Indian explosive opener Rohit Sharma is hopeful of making a comeback into the upcoming test series against Australia starting from 23rd February. He was injured during the ODI series against New Zealand and has not played cricket for 3 months.
“I am trying to make a comeback in the Australia series. That is the series I am eyeing. I am at the NCA (National Cricket Academy) right now and everybody is trying to help me out,” Rohit said on the sidelines of an event here.
“The approach will be no different against Australia, as it was against England. We have been doing well in all formats and we are confident of continuing that in the series against Australia,” Rohit told PTI.
Rohit was injured during the fifth ODI at Vizag where he scored 70 runs. He injured his leg during that match and since then he has not been seen in action. In the ODI format of late, Rohit Sharma has been missed with KL Rahul scoring 8, 5 and 11 in the recently concluded ODI series against England. “If Rohit was in the side, there is no question he would be opening with Rahul. I have no urge to open, I play at three, I can play anywhere according to what the management thinks. You can’t ask someone to open if he has not done it in the past. It would be unfair on him,” Kohli had said recently.
Rohit Sharma is the only batsmen to score 2 double centuries in One day international cricket. He is someone who can play with positive intent and put pressure on the opposition team in shorter version.
