Rohit Sharma, India’s vice captain for ODI and T20 team and India’s premium opened my batsman is name among millions. Having a god gifted timing gave him an edge over other batsmen. In limited over formats he is no doubt, one of the best batsman in world.
He is currently ranked 2 in ODI ranking. he is only batsman to score three triple hundred in ODI cricket and also only batsman in world to score 250+ runs in an ODI match. In T20 also he is India’s most successful batsman.
But when it comes to Test cricket he did not had much success. In 27 matches he played till now he only had 3 centuries out which two came at start of his test carrier. He started his test carrier against West Indies in 2013. In his first match he scored 176 run in first inning and in the next match, which was also Sachin Tendulkar’s farewell match he scored a match winning 111 runs.
Means he started his test cricket with a great bang scoring two centuries in two innings. But after Rohit did not have his best time in test cricket .he managed to score his 3rd century after a gap of 3 year and that shows his indefinite form in test cricket.he was playing at mostly no 5,6 or 7. But he never can seal his spot.
Now after having a great world cup outing where he created a world record by scoring 5 centuries in a single world cup edition, it was just a matter of time when selector were forced to include him in test squad. but with middle order position has been sealed Rohit did not get chance in recently concluded test series against West Indies. Now selector have decided to give him a chance to open for India in white dress too after many Ex cricketer suggested.
He was also made captain of Team that is going to play practice match against South Africa. But in that too Rohit get out for duck in first inning. Now Rohit had to do well in Upcoming series against South Africa other wise it could be his last chance to fix his spot in Indian team .
