Inzamam-ul-Haq says “Rohit Sharma attacks strong bowlers in the opposition” in T20 World Cup 2021. He has described Rohit Sharma, as a class act. He is always willing to take on strong bowlers in the opposition. According to Inzamam, India rectified their mistake of demoting Rohit to no.3. Also, in the New Zealand game by made open against Afghanistan. It was rewarded for the same. Rohit was the man of the match against Afghanistan for his 47-ball 74. He smashed Rashid Khan for two consecutive sixes in the 14th over of the innings.
Inzamam praised Rohit on his YouTube channel, saying that the Indian opener could influence the game on his own. During a game of limited-overs cricket.
“In the previous match, Rohit Sharma was moved down the order. It showed that the team did not have confidence in the players. But Rohit Sharma is a kind of player who can change the game single-handedly in ODIs and T20Is,” Inzamam-ul-Haq said.
“The way he took on Rashid Khan, who is the backbone of the opposition team, and hit him for two sixes. He demoralized the other bowlers as well, who would have seen their main weapon being thrashed. That is the class of Rohit Sharma. He attacks strong bowlers in the opposition,” Inzamam-ul-Haq added.
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul
Both Rohit and KL Rahul were involved in a record. Also, the opening stands at 140 against Afghanistan. India posted 210 for 2 and then restricted the opponents to 144 for 7. Despite the win, India’s chances of qualifying for the semi-finals. According to Inzamam, India would be confident of catching up. It is with the run rate but will need Afghanistan to get the better of New Zealand.
“Lastly, the Afghanistan vs New Zealand match is very crucial now. Run rate is not an issue for India, they have the ability to catch up on it. But if Afghanistan manages to defeat New Zealand, maybe if they get a turning track, then India could benefit. If Afghanistan wins that game, then it could come down to the run rate of the teams. I feel India will be able to beat New Zealand and Afghanistan when it comes to the run-rate scenario. Yes, their current run rate is down, but they can cover it against Namibia and Scotland. The tournament is still open because of India’s win,” Inzamam-ul-Haq said.
