Former captain of the Indian cricket team, Krishmachari Srikkanth said that the ability to play big centuries in ODIs makes Rohit Sharma the best batsman of this format. Rohit has managed to score more than 140 runs 11 times in 29 ODIs. Srikanth, himself an aggressive opener in his time, said that Rohit will be included in the top three or fifth position in the list of greatest openers.
Srikanth told Cricket Connected, “I would count him as the greatest opener of all time in world cricket. The greatest feature of Rohit Sharma is that he plays a big century easily or scores a double century, which is amazing.”
The 60-year-old Srikanth, who has played 43 Tests and 146 ODIs for India, said, “If you score 150, 180 or 200 runs in a one-day match, just imagine where you are taking the team. This is Rohit's greatness. “
Recently, Mumbai Indians coach Mahela Jayawardene expressed his reaction to Rohit. Jayawardene says that Rohit Sharma may seem a natural captain, but all his decisions are pre-decided with a lot of caution. The Jayawardene Rohit-led Mumbai Indians team is the most successful franchise in the Indian Premier League and has won the record four times for this breathtaking T20 tournament.
Jayawardene believes, “Rohit is definitely a natural leader and he has a lot of knowledge about the opponent which he uses during the match. He said, “So when you are prepared, it helps you to take natural decisions and you are able to make decisions on time.” You can expect the same from him and he is the best in it. “
30-year-old Rohit has scored 9115 at an average of 49.27 in 224 ODIs so far in his career. This includes 29 centuries and 43 half-centuries. His best score is 264 runs which is a world record. He has scored 2141 runs in 32 Tests. Currently he is spending family time with his wife and children in lockdown.
