Indian Cricket Icon Queries Rohit Sharma’s Strategy in 2023 World Cup Championship Match



Throughout the entire World Cup 2023, Sharma’s strategy has been to give India an aggressive start at the beginning of the innings. Despite winning 10 consecutive matches, the Indian cricket team returned empty-handed from the Cricket World Cup 2023 final, suffering a 6-wicket defeat against Australia. Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian team, provided a blazing start at the top of the batting order with another quick-fire performance. However, Sunil Gavaskar, a revered Indian cricket legend, has raised concerns about Sharma’s approach, questioning whether the skipper’s ambition got the better of him when he was dismissed on the final ball of the first powerplay while taking on Glenn Maxwell. After Rohit’s departure, Virat Kohli continued to rotate the strike, scoring a half-century, while forming a crucial partnership with KL Rahul. However, Kohli’s dismissal by Pat Cummins resulted in a significant decline in India’s boundary count. The batters faced difficulties in even hitting Australia’s part-time bowlers, causing a noticeable slowdown in their scoring rate.
