Pakistan’s opener: “Talent Allah Has Given to Rohit Sharma, He Hasn’t Given to Virat Kohli Perhaps”
The opposition cannot relax till both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are at the crease since they are two of the best batsmen in the current era. The two are the key players in the Indian batting order, and on their best days, they can both score runs at their own pace and will. Imam-ul-Haq, the opening batsman for Pakistan, believes that Virat Kohli may not possess the same level of talent as Rohit Sharma has.
“I feel that the amount of talent Allah has given to Rohit Sharma, he has not given it to Virat Kohli perhaps. I have seen both of them bat, it seems like Rohit is batting in a replay. He has a lot of time. The first time I realised the true meaning of timing because I mostly field at point and I get to know. Virat Kohli has batted in front of me, so has Rohit Sharma but Rohit has been gifted a lot of time by Allah,” Imam said on SAMAA News.”He is one player who can change the game in two seconds. When he is set, he can hit at will. My wish is to give as influential performances like Rohit. If I play that style of cricket for Pakistan, I would be very happy,” he added.
In the recent ODI series between India and England, Rohit Sharma was at the top of his game, scoring an unbeaten 76 in the first game to assist his team win by 10 wickets.
However, Virat Kohli missed the opening ODI because of a minor groyne complaint. Virat’s performance has been declining, as he last reached a century on the international stage in 2019. At Lord’s Cricket Stadium on Thursday, the second ODI between India and England will take place.
