Rohit Sharma to Replace Virat Kohli on the SA Tour
Despite missing out on the home season of 2016 due to a finger injury, Rohit Sharma is still one of the most valuable players for India. He made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka in 2006 and was a key member of the winning team that season. In 2007, he played the most memorable ODI innings with 164 runs from 158 deliveries, including 16 sixes. His batting average of over 40 is well above the average of the ODI format, and his fast bowling has been an important asset for Indian cricket.
A poor run of form saw Rohit Sharma lose his place in the Indian team for the first time in over a decade. However, the hamstring injury he suffered in the first two Tests led to his selection as vice-captain for the series against South Africa. He was also selected as the opener against New Zealand, making him the first Indian to score a century and a half-century in the same Test as the batting legend Virat Kohli.
While the BCCI has not yet revealed the nature of Sharma’s injury, it is thought to be a hamstring strain, although the extent of the damage is yet to be determined. It is unclear whether the injury is a tear or strain, so the team is waiting for the scan report to determine the exact nature of the damage. India A captain is expected to be Rohit’s replacement in the ODI series, as the Indian team is scheduled to play three Tests and as many ODIs against South Africa.
In 2013, Sharma was named captain of the Mumbai Indians. He also led the team to victory in the IPL and led the team to the Champions League Twenty20 competition. The Mumbai Indians captain was born in Bansod, Nagpur, but his family moved to Borivali, Mumbai, where he was raised by his grandfather and uncles. During the South African series, he will replace Rahane as the vice-captain.
The hamstring injury caused by Rohit Sharma will prevent him from being able to bat for India in the Test series. The hamstring injury is usually a short-term injury that will take around four weeks to heal. But the BCCI has not yet disclosed the scan report and it is still too early to predict the outcome of the series. If the hamstring injury is a serious problem, Rohit Sharma will miss the entire series, so he will have to sit out of the first one.
While Rahul’s selection is a major blow for the Indian team, he should be considered for the vice-captaincy position. He is an important player and will be missed in the upcoming series against South Africa. But despite the injury, he will be out for the red-ball fixtures. So he will be a big loss in that regard. The hamstring issue will limit the options of the Indian team, so it is worth keeping a close eye on his availability.
While Virat Kohli was a key player for India, the veteran had to settle for a lower position in the IPL. The captain’s role is an important one in the team, and he will be missed in this role. If he is not available for the Tests, Rohit Sharma will be the vice-captain in the IPL. It will be a big boost for the Indian team.
A good batsman is an important component of a team, and Rohit Sharma has been one of the most influential players in the history of Indian cricket. He has scored over 2000 T20I runs in his career and has also been the captain of the Indian team in the IPL. He is active in many charities and other causes outside of cricket and has been a popular voice for the nation’s team for many years.
The Mumbai Indians have been impressed with the way Rohit Sharma has stepped up his game. The captain is the most valuable player on a team and is a good leader. Besides being an outstanding captain, Rohit Sharma is also a great teammate. He is one of the most sought-after batsmen in the Indian T20 league and has become a vital asset for the Mumbai Indians. In December 2017, he scored his third double century in ODIs for India. In addition to this, he also equaled the world record for the joint-fastest T20I century.
IND VS SA Bigger Challenge
Cheteshwar Pujara has not scored a Test century since his debut in 2008. While statistics show that he has lost his ability to score off full-length deliveries, fans still love him and clamor for a new face in the team. While most players struggle to hit boundaries in Australia, Pujara has managed to average nearly 30 in the shorter format. It is a sign that he has a bright future in the Indian cricket team.
While his absence from Test cricket has worried some critics, his recent performances have been impressive. He was selected in the Indian team ahead of Rahul Dravid in October 2010, scoring a brilliant 72 in a tricky chase against Australia in Bangalore. The century was his highest individual score in domestic cricket and made him the joint-fastest Indian to reach 1000 Test runs. However, his lack of runs is a concern and has hindered him in the national team.
Despite his lackluster performance in the first two Tests, Pujara has managed to stay in the Indian team for more than 10 years. He has a century and a half-century and has averaged more than fifty against Australia in 20 Tests. His innings have been so consistent that he is regarded as the ‘Man of the Under-19 World Cup’. The performance has made him a must-watch player.
In the last home series against Australia, India picked Pujara, replacing Yuvraj Singh. He made his debut in the second Test of the series at Bangalore and was dismissed in his first innings. He managed just four runs and was out by Mitchell Johnson. He made a comeback in August 2012 against New Zealand in Hyderabad. His century was the difference between the teams. In this series, he is the key to victory for the Indian team.
A Test-match century would give India the edge over the opposition. The Test-match series will be a good gauge of whether Pujara is fit enough to play for India. The right fitness level will help him maintain his top-level form. A test-match hundred takes about five months. During the other two, he can bat for up to three years. A century is a great score in the longest format. The other is an example of a Test specialist.
Apart from his high strike rate, Pujara’s poor batting technique has also caused concerns. His last century came in January 2019 against Australia in Sydney. In his last 10 innings, he has scored just two fifties and has failed to convert his starts. Those are not positive signs and he needs to improve his batting to ensure he has a chance to play Test cricket in the long run. It will be a crucial test series for India.
A teetotaler, Pujara is a teetotaler who has played cricket for many years. He plays for Derbyshire county in England. His debut century against Glamorgan was not a great match but later went on to score 90 against Surrey. After his debut, he had a century against Leicestershire, but his batting has been a flop. In England, Pujara is a teetotaler who has never played a test but is still a teetotaler and Virat Kohli has said that he has never met him.
In the UK, the right-handed Pujara has been a key player for India. He has scored over half a million runs for his country in his career and averages 51 in Tests. He has also been a key player for his team. But despite his impressive record, many have become tired of his antics. After one mega knock against Australia, he dragged the Aussies’ innings to victory.
The dismissal of Pujara was a classic example of a ‘catch’. Originally, the ball had moved only slightly to kiss the edge of the bat. Then, Pujara played all over the ball. His feet didn’t move towards the ball but moved sideways, and Jos Buttler caught it and took a wicket. This is the way to dismiss a player. A catch is a golden duck, and it is a good start to an innings.
The Indian team has been without Pujara for a few days. The right-handed batsman has struggled to score runs in the Tests. On his last visit to England, he scored a century and a half. In the second innings, he scored two hundred and a half-century. But the Indian team has lost the series. The wicketkeeper has done the job well for Team India, and the skipper has shown the rest of the team that he will be a reliable pillar of the middle order.
