New Delhi: Indian cricket team’s star opener Rohit Sharma has won Team India many times in big matches. Rohit is one of the best batsmen in the world. But for some time, his performance in Test cricket has not been very special, due to which many questions are raised on him.
VVS Laxman gave a big statement
Former Indian team batsman VVS Laxman has given a big statement on Rohit Sharma. Talking to ESPN Cricinfo, Laxman said that Rohit Sharma has not been as good in Test matches as he has been in white ball cricket. He said that Rohit’s performance with the white ball has been very good but he has not been that expressive with the red ball. Especially on foreign pitches.
All eyes on Rohit
Rohit Sharma is the best opening batsman in the world in limited overs cricket. But when it comes to Test cricket, Rohit’s performance disappoints a bit. Especially abroad, Rohit’s bat has failed to show anything amazing so far. Rohit has so far scored a total of 6 half-centuries on foreign soil and he has failed to score any century so far. In such a situation, against England, most of the eyes will be on him.
This was the first day’s game
On the first day, after winning the toss, the England team got off to a very poor start. The bowlers of the Indian team bowled tremendously and in the first innings of the match, England were all out for 183 runs in 64.4 overs. Jasprit Bumrah took 4 wickets for India. Shami took 3 wickets. Apart from this, Shardul Thakur took 2 and Mohammad Siraj took 1 wicket. By the end of the first day’s play, Team India has scored 21 runs in 13 overs without losing any wicket. KL Rahul (9) and Rohit Sharma (9) started batting on the second day of the game.
