Rohit Sharma’s lackluster performance in the second T20I against Afghanistan at the Holkar Cricket Stadium has raised concerns about his form. After being dismissed for a duck in the first match, he suffered a similar fate in the second T20I, leading to questions about his shot selection. Aakash Chopra criticized Rohit in a YouTube video, highlighting that the skipper is yet to score a single run in the series.
Chopra pointed out the need for Rohit to find form, especially with the T20 World Cup 2024 approaching, expressing confidence that Rohit would regain his touch during the IPL.
As the competition for the opening spot intensifies, with the T20 World Cup on the horizon, Rohit faces challenges from emerging talents like Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and others. In the same match, Virat Kohli made his T20I comeback after 14 months, adopting an aggressive approach and scoring a brisk 29 off 16 balls before falling to Naveen-ul-Haq.
