Rohit Sharma’s performance against Hong Kong

India beat Hong Kong by 40 runs on Wednesday night in the second match of the Asia Cup 2022, India qualifies comfortably after two wins against Pakistan and Hong Kong for super 4. Here in this article let us find out Rohit Sharma’s performance against Hong Kong in detail.

India was comfortable in beating Hong Kong on Wednesday night, where we also saw Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav in amazing form but skipper Rohit Sharma was once dismissed after failing to score big runs.

With the current form of Rohit Sharma, people are worried and tensed as the upcoming fixtures are tough and India needs every player to perform well to win some silverware.

The former Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez after India vs Hong Kong matches stated that “His form is in the decline. He had a poor IPL, after that his flow is missing. Plus the pressure on India. He is talking about a lot of things like the brand of cricket, playing positively, this and that but not reflecting by his body language. It’s easy to talk, but to do it is difficult. It’s not my prediction, but my opinion is that going forward, it will be difficult for him to continue leading. He might not be able to lead for a long time. I have always seen Rohit enjoying and expressing himself. Now, he is not expressing himself. Maybe he is lost in too many things. I feel sorry for him.”

Rohit Sharma after the match in the post-match presentation said that “We batted pretty well to start with, got to a very good score. Came out and bowled reasonably well, we could have done slightly better with the ball. (SKY) The kind of innings he played today, the words will be short. We have seen that with him now and then. He comes up with such kinds of knocks. He just comes out and bats fearlessly which is what the team expects from him. Some of the shots he played today are not written anywhere in the book. It was very pleasing to watch. Shot selection was also crucial.”

India will now face the winner of the Hong Kong vs Pakistan match on Sunday night at Dubai International Stadium.
