Indian cricket stars Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in conversation
The Indian cricket squad for the T20 World Cup has been announced with no real surprises. The side will be led by Rohit Sharma, with KL Rahul as his deputy. Going into the World Cup, which starts in mid-October, team management could be relieved with the form of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, who both appeared to be doing well in the recently concluded Asian Cup. While Kohli scored a ton and two half-centuries, Rohit also scored half a century against eventual Asia Cup champion Sri Lanka.
Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt spoke in a video on his YouTube channel about Rohit’s skills and where he stands compared to Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan.
“Unka (Rohit) comparison nahi banta (with Babar and Rizwan). With his skills, Rohit ki fitness Kohli se aadhi bhi ho, toh usse zyada destructive player nahi hai. Fir uska aur sirf AB de Villiers ka match reh jaata hai , beechme koi player nahi aata. Agar woh (Rohit) bohot fit hotey Kohli ki tarah toh pata nahi woh kya kartey. (Rohit cannot be compared to Babar and Rizwan. With his skills, Rohit would be the most destructive player if his condition is half as was as good as Kohli’s. Only AB de Villiers comes close to him),” said Butt on his YouTube channel.
Rohit Sharma has been trying to get India off to a fast start in recent matches and failing to get big scores as a result. He wants his team to play with aggressive intentions and tries to set a good example himself. He played a standout 72 knockout against Sri Lanka in the Super 4 encounter, which helped India recover from early setbacks.
India would need Rohit ti on all cylinders at the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia if they are to get their hands on the trophy.
Virat Kohli also took shape in the Asian Cup, finishing at the top of the charts. He scored his long-awaited 71st International Ton in the match against Afghanistan, his first in the format. He also scored half a century against Pakistan and Hong Kong.
