Irfan Pathan is slightly concerned about the form of the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma. Pathan feels that the levels of Rohit Sharma have gone down and the skipper quickly needs to regain touch.
Apart from leading the side, Rohit Sharma has a crucial role to play as an opener and set the tone for the rest of the batting lineup.
‘He is an amazing batter’: Irfan Pathan
“Absolutely, his level has gone down slightly, based on his standards. He is an amazing batter. The five centuries he scored in the 2019 World Cup, he batted amazingly well. He will have to probably remember that and regain his form.”
“When his form comes back, this Indian team which is getting ready for the 50-over World Cup, you will not get a more solid team than India, especially in these conditions where the World Cup is going to be played.”
‘He will come back refreshed’: Pathan on Rohit
“He will come back refreshed. Hopefully, he will come with preparation. He will have to regularly pay attention to his fitness and form and he will do that. He is already a great player, there is no doubt about that.”
“There is one thing about the captaincy, he is a fantastic captain of this team. He will manage this team very well and extremely easily but two things – he needs to give a lot of attention to his form and fitness.”
