Rohit Sharma
by CricketArchive Staff Reporter

Player:RG Sharma

DateLine: 18th June 2009


He looks tremendously good when he bats in full flow. He is full of gifted talent, has the ability to pick up boundaries at will and has the extra time that is needed to play a better than a good shot. Another find of India's wonderful T20 World Cup campaign in 2007, Sharma can play both the roles of a sedate batsman and because he has all the shots in the book can also play aggressor if the situation demands. He did very well in the VB series that India won against Australia in Australia and then also played a very handy knock in the first final batting alongside Sachin Tendulkar. He was often the last ball boundary scorer for India in the T20 World Cup after he came in pretty down in the middle order, with hardly a few balls to face. He was bought for US$750,000 by the Deccan Chargers in the IPL, and made 404 runs at 36.73 including four fifties justifying the high price the franchisee paid for him. He looked good in the IPL second edition. He won a game hitting 26 runs off Mashrafe Mortaza’s one over when 21 were required of that over. Rohit was then given the responsibility to open the innings alongside Gautam Gambhir as Sehwag was nursing an injury. He looked good in the initial stages of the tournament but as the bigger games came around, this talent also failed at key moments.
