During the third and final one-day international match between India and Sri Lanka, which took place on Sunday in Thiruvananthapuram, Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, was dismissed with the score of 42.
In international cricket, the player, who is now 35 years old, has now gone through 50 innings without scoring a century. Now, former India hitter Gautam Gambhir has expressed concern on his extended dry spell without scoring a century.
During an interview on Star Sports, Gambhir expressed his belief that Rohit must be kicking himself for his performance and contrasted it to that of the star batter Virat Kohli, who had gone more than three years without scoring a century.
“It would be best if we talked at the same period. For the first three and a half years of his career, Virat Kohli did not score a hundred. I believe that Rohit ought to be angry with himself right about now.
It will be just as challenging for Rohit Sharma as it is for you. Although fifty innings is a significant amount, it’s not as if he didn’t get a hundred runs in just one or two games.
If you look at the most recent One-Day International World Cup, you’ll notice that his game is missing one thing, and that thing is the ability to collect those hundreds “During the mid-innings programme, Gambhir commented on the game.
Gambhir believes that Indian captain Rohit needs to exhibit the same level of hunger as his teammate Kohli, who has been in red hot form, despite the fact that Gambhir believes Rohit has been playing well.
“There is no denying the fact that Rohit Sharma appears to be in fantastic shape. On the other hand, he has to turn these small blows into significant ones.
Now that Virat has found his form, he needs to demonstrate the same level of hunger. The form of both he and Virat will be crucial if India are going to go all the way this time “he remarked.
The Oval was the scene of Rohit’s most recent century, which he scored in September 2021 against England.
On the other hand, Kohli has hit three hundred in the last four one-day international innings that he has played. He had broken his century drought the year before by scoring his first Twenty20 International century while playing against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup.
