While the white-ball formats have seen the best of India’s Rohit Sharma, the opening batsman has traditionally struggled in the longest format of the game. Playing 47 innings of the 27 red-ball games, the belligerent batsman averages 39.62 scoring 3 tons and 10 half-centuries. Moreover, his inconsistency never helped him to become a permanent feature of the Test team
Recently, former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir shared his opinion on Rohit’s Test career. The cricketer turned politician believes that Rohit needs guidance from players like Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid who can transform him into a strong Test batsman. Moreover, the 37-year old sees immense strength among Indian batting line-up once Rohit achieves his Test mojo.
“Rohit needs to make the most out of his rich form by carrying it into Test cricket. There’s no doubt about the fact that he requires some guidance. I’d go on to say that if someone like Rahul Dravid or Sachin Tendulkar mentors him for a few months, we may get completely polished Test-ready batsman,” Gambhir said while dissecting Rohit’s red-ball cricket.
