Want to be a professional cricketer?
The vice-captain of the India National Cricket Team, Rohit Sharma, has named the two overseas batsmen he enjoys watching. Rohit, himself, has been an epitome of success in world cricket ever since his uprise in the 2013 Champions Trophy. Since then, Rohit has not looked back in his career and has scaled multiple records to his name in recent years.
Although Rohit Sharma made his debut for India in 2007, it was in 2013 that Rohit became Ro-Hit. In the ICC Champions Trophy 2013, former Indian captain, MS Dhoni, being his usual self, took a very strange decision of going into the tournament with a new opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. And as the entire world has seen over the years, the decision bore fruits for Indian cricket. Team India went on to win the tournament in England, and as they say, rest is history.
Now, Rohit has named the two overseas players he absolutely enjoys watching, and his favourites include an Australian and an Englishman.
Rohit Sharma Names The Two Overseas Players He Loves Watching
Cricketers are involved in chat sessions to interact with their fans. In the process, Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma organised a chat symposium where he was asked an interesting question. Rohit was asked to reveal the name of the batsman he enjoys watching the most.
The 33-year-old surprisingly didn’t go for his fellow Indian cricketers; he instead picked two overseas batsmen. The Indian opener said that he enjoys the batting of Australian genius cricketer Steve Smith and England’s swashbuckling opener Jason Roy.
“Steve Smith & Jason Roy,” Rohit wrote in his Instagram story.
Smith has so far played 73 Tests and accumulated 7,227 runs. Similarly, in ODIs, the Sydney-born has amassed 4,162 runs in 125 games. Roy, on the other, performed a vital role in England’s 2019 World Cup triumph. Overall, the right-handed batsman has scored 3,434 runs in 87 ODIs, 860 runs in 35 T20Is.
