Rohit Sharma played exceptionally well in the first Test, scoring a hundred. In the second Test, he played two quick innings, helping India to finish the matches within three days.
Mohammad Kaif on Indian skipper Rohit Sharma
India’s spin twins have been getting a lot of attention, but Rohit Sharma’s batting style has been overlooked. He used an aggressive approach to face the Australian bowlers, which worked in favor of India. Mohammed Kaif, a former Indian cricketer, believes that Rohit Sharma’s batting is worth learning from, especially for aspiring batters.
“I think it will be Rohit Sharma, he’s in very good form, scoring lots of runs, his contribution in the second test was very important, and he made a statement in terms of his batting, of how to play cricket on a turning track.”
Kaif said on Star Sports
“Even though there was a fielder at long-on, Rohit Sharma attacked the ball and beat the fielder. So, even if there is a fielder at long-on, he backs his ability to beat the fielder and hits a six. Rohit Sharma has done this and every aspiring batter should watch his footage to understand where to hit a ball. So, I’m pretty confident that Rohit Sharma will perform in both the final test matches,”
he further added.
Australia are currently 2-0 behind in the Test series. Kaif thinks it’s unlikely they’ll be able to turn things around in the remaining two matches.
“We have many bowlers like that who can change the game for us. We spoke about Ashwin, Jadeja is another player who can change the game for us. And we haven’t even come to Axar Patel and Siraj’s bowling. Siraj didn’t even bowl in the second innings. So we have many match winners like that. So, in my opinion, it will be very hard for Australia to make a comeback from here,”
