Whom will Rohit Sharma replace if returns to Test Cricket?
Birmingham: As Indian skipper Virat Kohli has already hinted of Rohit Sharma’s comeback in Tests, the question arises to whom the hitman will replace.
According to the top BCCI sources, it will not be surprising if Rohit Sharma makes a comeback into the Test side against Sri Lanka next month.
After a brilliant triple century in the red ball Cricket, young gun Karun Nair failed to amaze owing to his back-to-back failures with the bat in the recent times.
Seeing the same, Rohit's claim as a proper middle order batsman increases.
Rohit has three consecutive fifties to his name in his last three Test appearances against New Zealand. It was his injury which forced the hit-man to depart in further Test matches.
In the post-match conference of India vs Bangladesh semifinal, Virat said that the player like Rohit needs to be preserved for big tours coming later in the year.
What Virat Kohli had said?
- We need to protect him going further because later half of the year we have massive tours coming up, and his batting contribution will be a huge factor for us.
- He had a massive hip surgery, so muscles around that area are always vulnerable, and today also he felt a bit of stiffness in his right knee, and we decided the smart decision is to rest a guy who is playing ? there's no doubt about Rohit's ability and what he brings to the team.
