Sunil Gavaskar said that I expected more from him (Rohit). In India it is different, but when you do well overseas that is really the test.
Sunil Gavaskar on Rohit Sharma
“I expected more from him (Rohit). In India it is different, but when you do well overseas that is really the test. That is where he has been a little disappointing. Even in the T20 format, with all the experience of the IPL, hundreds of matches as captain, with a mix of best IPL players not being able to get to the finals has been disappointing,” Sunil Gavaskar said at the Indian Express Idea exchange.
“They should be asking questions, ‘Why did you field first?’ Okay, it was explained at the toss that it was overcast and all. The question after that should be, ‘You didn’t know about Travis Head’s weakness against the short ball?’ Why was the bouncer employed only when he had scored 80 runs? You know, the moment Head came in to bat, in the commentary box, we had Ricky Ponting saying, ‘Bounce him, bounce him.’ Everyone knew about it but we didn’t try,” Sunil Gavaskar further added.
The next upcoming biggest assignment for Rohit Sharma’s men is Asia Cup and World Cup in India. They want to end the India’s ICC Trophy drought this time in India. The World Cup is going to start on October 5 in Narendra Modi stadium. The previous World Cup finalist New Zealand and England going to face in the World Cup opener.
