Unthinkable scenarios: Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli’s potential struggle in semi-finals against NZ



The audience is ready to watch the ODI World Cup semi-finals between India and New Zealand. Fans are excited to see the performance of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Millions of cricket fans are eagerly awaiting the big semi-final between India and New Zealand at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. There is a lot of anticipation around the Men in Blue’s strategy for the crucial game, particularly whether India captain Rohit Sharma will adopt the same aggressive brand of cricket that has seen him opt for aggressive batting from the first ball in this World Cup. Rohit Sharma has provided India with good starts in seven out of nine games, scoring 503 runs at an impressive strike rate of 121.49, making it easier for the rest of the batters to follow. He has hit 60 sixes in this World Cup and has not been shy in taking on the bowlers. Similarly, Virat Kohli has been in great form, scoring 594 runs at an average of 99, and both these Indian stars have been the main scorers for Team India. When Rohit Sharma has failed, Virat Kohli has stepped up and vice versa. However, the track record of Rohit Sharma in knockout rounds is a concern, as he has struggled in previous high-pressure games. Former Indian cricketer Zaheer Khan has emphasized the need for India to have a Plan B or C in such a scenario. Despite these concerns, Indian supporters will be hopeful that the momentum will continue and India will advance to the finals.
