Rohit Sharma’s batting in the ongoing Test series against England mighty impressed the Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
Tendulkar said Rohit is now taking the lead by showing others side’ of his temperament and playing accordingly with the match’s situation.
It’s the first time that Rohit Sharma is playing his first series as an opener in English conditions, has registered scores of 36,12*, 83, and 21in the two tests.
In a conversation with PTI, Sachin said ‘Whatever I have seen, I feel he has taken the lead, and he has shown the other side of his temperament and how he can change his game and adapt to situations and play accordingly.’
From Australia and now in Engeland Rohit is yet to get that big score in the overseas Test as an opener, but he has looked the most assuring one in the Tests he has played. Even in the World Test Championship against New Zealand, Rohit looked absolutely okay before he was dismissed against the run of play for 34 and 30 in the first and second innings respectively.
Rohit was looking set for his maiden overseas hundred as a Test opener in the first innings at Lord’s when a beautiful in-dipper from James Anderson cut his innings short.
Tendulkar says’ Rohit Sharma has been a leader, who has been well-supported by KL Rahul. The right-hander scored 129 and was declared Player of the Match of the Lord’s Test which India won by 151 runs.
“He has been a leader there and KL has supported him brilliantly. As far as playing pull shot is concerned, he has cleared the fence with that shot and I am looking at what he has been able to achieve for the team in both Tests,” he added.
Sachin Tendulkar, the master blaster was actually impressed with Rohit’s technique and particularly his keenness to leave the ball alone.
Sachin further said, “Rohit has left the ball and defended the ball brilliantly or equally well. He was always a superb player but seeing his last few innings in England, I can say he has definitely gone a notch higher’’.
