In the Asia Cup 2022, the Indian team used to come down to prepare for the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia, but till now it has not happened. Only the first three batsmen of India are unable to do much. Spin bowlers also fail to get wickets in the middle overs. Team captain Rohit Sharma is also not able to regain his rhythm.
Rohit Sharma has played two matches and has not been able to play big innings in both matches. He scored 12 runs in 18 balls against Pakistan and scored 21 runs in 13 balls against Hong Kong. Apart from being the captain of the Indian cricket team, Rohit is the most promising opener and it is very important for India to get into his rhythm.
Rohit Sharma was battling poor form in IPL 2022 and since then his batting has not been anything special. Rohit has not been able to bounce back to his original form. If Rohit’s poor form continues, the pressure on the team will increase. Former Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Hafeez has given a big statement about him. According to Hafeez, the pressure of captaincy is clearly visible on Rohit.
Weak, scared, and worried Rohit
During a conversation in a Pakistani channel, Mohammad Hafeez asked to play a video of Rohit Sharma, in which he is returning after India’s victory over Hong Kong. He then said, “You can see Rohit’s expressions after winning the match. This is his reaction after India won by 40 runs. I’ve talked about Rohit’s body language before. When he comes up for the toss. When he came, he looked weak, scared, and worried. I can’t see that Rohit used to play amazing innings. I think the captaincy is putting too much pressure on him. He is facing so many problems. “
Hafeez said, “Rohit’s form is falling. His IPL was bad. Since then he is out of shape. Also, India’s pressure is on him. He talks about the brand of cricket, positive games, and many more. But it’s not visible from his own body language. It’s easy to talk but hard to do. I think it will be difficult for him to continue as the Indian team’s captain going forward. Maybe he will be India’s captain for a long time. Will not be the captain. I have always seen Rohit enjoying the game and expressing himself. Now he is not doing that. Maybe he was having many thoughts in his mind. I feel bad for him. I believe that Either he himself or the Indian management should think about it.”
