Rohit Sharma To Me, Is Like Sachin Tendulkar To Others: KL Rahul

Rohit Sharma To Me, Is Like Sachin Tendulkar To Others: KL Rahul

Rohit Sharma has made shot-making look effortlessly easy. The opening batsman captivated the audience with his pull shot which often ends up in the second tier. Rohit Sharma usually starts off slow and accelerates once he scores his century. He has been a joy to watch over the years.

Moreover, Rohit Sharma is the only batsman to hit three double centuries in the ODI format, making it look like a cake walk. Two of his three double tons have come against Sri Lanka with career-best score of 264 runs. By his own admission, Rohit Sharma has said that, if he stays in the crease for the first 10 overs it will be difficult to get him out.

Rohit Sharma is someone in the team, for me, like Sachin Tendulkar for some cricketers: KL Rahul

KL Rahul admitted he is a big fan of his opening partner Rohit Sharma. Rahul revealed that he was dumbstruck watching Rohit Sharma, like some cricketers get after watching Sachin Tendulkar. Adding, he has still not been able to get through when he is off the field with Rohit Sharma.

“Humbled by Rohit’s words (that KL Rahul is the first choice and then it’s decided between me and Dhawan in T20Is). I have been a huge fan of his batting and I have played with him for a few years now but he is someone who is in the team, how do I say, like some cricketers get dumbstruck after watching Sachin Tendulkar, they don’t know what to say. When I am with Rohit off the field I have still not been able to get through,” KL Rahul said in India Today’s latest episode of Inspiration.

With the series against Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe called-off, Rohit will be next seen in action after August.
