Cricket is a batsman’s game and especially in the last decade or so, there has been innumerous amount of pressure on the bowlers with the pitches going as flat as a highway and the introduction of 2 news balls in the one day internationals which meant that the art of reverse swing has gone completely out of the equation.
There is no cricketing action at present and the cricket fans who are supposed to be celebrating the pre IPL season has now been forced to immerse in a tragic scenario due to covid-19.
The ICC twitter handle tried his best to engage the cricket fans by asking for the fan’s opinion about the best puller of the cricket ball that includes all the past and present players.
India's limited overs vice captain and one of the modern day legend in Rohit Sharma is a terrific player of the short ball. He is the #2 ranked batsman in the ODIs just behind the greatest of all time in Virat Kohli.
The iconic front foot pull shot that Rohit Sharma plays with ease is one shot that can never be forgotten by any ardent cricket fan. The pull shot he plays is as good as anyone who have played this shot in the cricket history.
The hit-man who is well aware of his ability to play one of the best pull shot ever has quoted the ICC's tweet and replied in a cheeky manner.
The fans didn’t let go of this opportunity and thronged in to support their rockstar Rohit Sharma.

Over the years, the world has seen some eye-catching pullers of the ball in Ricky Ponting, Sir Viv Richards, Rahul Dravid, Jacques Kallis, Mahela Jayawardena etc but very few pull off front foot which is not an easy shot to execute.
