Indian batting coach, Vikram Rathour doesn’t want Rohit Sharma to change his approach in the shortest format of the game. Rohit Sharma has an exceptional record in T20 cricket. Ahead of the 5-match T20 series against England, his role would be vital in the team’s success in the series.
“Somebody like Rohit has a very set game-plan and he has been extremely successful following that game-plan. So I would not really want him to change that. He is somebody who takes his time initially, gets set first, and then goes scores big. That has worked well for us. That has worked well for him. So I absolutely find no reason to change that at this point,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Rathour as saying.
Rohit Sharma was the best batsman for India in the recently concluded Test series between India and England. He ended with 345 runs to his name in 4 matches at an average of 57.50.
KL Rahul has been donning the wicket-keeping gloves for India in white-ball cricket. However, with the Rishabh Pant back in sublime form, it remains to be seen who will keep wicket for the side in the T20 series.
“KL has done really well as a wicketkeeper-batsman. He has been a superb cricketer, he has batted really well, he has kept reasonably well. Now Rishabh [Pant] (is) back in form and doing well, let’s see how it goes. Once this situation comes, what the team management is looking to do, that’ll happen on the day of the game and how this series goes,” said Rathour.
India and England are due to play five T20s, starting from Friday. All the matches of the T20 series will be played at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium.
