Rohit Sharma ODI Success Might Not Translate Into Test Cricket:

Rohit Sharma is one of the greatest Indian cricketers of modern times. The right-hander was named one of the brightest talents of Indian cricket, who joined in the Indian team more than ten years ago. Rohit Sharma made a significant mark in a limited format but couldn’t leave a mark on its impact in the longer form of the game.

But recently, when team managers decided to open up Rohit Sharma to the Tests, his fortunes appear to change as he had a stellar bat series last year with South Africa and Bangladesh.

Rohit Sharma’s place in the team has discussed in the longer format of the game. Well, Wasim Jaffer, the former opener of India, said the same thing.

While speaking to the media, Wasim Jaffer said it’s a matter of playing Rohit Sharma for the first hour in tests. He added that in Tests, for shorter periods, the opener has done well, but that a mostly limited player is also going to succeed in the longer format. 

Hitman Played Against A Very Experienced South African Bowling:

Wasim Jaffer, who has praised Rohit Sharma’s double century and twin centuries against South Africa, said achieving that much score was not easy even in home conditions.

Wasim Jaffer thought that many of the people ignored runs, but pointed out that Sharma played against a highly experienced bowling attack from South Africa, which Kagiso Rabada and Vernon Philander loved.

Wasim Zafar further clarified his take on how he is doing in South Africa, England, New Zealand, and Australia. He said getting out of the first hour of the Test match was his only challenge. Rohit Sharma’s cricket is considered very strong for an opening batsman and has an average of 46.54.
