In the Vizag Test against South Africa, Rohit Sharma was under focus for quite some time now and his mettle as an opener was proved by notching up of a double century.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli feels that it’s time to give Rohit Sharma a break and journalists got requested by him to “Stop Focusing On What Rohit Sharma Is Going To Do In Tests”. It was Virat Kohli’s opinion that Rohit Sharma uses his experience to the fore during the Vizag Test, and he has personally been in great space since then.
“Come on, give the guy a break now. You know he’s done well, let him enjoy his batting, let him have fun as he does in white-ball cricket. Stop focusing on what’s Rohit’s going to do in Tests,” Kohli said this on Wednesday, at the pre-match press conference.
“I think he’s in a great space, he’s playing really well. He looked relaxed in the first game which is great to see. The experience he’s accumulated over the years came to the fore,” he added.
An away series win from against the West Indies bagged India 120 points in the world Test Championship. Virat Kohli, however, voicing his displeasure over the points system, said, “If you would have asked me to make the points table, I would give double the points for an away Test win. That is something I would definitely like to see maybe after the first edition.”
In the Test series against South Africa, India leads 1-0. On Thursday, the second Test begins in Pune while in Ranchi, the final match will be played from October 19.
