    For sustained hitting Rohit, ABDV, Gayle when in the zone. He is six hitting monster. His six per innings in ODI is better than Afridi or Gayle or ABDV. Unlike Afridi he is so easy on the eye.

    Really enjoy this guy's batting.

    He's such a natural strokemaker and very pleasing on the eye.

    Once he's in, that's it, he's very difficult to remove.

    Best advice is - get him early.

    Yes, he can get into a zone where, bar maybe ABD, I've not seen many batsman go. Makes everything look elegant and effortless. Has the classical eye catching style but also a 7th gear, insanely gifted batsman.

    Man that was some insane hitting, most of sixes were landing in tier 2 stands and some even tier 3.

    Actually KL Rahuls's sixes were breathtaking as well. In any other match it would have been the highlight of the innings. Rohit managed to eclipse him.

    I didnt get to see Rahul's batting. As on youtube i only managed to get Rohit's innings. But maybe ill try to catch the entire match highlights.

    I have always supported Rahul and wanted him to be part of our ODI setup as well instead of TTF Karthick. I hope Rahul now manages to secure his spot in Indian lineup.

    Imagine this lineup in WC 19

    Rohit
    Dhawan
    Kohli
    Rahul
    Iyer/ Pandey
    Pandya
    Dhoni/Pant


    Wish we could somehow get Pant in our lower order and we would have devastating lineup that can match blows with blows.

    Sharma is a quality player but has not showed his performances in knockouts unlike Dhawan. He is still a tremendous player and a 35 ball ton is nothing to scoff at.

    To be honest yes, he's up there. Been a fan of his batting since I saw him play for the Deccan Chargers in IPL 1/2.

    ...Except against us, he can't do jack.

    I think that's enough to suggest he can dominate Quality pacers.

    Okay.. The one against Starc was arguably his best ever inning in Melbourne. His 150 against Steyn in India was another high quality one. Yes, the pitches were flat but he played excellent innings and credit for that. There are other instances too. He got runs Vs Boult and others too.

    To digress between Rohit and Rahul, Rahul was aesthetically better with his sixes compared to Rohit in this match. He is so good to watch when he hits sixes.

    Rohit Sharma is a bit of complicated fellow.

    Watching him gives you a pukka FTB vibe. When something is there in the pitch, he really really struggles.

    However if you dig deep into his career, he actually has played good knocks against quality bowlers on good pitches:

    1. One of his best knocks was against Herath on a heavy turner in WI-SL-India tri series final.

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8...nation-series/

    2. Another one was against Starc (who took a 6fer that game) on a lively ODI pitch in Carlton series

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/1...dia-2nd-match/

    3. Another good knock was against SA where everyone else was struggling with Rohit scoring 150 at 100 SR (Dhoni too scored 30 odd at 100 SR but that's a misleading knock...Dhoni actually lost us the match - others did too one can say)

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/1...india-2015-16/

    4. Another one was in 4th ODI against England in Mohali where we chased down 257. It was a good pitch with the ball doing a bit.

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/5...-tour-of-India

    5. The most important knock of his career was WC QF vs Bangladesh where he scored a crucial 100 (the pitch wasn't a pancake and all batsmen except Raina failed)

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8...nal-world-cup/

    In all these 5 knocks, Kohli failed badly to give you an idea of how it wasn't easy.

    Other important knocks include his 200 in a decider match (7 match series) against Aus 2013 ODI series, his recent 200 in the 2nd ODI of SL series with the series on line, knocks in CT 2013, CT 2017 and more if I dig around.

    With that being said, this doesn't mean Rohit is some kind of clutch performer who can turn it on when the team needs him. The fact is inspite of all these heroics, Rohit doesn't inspire confidence.

    1. He bats too slow at the top (his 171 at 100 SR in MCG looks great on stats and has amazing shots but it wasn't a great knock in the match context where the pitch was a belter to the core).

    2. While he has good knocks, he predictably struggles against tough bowlers or tough situations (WC 2015 - failed in all important games except QF, CT 2013 final failed when we didn't have momentum on our side, CT 2017 failed again, Asia Cup swing track - failed, World T20 - fails when the heat is on)

    3. Not mentally strong as a batsman who doesn't usually tough it out. If it's a day where he is destined to do it, Rohit will uproot trees. Or else, he will fail. As a CSK fan, in a crunch situation against MI, I always used to back Rohit to fail and he used to do. That image hasn't yet been shaken off.

    That's why opinions are divided upon him.

    In a certain way, he is terribly under-rated when he is carrying the burden of Indian cricket ODI team along with Dhawan and Kohli (I include myself in this category).

    In other ways, he is terribly over-rated who is lucky to play in the era of the flattest ODI pitches with tons of opportunity to stat boost in tourneys against minnows (I just can't imagine him on 90s pitches against good bowlers....just can't picture him succeeding barring a few games cos he neither is mentally strong or is his game tight enough).

    Depending on the way you look at it, Rohit can be amazing (I still can't forget his Deccan Charger knocks) or he can be rubbish.

    Rohit is like the Donald Trump of batsmen.

    You either adore him or despise him.

    There is no middle ground.

    Rohit is definitely not an FTB. He has little bit of starting trouble especially against left arm bowlers who can angle the ball. But once he is in it doesn't matter left or right he can take anyone to cleaners. You have to give benefit of doubt to those who are not natural openers. On a true wicket when the ball comes on he can be a monster.

    I think you are going over the top . AB is the most destructive batsman in the world plus he can do it against top teams and doesnt have to play 100+ balls to get started. Rohit gets in the zone once in 70 -80 games while ab can get in the zone every 7-8 games

    Last 5 year record by different players against Australia who have been one of the top teams consistently. He has hit 57 sixes.

    AB also has had the luxury of coming in late in the innings to finish a better platform built by one of the best top orders in world cricket in recent years, while Rohit is a fundamental part of building THE best top order in world cricket.

    It's easy to slate Rohit for taking his time to set up the innings but isn't that part of his role? We'd slate him for immaturity if he went too aggressive early on in his innings, I think it's an unfair comparison to throw him in with someone who bats at 4 or 5.

    Fact is Rohit has proven his highest gear is as high as anyone, period.

    Rohit sharma is probably FTB.But calling him biggest FTB is wrong.He can play well on slow(like 5th odi IND vs NZ 2016) and even slightly bouncy pitches(like 79*(46) in 2010 t20WC or MCG ton).

    He is certainly Not one of my favourite player mainly because i don't find him as reliable batsmen.However,I can undertand if someone finds him entertaining.

    He is definitely the most destructive ODI opener

    Since he took up the role of opening in 2013...


    Name----Mat----Runs----Ave----Away----S/R---100s----Sixes
    Rohit-----87-----4428----57.5----52.7----92-----14----140
    Warner---65----3199----52.4----50------102----12----55
    Guptill----83----3377----46.9-----42------93-----10----95
    Amla-----94-----4160----46.8----39.8----88-----16----34
    Dhawan--91----3969----46.7----46.5-----94----12----51
    De Kock--85-----3722----47----38-------95-----13----54

    Only Warner comes close but Rohit trumps him in six hitting ability. 140 sixes jeez!

    he has the lazy Elegance and that Elegance will cost him to become an ATG.

    I forgot Dhoni as he is remembered more for his legacy as a captain, keeper and then batsmen all combined.Also, they dont match each other's era. So, yes Dhoni is obviously ahead of Sharmaji.

    He is the most clutch opener right now and with an extra gear nobody possesses.
