Rohit Sharma Willing to Open for India in Tests
The Indian openers are having a tough time dealing with the red ball in English conditions. Visitors lost the first two Tests and are now desperate to stop Joe Root’s men from sealing the series. Indian opener Rohit Sharma feels India still have a chance to make a comeback.
The explosive opener also said he is willing to open the innings for India in Tests if the need arises. With Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul failing miserably with the bat, a potential comeback for Rohit in Tests is a possibility.
Rohit open to the top spot in Tests
“Look, I have never been offered (to open the innings in Tests) yet, but I am open to anything as in whatever the team management wants. I never thought I will be an opener in ODIs when I started playing or when I was playing for India. But it happened along the way, so I (want to) keep my options open. No option is shut for me, so if the opportunity comes, I will take it,” Rohit told media persons at a promotional event.
Rohit Sharma’s Test dream still alive
He said the selection is not in his hands, but he is willing to play in the longer format of the game.
“I want to be part of the (Test) team, but it is not in my hands. I have to wait for the opportunity, whenever it comes, I have to be ready for it. To be ready, I am doing everything, training, doing as much as possible to give myself the best chance when the opportunity comes there,” he added.
Rohit backed his countrymen to do well in the forthcoming games.
“Yes, of course, we have to believe that we can do it. It’s not going to be that easy. We have done it in South Africa we lost the first two Test matches, and then we bounced back in Johannesburg and won that Test match,” Rohit said.
