Star India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, in a chat on his YouTube channel, revealed an fascinating dialogue dated 5-6 years again with modern-day nice Virat Kohli when the latter requested him about who do you assume is a captain’s nightmare on the dying.When I replied, Is it MS Dhoni? Kohli mentioned, ‘No, it’s Rohit Sharma’.
“Virat and I had a discussion while Rohit was batting. I don’t remember which match it was. Seeing Rohit bat, I was thinking, “Where do you even bowl to him? If Rohit is ready after 15-20 overs, you would not know the place to bowl to him.
“Virat asked me, Do you know who is a captain’s nightmare at the death? I asked, “Is it Dhoni?” Kohli was like, “No, it’s Rohit.” When I asked him why, he said you won’t know where to bowl,” Ashwin revealed on his YouTube channel.
Ashwin additionally elaborated on the challenges of bowling to Rohit in the course of the dying overs, emphasising that it’s a formidable job on account of his big range of pictures and distinctive batting abilities.
“If Rohit is batting at the end of the 16th over in a T20, where will you bowl? He has got all the shots in the book, and once he played an extraordinary knock in Chinnaswamy stadium that Kohli can never forget, it seems. Rohit has got all the shots, and he makes it look so effortless and easy,” mentioned the veteran India off-spinner.
