Ravi Shastri was asked,Who was the idea of opening Rohit in Test, know the answer
The three-Test series between India and South Africa is going to start on 2 October. In this Test series, Rohit Sharma, the limited overs vice-captain of the Indian team, is going to get new responsibilities. He can be seen opening with Mayank Agarwal in the Test series against South Africa. Team India head coach Ravi Shastri has said a few special things about Rohit Sharma as an opening batsman in Test cricket. What happened to Ravi Shastri? Let's know: -
First Ravi Shastri was asked how did the idea of opening the Test from Rohit Sharma in Test, did you and Virat Kohli decide on it or did the selectors suggest it? In response, Ravi Shastri said that it is all mixed up and I always feel that Rohit Sharma is an X factor in the team. But it is very difficult that a batsman batting at No. 5 or No. 6 is called to open. It is all connected with the mind. If he gets out of this, he can prove to be the match winner for us. We will give them time for this and we will not pressurize them.
Next, Ravi Shastri was asked how did you progress as a batsman, how can a middle-order batsman become an upper-order batsman? Responding to this, the head coach said that this is the biggest reason that I asked him to do it in 2015. I was talking to him about my experience. There have been many such players. Who should have opened for India. But there was power in a lesser player. Because sometimes just five batsmen are needed in the subcontinent. It was the right opportunity for me and I started to start the innings in this way.
Talking about former veteran Indian opening batsman Virender Sehwag, Ravi Shastri said that I met him in the year (2001-02) on the West Indies tour. Then I talked to him for 15 minutes about the opening in Test cricket. I told him that you do it and it will prove to be the best situation for you. Everything else is now history. I told him that this is just a mind game.
