Jason Roy, one of the England team’s stars openers, believes that if he has to choose who would be his opening partner in a cricket career, he will opt between Indian opener Rohit Sharma or Australia’s David Warner. Let me tell, in the ICC World Cup played last year, both the batsmen were in excellent form.
In an interview to a cricket website, Jason Roy said, ‘Whatever I thought about the World Cup final in my childhood, it happened in the 2019 World Cup final. People were cheering for you, that was a great thing. Once you get on the field, it seems like it is just another game. I had not seen this match after this, last month when it was being shown on TV, only then I saw it.”
Rohit’s cricket career
It may be noted that Rohit has so far scored 2141 runs in 32 Tests for Team India with the help of 6 centuries and 10 half-centuries, 9115 runs in 224 ODIs and 43 half-centuries and 29 tons and has notched up 4 centuries in 108 T20 Internationals, 21 half-centuries. Has scored 2273 runs. Rohit is counted among the best openers of limited-overs cricket. He is the only batsman in the world to score three double centuries in ODI cricket. In the World Cup 2019, he scored the maximum 648 runs with the help of a record 5 centuries.
David Warner’s class
Warner, who has played 84 Tests, 123 ODIs and 79 T20 Internationals so far in his cricketing career, has already said that the T20 World Cup will be a difficult task in view of the number of teams. He said that all are waiting for the decision of the ICC in this matter.
