The Indan vice captain Rohit Sharma has been a revelation in the ODI cricket ever since his promotion as an opener in 2013. At the moment, Rohit Sharma is the only player who can challenge the Indian captain Virat Kohli for the #1 spot.
In his latest interview, the Indian batting coach Vikram Rathour said that Rohit Sharma is the best batsman in the white ball cricket on his day. He also believes that Rohit Sharma can be a successful player in the test match format as well.
On his day, I think he is the best batsman in the world, especially in white-ball cricket. He has got great game-plans in white-ball cricket and that is being converted to Test cricket as well. Unfortunately, in New Zealand, he got injured and couldn’t play the Test series but the kind of batting he did against South Africa in the last Test series we played in India, I think he was a revelation.
Rohit Sharna is one player who makes the cricket look easy on the eye. He plays effortless shots that can make any batsman in the world to go in awe. There is no doubt that Rohit Sharma is the best white ball opener in the world by a far margin at the moment.
Here’s what Vikram Rathour had to say about Rohit Sharma’s effortless batting and the way he plays his shots without taking too much risks.
His strength is that he can take bowlers apart without taking any risk. He keeps on playing the cricketing shots, keeps backing his ability to hit straight. Without playing too many risky shots, he can still play at a phenomenal strike rate. So, that I think is his strength and on his day he can be the best player in the world.
