Former Indian cricketer Reetinder Singh Sodhi has heaped praise on Rohit Sharma for the way he has batted in international cricket. He noted that Rohit’s form will play a crucial part in the upcoming Test series against England.
He also stated that Rohit is the best batsman in the world when he plays strokes. Rohit had a brilliant start to his Test career, scoring two back-to-back centuries against West Indies in 2013. However, he was dropped from the side after failing to get going.
The right-handed batsman was given another chance to cement his place in the Test squad in 2019. Rohit started with a bang while opening the innings and hasn’t looked back since then. During the ICC World Test Championship 2019-21, he played an important role in India’s journey to the finale.
He scored 34 and 30 in two innings against New Zealand, but the Indian team lost the championship match.
“A lot here depends on Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Cheteshwar Pujara – how these three batsmen catch form in the upcoming series. We all know that, in his elegance, Rohit Sharma is the best batsman in the world,” Sodhi said on India News.
Sodhi noted that Hitman is a special player when he opens the innings.
“He was definitely struggling in Test cricket if we talk about sometime back but now he has stamped his authority in Test cricket. He is a special player as an opener, when he plays he can take the match away from the opposition in a matter of moments,” he added.
