Reetinder Sodhi has said that it is a tough call to choose between Babar Azam and Rohit Sharma as the fifth player who could be added to the existing Fab 4.
Virat Kohli, Joe Root, Kane Williamson and Steve Smith are termed as the current Fab 4. Rohit and Babar have been consistent across formats and deserve to be added to the elite list.
During a discussion on India News, Sodhi was asked to pick between Sharma and Azam if the Fab Four list needs to have another member.
“I would go with Rohit Sharma as he is more impactful. He is an ultimate match-winner. Babar Azam is also very close.”
The former player also considered Rohit’s captaincy skills while revealing his choice.
“If given an option, I would give my vote to Rohit Sharma. The way he has captained and the team has performed, I think he is a complete player and he should be there.”
Rohit has scored 1552 runs at an average of 55.42 in 18 Tests since he started opening for Team India in 2019.
