Rohit Sharma, the veteran team India opener, will lead the Indian team in the 50-over World Cup for the very first time in 2023 and it would be a great honour for the right-handed batter. For the unversed, Rohit’s first multinational tournament was the 20-20 World Cup 2022 where the team got crushed by England in the semi-finals.
With the 50-over World Cup just months away, the players are giving it all to make a cut to the Indian squad and make a statement to the world. We decided to handpick three reasons why Rohit might replicate his 2019 World Cup form in the approaching tournament as well.
Here are the three reasons why Rohit Sharma could replicate his 2019 50-over World Cup form in 2023 as well:
3) Getting back to form
As far as Rohit’s form in 2019 is concerned, the batter was at his peak and was the only hope for India barring KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and Jasprit Bumrah. Team India were knocked out of the tournament by New Zealand in the semi-finals and the opener gathered 648 runs with five centuries to his name in the multinational tournament in 2019.
During the series against ODI, in the final contest on Tuesday, Rohit ended his three-year ODI century drought and made a statement ahead of the much-awaited multinational tournament. His getting back to form is a warning sign for all other nations and this might help him replicate his 2019 form.
