NEW DELHI: In the absence of big names like Virat Kohli and KL Rahul, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma leads his team from the front in the five-match Test series against England. Rohit smashed his second century of the series when he struck a brilliant 103 on Day 2 of the fifth Test in Dharamsala.
Rohit didn’t kick off the series on a positive note, managing scores of 24 and 39 in the first two innings of the first Test.This was followed by modest performances of 14 and 13 in the second match at Visakhapatnam.Rohit’s below par outing in the first two matches prompted former England batter Geoffrey Boycott to raise concerns on Indian captain’s ability, saying that he is past his best
Boycott expressed that at 37 years old, Rohit, having registered only two centuries in the past two years at home, appears to be finished in the format.
“Their captain Rohit Sharma is nearly 37 and past his best. He makes pretty cameos but has scored only two Test hundreds at home in four years,” Boycott had written in his column for The Telegraph.
But Boycott’s slamming Rohit did not go well with his fans and said he still has in him to dismantle any bowling attack in the world.
“Supporters of Rohit stop defending the indefensible he’s been a super batsman & still good but nobody gets better after age 36, we all decline in fitness reactions speed of thought endurance etc. doesn’t mean he can’t make runs but has to use all his experience to combat his age,” Boycott responded.
After Rohit’s second century of the series, supporters took to social media once more, engaging in trolling against Boycott for his critical comments about him.
