In fact, Crickingdom is already operational in Singapore and Japan. There are plans for expansion in Bangladesh. However, their website already has the academy in the USA listed and it is expected to start operations soon. A photograph from the pre-launch celebrations was posted by one of Rohit’s business associates named Chetan Suryawanshi.

Rohit Sharma was stationed in the West Indies for the multi-format tour of the West Indies. Team India won the two-match Test series by 1-0 under his captaincy. Moreover, he scored a brilliant century in the first game. Following the series victory, India went on to the three-game ODI series. They won the first game under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy but he batted lower down the order and completed the remainder of the job for India.

Rohit Sharma did not feature in the second and third ODIs vs West Indies

He was dropped for the next two ODIs as Hardik Pandya assumed the captaincy. The team won the series 2-1. But Rohit did not return to India straightaway as Virat Kohli did. Rather, he stayed back for the plans of Crickingdom’s California branch’s launch. The USA is very close to the Islands of the West Indies hence, it made logistical sense.

Speaking of Team India’s current commitments. They are involved in a five-match T20I series against the West Indies which is the final event of their multi-format tour. Both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been left out of the squad. They started the series on a losing note and will be looking to bounce back in the four remaining games. Notably, a few of the T20Is are also scheduled to happen in Florida stretching team India’s tour to the USA.
