Skipper Rohit Sharma led from front and others followed. India’s explosive batting at the second T20 in Indore on Friday ensured that the home team emerged a 2-0 winner in the 3-match T20 Series against Sri Lanka. India  had similarly won at Cuttack 2 days ago. Though Sunday’s game at Mumbai is the last fixture […]

Rohit Sharma is a mystery. He can abandon you wonderstruck with his gifted shots and confused about his express indiscretion. His irregularity may have brought on a ton of open deliberation, yet his ability has never been addressed. Rohit is extremely talented. It is a pleasure to watch him stroke the ball to the limit […]

Perth Script Repeated at Gabba as Rohit’s Century Fails to Fetch Victory for India in 2nd ODI

 January 16, 2016   R K Gupta

, , , , , ,

In a strange and coincidental quirk of fate, India lost another ODI after posting 300-plus, which again included a fine century by Rohit Sharma. Gabba’s second ODI was pretty much like the one at WACA, where Rohit’s good work proved to be of no avail. Other similarities were; India winning the toss, choosing to bat […]

 January 13, 2016   R K Gupta

, , , , , ,

After making 309/3 on a batting-friendly WACA pitch at Perth, India lost to the Aussies by 5 wickets in the first of the five ODIs scheduled for their ongoing tour down under.

Mumbai Win Another Match to Stay Alive in 2015 IPL

 May 15, 2015   R K Gupta

Mumbai might have won against KKR in a thrilling contest at the Wankhede Stadium but their batting weakness in the first 12 overs was a repeat script of their several earlier innings. When Rohit Sharma was foxed by a straight ball from Sunil Narine, Mumbai were pathetically placed at 79/4 and that did not inspire […]

When Sunny Gavsakar made the pitch inspection on first day morning at SCG, he predicted that the wicket was full of runs.

Rohit Sharma announced his return to the India side in storming fashion. After a nervy start, he first took control of himself and then controlled the entire match. In the process, he emerged as ODI history’s highest run-getter with 264 runs, leaving Virender Sehwag 45 runs behind. The sledge-hammer batting from Sharma completely demoralized Sri […]
