Rohit Sharma has been an incredible servant of Indian cricket. He made his debut for the team in 2007 but he couldn’t cash on the opportunities he got. However, ever since he started opening the innings for the team in 2013, he has been a different beast altogether. The batter has become the backbone of the team in all three formats and is also doing a great job as a leader.

Guys who have come in have done the job perfectly – Rohit Sharma on Test series win

Rohit Sharma while talking about the Test series win against England praised the young players for stepping up for the team. He pointed out how the game kept challenging the players and they dealt with pressure well. He added:

“Given where we were at before the series, a lot of the players [were] missing – I have mentioned it quite a lot, so I don’t want to keep talking about it. These guys who have come in have done the job perfectly. They have taken the responsibility perfectly and you can take a lot of pride from performances like this with inexperienced players.

“Whatever you say, Test cricket throws different kind of challenges, [and] different kind of pressures. But some of these [players] – the way they have dealt with the pressures throughout the series – has been superb. A lot of these young guys have never played Test cricket before, never been part of the Indian dressing room.”

Rohit Sharma will be next seen in action when India will take on England in the fifth Test in Dharamsala. He would be hoping to win the last game as well and end the series on high.
