Rohit Sharma, commonly referred to as the ‘hitman’ of the Indian Cricket team is playing the test series against England in England. Though he’s been a very consistent performer in the limited-overs format, having tons of records under his belt in both home and away grounds, he’s not having a great time in away ground in the test format.
We all saw Rohit’s master class in the last ODI World Cup in England, where he scored 5 centuries to become the record holder of most centuries in a single World Cup. He also has a significant start to his revived test career, where he scored a couple of centuries and a double hundred. The mighty hitter hasn’t spared any bowler and has been a cause of worry to every opponent bowler while taking them on.
It’s not just in Indian colours where he’s performed, he’s been a consistent performer in the Mumbai Indians team too. He’s been their star performer so far and is also regarded as the best IPL captain. He took over the captaincy from Ricky During the 2013 series, when Mumbai was in a crisis, but led the team to its maiden title in the same series. He now has 5 IPL crowns under his belt with Mumbai Indians.
It’s not the same rose patch all over his career, Rohit Sharma is struggling to convert his best starts in test matches. We can’t say that he’s inconsistent, coz he stands guard and plays off the first session with his partner and also plays the new ball old. But he’s struggling to cross the 30-40 run mark even after playing 100+ balls. However, we can’t write him off for sure, let’s hope that Rohit Sharma has a fruitful series with team India.
