    This. But the problem is South Africa will smash us in the tests as well.

    There's only so far we can get with a 'decent' (and nothing more) team.

    He is one of the dozen other batsmen who were mediocre/good in the 2000's and suddenly turned into a beast batsman in the 2010's like Taylor, Sanga etc. Even Raina destroyed England in England recently. He will come through on this front soon.

    He is about to overshadow Kohli. Provided he has a good Test series especially. I think he will have a terrific Test series.

    I t think we should play him in Tests as well. Now I've said the opposite in the past but these are home tests and Rohit gas only played two tests at home two years and our batting stocks are poor in Tests. Might be worth it looking at his form.

    He will play home tests and he should.
    Overseas tests he shouldn't, atleast not for the time being.

    Only current Indian batsman that can play crucial innings.
    Has to improve on a lot of things but still India's best batsman as I have stated.
    Will rarely scored soft, needless runs like Kohli did in Australia and often does or like Dhoni is doing for the last 7 years of his career.

    Which is the point. Kohli isnt in form.
    However, rohit has more ability than kohli.
    He still hasnt reached his peak yet, unlike kohli who may already be past his best
    The way he plays fast bowlers is really distinct from anybody else. I still remember the way he played Mitchell Starc in the World Cup semi final.
    driving, pulling him effortlessly when the guy was bowling at 150 clix.
    Yeah he only scored a 40 something but the quality of shots was unmatched

    Plus u still maintain a hope of him turning a corner n becoming an imposing batsman, hence the dig at u

    Kohli has a better temperament and more intelligence. There is no doubt regarding Rohit's talent. Same as Umar. Lately he has been harnessing the talent and has become better, but there is still simply too much inconsistency. This SA series might be what makes him though, because he has done exceedingly well each time, but before that you could always count on him to deliver a few low scores. He is also yet to make much of an impression in differing conditions, which is what puts his contemporaries above him in my book. Just an opinion though.

    With rohit I don't think there's a question of intelligence or temperament because he does not have the issues that khotta has.
    You can realize the intelligence of the guy from the interviews where he shows a good understanding of his game

    Plus, when you see him bat he usually goes for calculated strokes, unlike chota who is like a restless bee, prone to a hack across the line any moment.

    With rohit, u feel that it was just a coincidence or just a weird spate of events that did not allow him to be the batsman that he was supposed to be.
    Maybe he doubted himself

    But thankfully, he is realizing how good he is now and the confidence just shows, the way he approaches the game.

    I don't think Rohit was ever as immature as Umar (who is on a different planet in that regard), but there was a time when he was not very intelligent with the way he went about his batting. However, opening the innings and captaining Mumbai, etc. have all forced him to take more responsibility and thus show more capability as an overall cricketer.

    I wish that Umar would also learn, but he seems like a hopeless case.

    I wish that Umar would also learn, but he seems like a hopeless case.
    Umar has got his priorities n his mentors wrong.

    Rohit is the most dangerous ODI opener in the game. I'd take him over Amla any time, who is all stats and no substance.

    If you don't get Rohit out in the first 15 overs and he will more often than not take the game well beyond your reach, also he can switch gears like no one else can.

    Plus, he is the most pleasing batsman to watch in my book, especially against fast bowlers.

    World record holder

    Overall 2 double hundreds

    171

    150s

    140s


    He is a legitimate beast in ODIs. Probably the most dangerous batsman after ABD in limited overs cricket right now. ABD does it from middle overs onwards but Rohit to his credit stamps his authority as an opener.

    This!

    Rohit Sharma lacks the consistency to score runs. And thats why i think he would never become a better player then Tendulkar or Dravid, even if he scores two more 150+

    What does this have to do with consistency? He has high avg because when he scores a 100, he scores a big one. But he is not able to show a similar performance in almost every match, or atleast 3 out of 5 matches.

    Certainly has the talent as a batsmen in ODIs as you only have to look at the Big inns hes scored in this format of the game, but then he seems to struggle majorly in Tests which is abit of surprise. Also seems to enjoy playing Australia.

    Such stupid logic.

    Inconsistency is the absence of big knocks not the presence of low scores. Rohit has in fact the ideal ODI run. He's striking big in every 3-4th game and making them count. If you have this ****** logic for inconsistency go and find it in Lara's test career as well. Massive double hundreds and a lot of nothing efforts. Hardly anyone bothers. It's about making the 1/4 knocks count big.

    QFT.

    Every time I see or hear about him performing these kinds of innings I always look passed them because I know he won't be able to duplicate it in the next match.

    Do you even know what consistency means??? You seem to have a hard time understanding the word.
    Let me break it down for you:

    Scenario 1 Average of 50:
    Innings 1: score of 100
    Innings 2: Score of 0

    Scenario 2 Average of 50:
    Innings 1: Score of 50
    Innings 2: Score of 50

    Now please tell me how scenario 1is a consistent player. No one here is comparing Lara to this guy. Just because he scores big hundreds dosn't mean he is consistent. It just means he has the talent to do so. I would refer you to a dictionary of you still don't understand.

    Let me explain to you, Chhotu,

    Scenario 1 is a clear cut superior player. He hits 100 in 1/2 matches, most probably wins the game for his tea,

    Scenario 2, couple of 50s. Odds of ending on the winning side contribution wise exactly half to the hundred scored.

    Scenario 1= Consistent match winner

    Scenario 2 = Consistent performer

    you can see how very inconsistent he is.

    He's played 18 odis since 2015 and has 4 x 100s, and 4 x 50+ scores. So he's made a significant contribution once every 2.25 matches which is reasonably consistant in most people's books.

    In 2014 he played 12 odis and scored 1 x 100 and 3 x 50s so scored big in 1/3 matches.

    In 2013 he played 28 odis and scored 2 x 100s and 8 x 50s.

    That's quite a large sample.

    Sharma is clearly a poor test match batsman (so far) but I don't think he's 'very inconsistant' - not anymore and not in the shorter format of the game.

    Weak lower order means the plan is to not take much risks in the middle overs. Smith & Bailey could bat freely knowing they had Maxwell, Marsh, Wade, Faulkner in the shed.

    I don't see the inconsistency in those innings. He usually gets between 30-60 runs and sometimes gets big hundreds. If this isn't consistent in ODIs, then please show me the innings list of a player who is consistent according to you. Even Sachin or Viv did not get 40+ runs every single match.

    What else do you call consistency mate? In 57 innings he has scored 50 plus in 22 innings.... which means he scores more than 50 in 44% of matches he plays. that is near about every 2nd or 3rd game he plays. What else do you want from an opener...

    Is 40 a good score? Then name a batsmen who gets above 40 almost every innings. Rohit has gotten over 40 around 45% of times (and over 50 around 39% of times).

    What I want from an opener is not be content with his score in the previous game and play like a fool in the next. Not just an opener, any bastman for that matter.

    After he scored his 150 (in a losing match), he scored a whopping 3. After a 60+ score in Bangladesh he gets out for a duck. After his 264 he gets out for 9. After 138 he gets out for 15. You can see a trend with his batting here. He knows he has the talent, but rests on his previous laurels.

    I don't need to name anyone, seeing as I'm not comparing King Rohit with anyone. If you think 30 is a good score, great. India's win/loss record in the last year is testament to that sort of benchmark.

    After Viv got 138*, he got 9 the next match. Then he got 149 in another match, and 23 the next match. Later he got 106, and 18 in the next one. Then 189* in another match and 3 after. I guess Viv wasn’t very consistent either. http://www.howstat.com/cricket/stati...?PlayerID=1470
