    Scoring 50, 105, 32, 65, 26 does show consistency. You can’t expect any batsmen to get 50+ every innings.

    It doesn’t matter if you aren’t comparing Rohit with anyone. But if Rohit is inconsistent, then you have to name some batsmen who are consistent according to your criteria (unless there are none in the history of cricket).

    Mate you are missing my point. Rohit has immense postential and is a destructive batsman. But can you count on him to score 2 games in a row? History tells us no. Even if tomorrow he scores another century, it will be an aberration to his existing pattern. Even day before's game, his century didn't mean anything seeing that India lost.

    But that cannot define that he is inconsistent. Bro, any batsman should not be expected to perform in every game. Yes I agree with you with the score and this trend but still he is someone we can rely on to perform anywhere. And this surely even Rohit would want on to improve.

    Looks like you could not find a single consistent batsman according to your standards to compare.

    Thats a low blow.

    His logic:
    40, 30, 60, 30, 40 - Great player
    150, 7, 14, 170, 0, 95 - Inconsistent player

    You seriously have a hard time grasping the meaning of a word. Scoing 150 and then 7 is not consistent!!

    Lol by your genius logic scoring a 100 is a match winning performance. Ask your 'god' how many matches he won with his centuries

    If you had any mental strength Rohit 'consisttent' Sharma's 150 and 170 were in losing causes. Get back to me when once you've grown up a little

    Theory still stands as I mentioned a few posts earlier: "if he scores another century, it will be an aberration to his existing pattern". But none the less I am glad he has performed well today and I hope he can continue in this fashion.

    Can you make up a sample innings list (maybe 5 innings) of a player you would think is great and consistent?

    Williamson's last few innings: 47, 7, 39, 59, 12, 61
    Rohit's last few innigns: 150, 3, 65, 21, 16, 171*, 124

    Since Rohit has started opening, he has been very consistent. However, if your definition of consistent is that you can expect him to score a century every match, then he isn't consistent. But neither is any batsmen ever in cricket.

    As far as I know, Sangakkara was the only batsmen to score 4 consecutive ODI hundreds and 6 others had 3 consecutive ODI hundreds. So by your definition, is Sangakkara the only consistent batsmen ever? Even he did it only once, so maybe he wasn't always consistent according to your definition either?

    Or maybe you gave an example from the higher end of consistency. Maybe I should rephrase it. Can you make up a sample innings list of a player which has been achieved by several batsmen in the past and is the minimum you would think qualifies as consistent?

    I did give you an example of on the higher end, as that is the only series of scores in memory from recent times. Maybe I am harsh on Sharma, but I feel he can do a lot more and don't care for his lazy attitude. In a crunch situation even now, I would choose Smith, Root, Williamson, Kohli over Sharma, as I feel he won't deliver. Stats don't mean anything if the game isn't won.

    He averaged 44.50 this past world cup (a tournament where winning matter more than any other tournament). On the face of it that sounds decent. Out of the 3 test playing nations he played he scored 7 against WI, 16 against Zimbabwe and 34 against Aus. Not very impressive at all.

    Let's put it this way: you think Sharma is great based on his purple patch these last few years, which is fine. I think Sharma could do better seeing as he only shows us glimpses of his ability but doesn't always come through. We can always agree to disagree, which I'm fine with.

    With India's packed test schedule coming up it's going to be now or never for Rohit Sharma in terms of his test career. He's 29 and if he doesn't perform at home vs NZ and then England well he never will and should be discarded for good in test matches so that someone else can have a go. Pujara, Kohli, Rahane and Sharma need to start performing as a unit the way Dravid, Tendulkar, Ganguly and Laxman did for all those years.

    Where will rohit bat in the team? KL Rahul/Dhawan pujara kohli Rahane in the top 5. Kohli seems to favour 5 bowlers so Saha will bat six than. You think rohit will play as a 5th bowler than?

    Rohit should stay away from the test team. He hasn't done anything of note over the last few years in test cricket. He probably is the worst Indian bat in terms of performances over the last 3 years. At one point he was averaging below Bhuvi in tests in overseas games.

    Yep. He needs to focus on LOIs. Kohli seems to keep him around as he needs someone to accelerate if needed. Rohit is too flaky to survive let alone dominate in tests.

    Thats because the captain just loves him and wants him in the side. Rohit should not have been anywhere close to the test team after his disastrous performances in the overseas tours where even Jaddu and Bhuvi outperformed him. He could not even do well in the subcontinent.

    How much will Rohit Sharma score tomorrow?

    A) 0 (6) - out first ball, probably a nick to the keeper.

    B) 27 (33) - caresses five boundaries, but gets out to an airy fairy shot before REALLY getting set for the long haul.

    c) 51 (87) - unfortunately scores just enough to secure his place (and keep Rahane out) for the rest of the tour.

    d) 134 (186) - all is forgiven.

    Going with something resembling C though this performance by the rest will mean rahane is back for next game most likely for dhawan or could even go back to 7 batsman if we get a green track next game.

    Though I do hope that he scores some & we get a competitive game out of this but he will probably get out somewhere between 0 & 20. He'll not be able to create any impact in these conditions against this attack.

    He always looks good until he has bouts of stupidshotitis which has known to cause him to play really bad shots out of the blue leading to tame dismissals

    What a surprise. He'll most likely be picked for Test #2 and fail again.

    Poor Rahane will then be para-dropped in a thankless situation in the final test when we're 0-2 down but still score some runs.

    Guess who's the last one laughing? It ain't Sharma or Kohli.

    Rohit has not replaced Rahane.

    Whenever he's played Test cricket, he's batted below Rahane at No 6. It's the fabulous Pandya whom his team doesn't even trust to bat above Ashwin and Saha. So now we are supposed to believe:

    No 8 batsman + mediocre bowler = Rahane.

    Rohit is like VVS in test cricket. Let him bloom and he will give you knocks that even Kohli can never play, with lots of inconsistencies in between.

    Yeah, because VVS was stellar right from the get go

    VVS had an ordinary start to his career and failed through the 99 tour of Australia until the final innings where he left everyone gasping.

    Anyway, all the Rohit haters can keep complaining. With Kohli in charge of things, he will always be in the mix in all 3 formats

    Laxman had age on his side. Rohit is already 30+.

    He'll end up like Yuvraj or Raina - never make it big in test cricket but his friendship with the captain and coach will ensure that he'll ruin the careers of the likes of Rahane as well.

    I can understand people when they complained that Pujara was dropped by Kohli. He's the kind of player whom Kohli early into his captaincy didn't think fitted into the team he was trying to build. Think Kohli learnt a lesson in Sri Lanka that you can't fill the team with flair.

    But Rahane being dropped and blaming it all on Rohit seems absurd. Kohli has a lot of respect for Rahane and if he didn't pick him, there must be a good reason for it. Rahane will never be out of the mix for long.

    Pandya despite his innings today just doesn't seem a convincing choice in test cricket.

    300 sixes T20 format for Sharma!

    ===========

    Rohit Sharma on Friday, became the first Indian to hit 300 maximums in T20 cricket across all tournaments.

    Rohit hit a six off Mujeeb Ur Rahman in the 17th over to reach the landmark as Mumbai Indians beat Kings XI Punjab by six wickets at the Holkar Stadium in Indore to keep their playoff hopes alive.

    The Mumbaikar has hit 78 sixes in international cricket and 183 in the Indian Premier League so far. The remaining 40 have come in other T20 tournaments like Champions League T20, Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and others. In total, he has 301 sixes to his name.

    Chris Gayle (844) has hit the most sixes in the shortest format of the game. He is followed by Kieron Pollard (525), Brendon McCullum (445), Dwayne Smith (367), Shane Watson (357), David Warner (319) and Rohit (301).

    Gayle also leads the charts in IPL cricket, hitting 290 maximums. Rohit is second in the list with 183 to his name. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Suresh Raina have smashed 180 sixes each while AB de Villiers comes fifth with 179 maximums.

    Rohit has been in decent form this season, although his side has struggled to hit the ground running in IPL 2018. The Mumbaikar has slammed 220 runs from 9 matches so far, with his highest being 94 against RCB at the Wankhede Stadium earlier in the season. He has hit two fifties at an average of 31.42.

    The 31-year-old has 11 sixes and 21 boundaries this season so far.

    Rohit has slammed 4427 runs from 168 matches with one century so far in the IPL. His highest is 109 not out against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens.

    In the international arena, Rohit has scored 1852 runs from 79 matches at an average of 30.86. He has scored two hundreds and 14 fifties in T20Is. His highest is 118 against Sri Lanka at Indore in 2017.

    Mumbai however, have not been able to go off to a flyer they would have liked. After nine games, they have lost six and won three and are fifth on the points table.

    They have to win all their remaining five games to reach the playoffs. Not only that, teams above like KKR and around them like Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils will also have to lose their matches for MI to reach the top four.

    Rahul must not get ahead of Kohli. Kohli is the greatest no.3 ODI batsman of all time, he's not even 30 yet. No reason for Kohli to give up his spot. Rahul has to earn is place in top 3, just as Kohli did.

    Rahul is the man in that team now. Kohli has already expressed he's happy to take up the Bobby Deol job in this batting line up.

    Thing is, this is not about what Kohli wants, rather what India needs. If Kohli wants to bat at no.4 he'll be making a big mistake. It's not good to fix something that's not broken.

    Rohit is a beast in flat tracks.He however has a weaknesss while facing quality left arm pace especially at the start of his innings or while facing quality seam bowling in a seaming pitch.

    But 95% of today's white ball cricket is being played in flat tracks these days and he is just BOSS in these conditions.

    I remember when he started opening for India he was averaging under 30. Now he averages 45! Beat that..

    He also went past quite a few greats along the way. With 20 tons in ODI cricket he has now gone past Lara, Jayawerdne, Anwar and Taylor.

    11th on the overall list having played 2nd fewest matches after Amla.

    Sharma should aim for 10-15 more.

    Imagine India holding top 3 spots in the centuries count.

    Not really. This is just an impression that has been created because of Indo-Pak matches and Amir. And if I'm not wrong Amir has gotten Rohit out only twice, anway.

    He's also scored 91 in CT 17 against Pak in the group match and we saw what he did in the Asia Cup.

    In addition to that I've seen him score hundreds against Starc and Johnson in Australia and I've seen him score a hundred against Boult - all left-arm pacers who are leagues ahead of Amir.

    Rohit Sharma is one of the most over-analyzed batsman on PP and it's totally unneccesary.

    Way underrated player in short formats. Has avg of 62 & has 17 centuries in last 5 years. Only Virat has better avg of 68 with 20 centuries. If Rohit would have been playing for other side then he would have been considered as competition to virat in short formats.

    The guy who gets shortchanged the most in all of this is Dhawan. In the last 3 years he has scored 2000+ runs at an avg of 52 and SR of 102.

    If Dhawan was in any other ODI team, he would be, at worst, the 2nd best batsman in that team. And apart from Aus and SA, he would be the best batsman in the side for all other teams.
