After hitting the third double century in the last match against Sri Lanka here on Mohali, Rohit Sharma reveals his batting secret.
Rohit Sharma set the stage on fire with his third double century in ODIs during the second match of the series against Sri Lanka. After that, he reveals his batting secret that he relies purely on timing to hit big shots.
The Indian opener hit 12 sixes and 13 fours in his 208 not out. And his second hundred came off just 36 balls.
Talking to the team’s chief coach Ravi Shastri in a video uploaded by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Rohit said he doesn’t possess power like Chris Gayle or MS Dhoni and backs his timing to clear the fence.
He also credited the team’s strength and conditioning coach Shankar Basu.”Thanks to our trainer Basu; he has been training really hard with all of us,” he added. India won the match by 141 runs to level the three-match series 1-1.
Shastri then asked the right-hander to pick the double century he thought is the best among the three he has hit now. He replied that it’s so difficult to pick one of these three because all three have come at crucial junctions of the game and at a crucial time, different scenarios of the game.
