Then Rohit got out for playing a pull shot.
Indian captain Rohit Sharma’s favorite shot is the pull shot. They score runs fiercely on it, but for some time now Rohit has been getting out constantly trying to pull or hook the ball. The same thing happened in this match as well. Rohit Sharma was set on the pitch, but Roman Walker got out trying to pull the ball. His bat scored 25 runs in 47 balls with the help of three fours.
strength becomes weakness
Rohit Sharma is counted among the best pullers in international cricket history. He can play a pull shot from mid on to line leg. Sometimes he pulls the ball from the front foot, but in this effort he has been getting out continuously for some time, especially in Test matches. In Tests from January 2018 to March 2022, Rohit took 22 catches out of which 7 times he was trying to pull or hook the ball. During this, he has scored runs on this shot at a strike rate of 223, but his average is only 27.
English team will also make weapons
England team can attack Rohit Sharma with short ball. He can’t stop himself from playing shots. Sometimes the ball is needed outside the boundary, but even after hitting the boundary in a Test match, bowlers continue to bowl Rohit to take wickets. Even on the last England tour, Mark Wood had trapped Rohit on a bouncer. Even after scoring a century at the Oval, Rohit was out in the pull shot.
