New Delhi. Currently, Team India’s 35-year-old captain Rohit Sharma and 33-year-old former captain Virat Kohli are compared among the greatest batsmen. As long as these two batsmen are present at the crease, the bowlers of the opposition team keep going up and down. Both these batsmen have the ability to groom the innings even in adverse conditions. However, Imam-ul-Haq, the 26-year-old opener of the Pakistan cricket team, feels that Rohit Sharma has got talent in abundance and perhaps Virat Kohli does not have that much talent.
The Pakistani batsman said, ‘I think the talent that Allah has given to Rohit, maybe not as much to Kohli. I have seen both these batsmen play, but the way Rohit plays it looks like he is batting in replays. Rohit has a lot of time. For the first time I have understood the timing, because on most of the occasions I field on point.
Imam further said, ‘Kohli has also batted in front of me many times. But Allah has given Sharma a lot of time. He is the kind of player who can change the course of the game in an instant. When he is set, he shoots of his own free will.
Let us tell you that both Rohit and Kohli are currently on a tour of England. Kohli could not take the field due to injury in the first ODI against the hosts. But Sharma played an unbeaten half-century of 76 runs while adding color to the field. During this, seven fours and five excellent sixes also came from his bat.
