IND vs SL: We should be equally hard on Rohit Sharma: Gautam Gambhir

Ind vs SL: Gautam Gambhir Lashes Out at Rohit Sharma
Indian captain Rohit Sharma

IND vs SL: “I think we should talk to him in the same space like we used to when Virat didn’t get a 100 in last three and a half years. So we should be equally hard on Rohit Sharma because 50 innings in international cricket is quite a lot. It’s not you didn’t get a 100 in one or two series, and that is one thing that is missing in Rohit’s game from the last World Cup. He used to get those big 100s, this time he’s looking in good form, he’s hitting the ball well but he has to convert,” Gambhir said.

Further analyzing the performances of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, he added that Virat Kohli has got his rhythm back. In the last 4 one-day internationals, Virat Kohli has scored 3 great centuries. One of the main issues of the Indian team has been the lack of good gameplay at the top of the innings. Keeping in mind that the 2023 ODI World Cup could be the last one for both senior players, their contribution to the tournament will be a turning point for the team.

Rohit Sharma and his team will play ample ODIs before going into the World Cup. The blackcaps will be arriving in India after winning against Pakistan. It will be a fierce battle between the two sides. The first match is scheduled to be played on Wednesday, 18 January at Hyderabad. KL Rahul and Axar Patel will not be part of this series.
