Hyderabad: On a pitch where England batsmen struggled to score runs in the third Test in Motera, Indian opener Rohit Sharma showed his class with an unbeaten half-century on the first day.
Former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman was mighty impressed with the hitman’s knock and said the opener had come out with a plan and implemented it perfectly. “The way he shows confidence on his formula in one-day cricket, I feel in the same way he scored a big hundred in the second Test in Chennai in tough conditions and here also he came with a game plan and showed confidence in that,” said Laxman.
“He was playing the drive when the ball was pitched full but he respected and played defensively against good-length deliveries. We know he plays an amazing pull shot and back-foot punch against short-pitched deliveries. So, if you show confidence in your game plan, you will continue to perform consistently. It shows he values his wicket and the discipline that is expected from an experienced player was seen,” added Laxman.
