Probably one of the best timers of the cricket ball, he had been stated as one of the most fluent batsmen to watch live by many legends. But Rohit Sharma on his latest Instagram Q&A session named two overseas players as the batsmen that he loves to watch the most.
Rohit Sharma just like any other cricketer has been forced to spend his time behind the comfort zone of four walls as the entire world had been in lockdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The talented batsmen however made use of this time to connect with his millions of fans. He gave them a chance to ask him as many questions as they want and promised to answer most of them in the stipulated time of 24 hours. Fans were quick to respond to it and various questions ranging from his personal life, cricket career, and his views on the future of cricket were asked.
During this Q&A session, one of his fans asked him to name the batsman that he enjoys watching the most. While the most popular choice would have been his captain Virat Kohli, he decided to name the modern-day Aussie legend Steve Smith and English opener Jason Roy as the two batsmen he enjoys watching the most.
The modern-day Don and Destructor
Smith was at his peak during the recently concluded Ashes series, which even drew comparisons of him with the great Sir Don Bradman. He was untouchable in test cricket and had stayed at the number one spot for quite a long time.
Jason Roy on the other hand had been a revelation in white-ball cricket. It was his heroics at the early part of the innings that gave the England side an edge over other teams in the recently concluded ICC World Cup.
Smith has so far played 73 Tests and has scored 7,227 runs at an astonishing average of 62.84. Similarly, in ODIs, he has accumulated 4,162 runs in 125 games. Roy, on the other hand, has scored 3,434 runs in 87 ODIs, 860 runs in 35 T20Is.
