This Is Probably The Best Decision The Management Has Taken In The Recent Past: Harbhajan Singh On Rohit Sharma As Test Opener
The first Test match against South Africa in the home ground will be unforgetful for Rohit Sharma. He played his first Test match as an opener and scored two centuries. Everybody is impressed with the batsman. Harbhajan Singh also not stops himself in praising Rohit’s game.
Rohit Sharma played a previous Test match in December 2018 in Melbourne ground as a middle-order batsman. Then he returned to India in between that series to meet his newborn daughter.
He got the first time opportunity to play as the Test opener during the recent Visakhapatnam Test. In the first chance, he has proved everyone with his batting that he deserves the place in Test Cricket.
In the last tour of West Indies, the player was selected in Test squad but was not given the chance in playing XI. Many former cricketers criticised that decision and Harbhajan too. This time when Rohit was given the chance of opener in the Test team, Harbhajan praised the team’s decision. He also opined that this is the best decision taken by the team management in the last 2-3 years.
“This is probably the best decision the management has taken in the recent past. This is going to be great for Team India going forward, Rohit Sharma opening in Tests. Once he gets set, he takes the game away from the opposition,” Harbhajan told to India Today.
I wish Rohit Sharma all the luck going forward – Harbhajan Singh
Rohit is an experienced opener in the limited-overs cricket. He has the ability to tackle the bowlers in One Day International and T20I. As an opener in the Test match, he played his natural game and hit boundaries as usual.
Harbhajan added, “He has got the technique to play the fast bowlers. I don’t know why it didn’t come to their mind earlier. Better late than ever, they say. He has got a chance. Rohit has proven with the numbers as well that he is more than capable to be in the Test squad. I wish him all the luck going forward.”
Meanwhile, India has headed for the next Test match which will begin tomorrow (9th October). The match will be played in Pune ground which will decide much about the series.
