Rohit Sharma’s career took a turn when M.S. Dhoni asked him to open for India in the 2013 Champions Trophy
Mumbai : Rohit Sharma's career took a turn when M.S. Dhoni asked him to open for India in the 2013 Champions Trophy.
From being a talented youngster, he became a performer and former India chief selector Kris Srikkanth believes that the limited-overs deputy is one of the best in the business.
Speaking on Star Sports show Cricket Connected, Srikkanth heaped praise on RohitSharma, "I think I would rate him as one of the greatest all-time one-day openers in world cricket.
What's the greatest quality Rohit Sharma is that he goes for these big hundreds and double hundreds, that is something amazing.
In a one-day cricket match, you will go 150, 180, 200, just imagine where you are going to take the team to, that's the greatness about Rohit Sharma.
He is definitely, probably is in the top 3 or 5 all-time greatest openers as far as one-day cricket is concerned."
Former teammate IrfanPathan had earlier said that there has always been more to the stylish opener than just talent.
