Lad (Dinesh Lal) said in the book ‘The Hitman: The Rohit Sharma Story’ on the limited-overs vice-captain of the Indian team, “He had won matches on his own since school days and had leadership potential. He also used to take wickets and score a century. I made him captain of the school team in ninth grade itself.
He said, ‘He was very aggressive who always wanted to win and wanted to contribute to that victory. I always advised him to play calmly at the crease as he was a master of technique and it was impossible to get him out after he settled at the crease.
In this book written by famous cricket writers Vijay Lokapalli and G. Krishna, many untouched aspects of Rohit’s golden journey have been exposed. Along with this, his fellow players, coaches and friends have also expressed their opinions about him in a flawless manner. This book, published by Bloomsbury, will be released on 18 November.

He also said, ‘It is very important for a middle-order batsman to become one of the best openers in the world. Only Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag have done so before that.
Rohit’s teammate and close friend Mumbai batsman Abhishek Nair spoke about his mastery in the pool shot.
He said, ‘Tennis ball cricket is common on the grounds of Mumbai and in this you have to be the king of sixes. Rohit mastered the pool shot from the same period. No one can stop him from hooking or pooling a short ball. He used to hit big sixes over sweeper cover and cover point which is not easy. Batsmen often hit sixes at midwicket.
