India are blessed to have 2 of the greatest players in the history of not only Indian cricket but also in world cricket to be playing at the same era. The opposition teams have to deal with 2 monumental figures when they face India in the form of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
India will be playing Australia in Australia for an extensive tour that includes all the formats of the game. Australia are lucky that they won’t be facing both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in all the 3 formats of the game at the same time except for the 1st test as Rohit Sharma is sidelined due to injury for limited overs and Virat Kohli opted out of last 3 tests as he is expecting the birth of his first child.
The former world cup winning player from Pakistan Ramiz Raja in his latest interview to Cricket Baaz said that Rohit sharma is a match-winner and India will miss the presence of Rohit Sharma in the limited overs series
Rohit is a match-winner and teams are scared of him. When teams huddle together before a batsman arrives at the crease like Sharma does it says a lot. Rohit’s absence is a big loss to India,” Ramiz Raja said
He further said the nature of the wickets in Australia have changed a lot when compared to previous eras and this point was reiterated by the Australian legend Glenn McGrath as well.
“The pitches in Australia are no longer what they used to be some years back. I mean, there is less bounce, sideways movement, and they are less venomous,” Ramiz Raja told
Indian trio of Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah have turned into one of the most fearsome trio in the test cricket in the last 2 years or so. Any team in the world would be aware of it and Ramiz Raja believes the same.
“I think India has the batting line-up to tame Australia and pus the Indian bowling has improved a lot and they have a very good attack now and Australia will have this in mind,” Ramiz Raja concluded
