Rohit has last chance to confirm his place in Test: Gambhir
Cricket : Former Indian cricket team cricketer Gautam Gambhir has said that Rohit Sharma is a very dangerous player of limited overs format, but at the same time we have to believe that the Test series against South Africa will be a do or die situation f him. Gambhir said that if Rohit does well in Test cricket then there is a world for him, but if he is not able to do it then the time will come to try another batsman to start the cross.
Gambhir said that for the home series, I wanted to see Rohit opening and kept a young player as a backup. Gambhir said that I do not want Rohit to be selected in the team and keep him on the bench. If they have been selected in the team, then they should be made open. I have always said that this player is not meant to be kept on the bench. If there is no place for them in the middle order, then they should be fielded as openers.
Gambhir revealed that during the IPL, Rohit Sharma and AB de Villiers gave me sleepless nights.
Rohit has played only 27 matches in his six-year Test career. During this time he has scored 1585 runs at an average of 39.62. He has three centuries to his name in this format, including two in his first series against the West Indies in 2013. According to Gambhir, it is not that Rohit does not get a chance. They cannot complain about this at all. Rather, I believe that no other batsman has got as many opportunities as Rohit Sharma in international cricket. He said that of course, opening in Test cricket is a challenging task, but Rohit can do it by changing his mindset.
