Australia’s Test XI 2021: After dominating white-ball cricket and his home conditions for years. Rohit Sharma proved this year that he can score big Test runs outside of Asia. And also a strong 2021 season, in which he finished second only to Joe Root in terms of runs. Could have been even better if the classy right-hander had converted multiple strong starts into big hundreds.
His numbers would have looked much better if he had been able to convert 97 (in Sydney), 89* (in Brisbane), and 91 (in Chennai) into hundreds. The manner in which he demolished Australia and England at the start of the year earned him comparisons to the great Adam Gilchrist.
