Ro­hit ‘the hit­man’ Sharma

Mint ST - - FIRST -

That Ro­hit Sharma has ta­lent was never in doubt. He has three dou­ble cen­turies in One Day In­ter­na­tion­als and four cen­turies in T20 in­ter­na­tion­als, the most by any player. It’s his con­sis­tency that’s al­ways been an is­sue. In the sec­ond T20 against the West Indies on 6 No­vem­ber, Sharma played out a maiden over at the top of the or­der be­fore launch­ing into an all-out at­tack, scor­ing an un­beaten 111 off just 61 balls. Dur­ing the course of the in­nings, he be­came the high­est run scorer for In­dia in T20IS, and the sec­ond high­est in the world. It looks like he has found con­sis­tency in the shorter for­mats of the game and his per­for­mance has earned him an­other call to the Test team. Cricket fans will be hop­ing he main­tains this con­sis­tency in the 2019 World Cup and can repli­cate the same in Tests. —PKS
