The former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar compared Indian opener Rohit Sharma with the former Indian opener Virender Sehwag. In fact, Akhtar believe that Rohit Sharma is better than the legendary opener Sehwag.
Akhtar said,”Rohit Sharma has a much better technique than Virender Sehwag. Sehwag just had a will and aggressive mindset to hit shots all across the park.”
“He (Rohit Sharma) has got great timing, a variety of shots and elegance. Earlier, he had less passion for Tests as he wanted to be a specialist batsman for all different formats. Now you an see when Rohit put this thought out of his mind, he scored a century,” he added.
