new Delhi: If Team India has achieved success in the last few years, the main reason for this has been Rohit Sharma. This ‘hitman’ has not been included in the series of limited overs in Australia due to injury. Team India lost by 66 runs in an attempt to chase 374 runs in the first ODI match played in Sydney. At the same time, India had a target of 390 runs in the second ODI, in this match, India lost by 51 runs.
Former India opener Aakash Chopra has reacted to the defeat in both these matches. He believes that Team India is missing Rohit Sharma a lot. If he were in the team, his attitude would have been aggressive while chasing such a big goal. Akash also believes that the Indian cricket team is not looking in its best form.

Aakash Chopra said on his YouTube channel, ‘The difficulty of batting Team India is that there are a lot of runs on the scoreboard. Rohit Sharma would have played more domineering. If Rohit is not there then it is a loss. If you want to reach above 350 then Rohit Sharma will be needed, especially when you are chasing runs.
Rohit Sharma is currently on rehab at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru and is recovering from his hamstring injury. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly is trying to reduce Rohit’s quarantine period after talking to Cricket Australia and he can be included in the Test series soon. A final assessment will be done on his fitness on December 11 and on this day a decision will also be taken as to whether he will visit Australia or not.
