Rohit Sharma’s sweetest feeling: In less than a few hours, India will be locking horns with Sri Lanka in the opening ODI of the tournament while another squad of India awaits patiently to kick off their campaign in the second edition of the World Test Championship.
While Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar lead India in Sri Lanka, Virat Kohli will be the captain for India leading their Test team against England. With a major quandary about India’s opening slots in England after Shubman Gill copped an injury, the man to whom the others will be looking forward to is Rohit Sharma.
India’s leading run-scorer in the World Test Championship, Rohit Sharma has shown some strident consistency in the last few Tests that he has been a part of. He has consistently delivered against Australia and England in back to back series.
He even managed to belt a boisterous century against the formidable English bowling line-up, helping India to salvage a clinical victory against the likes of the mighty Britons.
He will be heavily tested against the bowling of England, especially under English circumstances with the ball swinging emphatically. However, his performance against New Zealand in the WTC final exhibited intermittent sparks of brilliance only to be snuffed out shortly.

Rohit Sharma’s sweetest feeling in cricket
Sharma has been practicing relentlessly to execute perfection while England challenges the mighty Indians.
The Indian vice-captain of the shorter formats of the game, Sharma recently took to Twitter in order to post a collage of two pictures of himself, playing a sweep in one while defending in another.
He captioned it saying that the feeling of the bat in your hand and the ball smiting the middle of the bat is altogether a heavenly one.
Being avid cricket zealots, we are all aware of the beautiful feeling when there is a sweet sound of the ball hammering the middle of the bat. Sharma will have to middle a lot of deliveries if India needs to challenge England in their backyard.
