Hitting Coach Impressed By Rohit Sharma’s Brilliant Performance, Said What’s His Greatest Quality

India batting coach Vikram Rathour praised captain Rohit Sharma on Friday for scoring a brilliant century off a substitution pitch against a formidable Australian attack and leading the team to the top. Rohit batted for 345 minutes on a slow, shifting pitch against a brilliant attack from bowlers such as Nathan Lyon and Pat Cummins and scored a brilliant 120 runs. Rohit’s century, an 81-run partnership for the eighth wicket between Ravindra Jadeja and Akshar Patel helped India take the lead. He hit 321/7 at the end of the day’s game and took a 144-run first innings lead against Australia.

Batting coach Rathour said it was Rohit’s level and ability to adapt to conditions and change his batting style that helped him succeed in Nagpur. The first star game got off to a very aggressive start on Thursday. He completed his half century on 66 balls. Following this, he faced 105 balls to score a century.

He said: “I think that’s the quality he has as a hitter. He really does it right. He is someone who can change his game. You know how he performs in India and how he scored runs in the series against South Africa.

Rathore said at the post-game press conference on Friday that we then traveled to England. It was a completely different field that you had to play in. And today, it was not an easy wicket. He had to work hard to score runs. He generally charges after scoring the opening runs. He really likes to move.

Asked if India had put pressure on Australia by scoring 95 runs in the final session of the day, Rathour said that for them the match ends only when the last ball is bowled.

Asked if Akshar Patel’s batting skills were considered before Kuldeep Yadav in choosing him, Rathour said, “As a bowler, you have to have good records in India (to be selected) so I don’t.” His hitting is definitely an asset. It’s great that if he can bat too, it will be beneficial for India. But as a bowler I think he has taken over 40 wickets in six, six or seven matches.
