In the latest match against to Netherlands, Rohit Sharma is not happy with his knock. He scored a half-century, but it wasn’t pretty

Presumably, he means the execution, and not the intent or the result. He scored 53 off 39 balls at a strike-rate of 135.89. In a 73-run partnership off 56 balls with Virat Kohli, Rohit scored 52 off 35.

As to the earlier match that India against Pakistan, Rohit Sharma had massive praise for Virat Kohli, calling this ‘best-ever’ knock. While most of cricket fans questioned whether Virat Kohli’s ability to win big games was on the wane, Rohit Sharma has been consistent that it was never the case.

“Speaking about Virat, I honestly don’t think he was struggling with form or anything. He was batting as good as he was, but with him, the expectations are always so high that even if he gets a good 30 or 40, people tend to talk about it,” Rohit reiterated.

As a part of the team management, Rohit never felt the need to put pressure on Kohli. “From the team management’s perspective, I thought he was in good space right from the Asia Cup, where he got a month off and then he came back to Asia Cup. He was fresh, got a brilliant hundred there, got a couple of fifties if I’m not wrong. And then leading up to the World Cup, we know the quality that he has, and he’s done so well in these type of conditions in all three forms.”

Rohit said he knew that once Mohammed Nawaz was hit for two sixes in his first over, he won’t be given a ball. But as things panned out, the pacers finished their quota of overs and Babar Azam was forced to use his left-arm spinner. “Obviously, it’s not easy when you have to bowl the last over being a spinner and only 15 or 18 runs to defend. It’s not easy.”
