Being Rohit Sharma means being selfless – Dinesh Karthik and Harsha Bhogle in awe of the Indian captain

New Delhi, Sep 22, (Fast Mail News):-- As India emerged as the Asian champions after an exultant outing against Sri Lanka in the grand finale, Rohit Sharma took a step back and allowed Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill to have all the fun with the bat in a curtailed run-chase.
Rohit got off to a shaky start against Pakistan in the Asia Cup but was soon back on his feet against an undercooked Nepal while raging majestically against Pakistan in the Super Four game. He also went all guns blazing against a mercurial Sri Lanka before things took a turn for the worse.
Rohit’s recent form was questioned and with the World Cup loading, the fans expected that he would come all guns blazing just ahead of the tournament. Come the Asia Cup, all those fears were allayed as Rohit showcased exemplary control over his temperament and brought out an exquisite array of strokes.
Such was his magnificence that Dinesh Karthik heaped a boatload of praises on the Indian captain, highlighting why he is always a very special talent for the Indian cricket team. DK emphasized on what makes Rohit so special.
Karthik said, “He [Rohit] is somebody who, from being somebody who can be relied upon to get those big big scores, to transform into this player who doesn’t mind playing the impactful knocks. He is willing to take risks at different points of time while others fail to do so. That’s why he ends up losing his wicket. Sometimes you think ‘should he have played that shot?’. But being Rohit Sharma means being selfless. That he’s done really well.”
Harsha Bhogle chimed in with his pearls of wisdom too, stating, “His average has dropped a little bit – it’s not come down dramatically, but just a little bit. But the strike has gone up from 90 to 105. In our cricket discourses in our country, we are obsessed with individual records. Rohit is sending out a message saying, ‘I don’t mind making a quick 65 that sets the tempo for the whole side.’ In many ways, if you have to score 360, you are better off making 360/5 than making 360/2. Because it means more people have contributed to scoring those runs. Rohit is saying this is how I’m setting the base.”
