New Delhi: Team India’s legendary opener Rohit Sharma is currently the best opening batsman in the world. There is no doubt that Rohit alone can change the face of the entire match on his own. But now slowly the age of Rohit is increasing and he can say goodbye to cricket in the coming few years. In such a situation, the biggest question will be that who will be the player in place of Rohit who will be able to handle the opening in the team. Although the answer to this question has also been received from IPL.
This batsman will handle the responsibility of opening
Let us tell you that Rohit Sharma is currently 34 years old and after this age, most players say goodbye to international cricket in a few years, in such a situation, Team India will need a new opening batsman in place of Rohit. Young batsman Rituraj Gaikwad can handle this responsibility. The whole world has heard the echo of the sensation that Gaikwad’s bat has spread. This batsman of just 24 years is the future of Team India. His batting in the recent IPL has won everyone’s heart.
Made his debut against Sri Lanka
Rituraj Gaikwad made his T20 International debut on the Sri Lanka tour this year. During this, he got an opportunity to play 2 T20 matches in which he could score only 35 runs. But nowadays his bat is on fire in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. The form that this player had in IPL 2021, the same form can now be seen in domestic cricket as well. After the arrival of Rituraj, the tension will end that from where an opener like Rohit Sharma will come.
