The decision to open in Test cricket salvaged Rohit Sharma's career, according to Ian Chappell.

Former Australian captain Ian Chappell stated that Rohit Sharma’s Test career was salvaged by his ability to open the batting. In the Nagpur Test against Australia, the Indian captain struck a stunning 120 to silence all doubters. As a result of his century, India scored 400 runs in their first innings, which helped them defeat Australia by an innings and 132 runs.

Chappell stated that Rohit’s ability to bat ahead of Virat Kohli has kept him from being overshadowed by Kohli’s popularity. He stated that becoming the captain of his team has also elevated his batting ability.

“Rohit’s career was saved by his decision to open in Tests. Batting ahead of Virat Kohli has kept him from being intimidated by the popularity of the former skipper. The discipline necessary to lead a team has added another level to Rohit’s hitting, according to Chappell in his Mid-Day column.
The former Australian captain added that Rohit’s excellent assessment of the pitch and confidence in his defence on a challenging track enabled him to produce a wonderful hundred.

“Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian team, assessed the state of the field. “He played a magnificent innings that exhibited confidence in his own defence, his wide stroke range on a turning but not impossible pitch, and his iron-willed discipline,” noted Chappell.

Ian Chappell upset Australian bowlers.
Chappell added that the Indian skipper frustrated the Australian bowlers with his broad variety of smashes and demonstrated how to bat on Indian surfaces to everyone.
“Rohit not only displayed a variety of strokes, but he also vexed the Australian bowlers by playing them only when it was appropriate. His example was brilliantly followed by the vastly improved Ravindra Jadeja, who taught all players, Indian and foreign, how to play on Indian pitches “authored Chappell
