India chief Rohit Sharma was excused on 42 in the third and last ODI against Sri Lanka in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday. The 35-year-old has now gone 50 innings without scoring 100 years in global cricket. Presently, previous India player Gautam Gambhir has raised worries over his long-century dry spell. Gambhir, while talking on Star Sports, feels Rohit should kick himself, and contrasted his circumstance with that of star player Virat Kohli, who had neglected to enlist a ton for over three years.
We ought to talk in a similar stage. Virat Kohli didn’t get a hundred for three and a half years. I figure Rohit ought to kick himself. It will be similarly severe with Rohit Sharma too. 50 innings are a ton, dislike he didn’t get a hundred out of a couple of games. Assuming you take a gander at the last (ODI) World Cup, one thing is absent from his game and it’s the capacity to get those hundreds,” Gambhir said during the mid-innings show.
Notwithstanding proposing that Rohit has been playing great, Gambhir feels the Indian skipper needs to show a similar yearning as Kohli, who has been in a scorching structure.
“Rohit Sharma thoroughly searches in great touch no question about that. Notwithstanding, he wants to change over these begins enormous thumps. Virat has tracked down his structure, and presently he wants to show a similar craving. His and Virat’s structure will be vital assuming that India needs to as far as possible this time,” he added.
Rohit last scored hundred years in September 2021, against Britain at the Oval.
Kohli, then again, has scored three centuries in his last four ODI innings. He had finished his century dry spell last year in the wake of crushing his lady T20I ton, against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup.
