Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has said that Rohit Sharma’s performance at the top of their in Test Cricket has been nothing short of a revelation.
The opener batsman has amassed 1030 runs at an excellent average of 64.37 in the 11 Tests. He has played as an opener. He has an even better record in the nine Tests at home, aggregating 901 runs at an outstanding average of 75.08.
“Rohit Sharma has been a revelation as an opening batsman. We have seen him in limited-overs cricket but in the red-ball cricket which does a lot more. There wasn’t that certainty that he would get runs,” said Sunil Gavaskar on Star Sports.
“But he has shown in the opportunities that he has had in the series against South Africa”.
“now over here that he is capable of getting runs as an opening batsman too. So, that has been a huge plus and the way he shows the time that he has, the way he paces his innings I think he is going to do a lot more for India,” added Gavaskar.
His 161 on a raging turner in the second Test against England is comfortably one of the best innings by a batsman on a spin-friendly track and the one that, according to skipper Virat Kohli, proved to be a series-defining knock.
“I think Rohit is the best player of spin in India. He has got more talent in his little finger than many others combined,” said Gavaskar.
“I would have said yes before this Test match. I am more than impressed with the way Rishabh Pant and Washington Sundar played spin. Rohit is a brilliant player, don’t get me wrong, and probably is the best so far but he has got those two sneaking up on his tail,” said Graeme Swann.
