Shoaib Malik Commends Rohit Sharma’s Dominance, Contrasting Him with Virat Kohli, Babar Azam, and Joe Root
Rohit Sharma’s assertive batting approach has significantly influenced the performance of other batters in the ICC World Cup 2023.
The Men in Blue achieved an impeccable record, winning all nine of their tournament games and are set to face New Zealand in the semi-finals at Wankhede Stadium on November 15.
In the match against the Netherlands, Rohit Sharma, along with Shubman Gill, provided a formidable start, amassing 100 runs in the initial powerplay overs. Sharma contributed 61 runs, featuring 8 fours and 2 sixes in Bengaluru.
India posted a formidable 410/4 on the scoreboard, with Shreyas Iyer (128) and KL Rahul (102) notching up centuries. The Dutch side was bowled out for 250, resulting in India securing a convincing 160-run victory.
Shoaib Malik praised Rohit for his exceptional batting performance, highlighting his ability to dominate all bowlers of the opposing team. Drawing a contrast, Malik mentioned that while Virat Kohli, Babar Azam, Kane Williamson, and Joe Root tend to target specific bowlers, Rohit stands out with his all-encompassing approach.
Using a metaphor, Malik likened Rohit to an Arabic teacher who commands respect, emphasizing that opponents rise to the occasion when Rohit takes the crease.
