Former India all-rounder Reetinder Singh Sodhi believes Rohit Sharma has stamped his authority in Tests and rates him as the best batsman in the world right now. Rohit has been opening on a regular basis for India since 2019 and has gone on to score 1,094 runs at 60.77 in that position so far, which includes as many as four centuries with the best of 212.
Rohit was part of the World Test Championship (WTC) final which India lost to New Zealand in Southampton. Rohit got starts in both innings, but could not convert that into anything substantial, which was one of the reasons behind India's loss in the summit clash.
Speaking of the upcoming Test series against England, Sodhi on India News said, "A lot here depends on Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Cheteshwar Pujara - how these three batsmen catch form in the upcoming series. We all know that, in his elegance, Rohit Sharma is the best batsman in the world."
"He was definitely struggling in Test cricket if we talk about sometime back but now he has stamped his authority in Test cricket. He is a special player as an opener, when he plays he can take the match away for the opposition in a matter of moments," the former all-rounder added.
India and England clash in a five-match Test series, starting August 4 at Trent Bridge. India were thrashed 4-1 the last time they toured England in 2018.
