"Artistry distinguishes Rohit Sharma": Sanjay Manjrekar's candid assessment of the India captain's outstanding shot against England

“Artistry distinguishes Rohit Sharma”: Sanjay Manjrekar’s candid assessment of the India captain’s outstanding shot against England. After veteran opener Rohit Sharma produced a captain’s knock to help the ICC World Cup hosts thrash defending champions England by 100 runs on Sunday, former India batter Sanjay Manjrekar had nothing but admiration for the veteran batsman. 

Rohit missed out on smashing the 32nd century, but his 54th One Day International (ODI) half-century was enough to guarantee India’s easy victory over Jos Buttler and company at Lucknow’s Ekana Cricket Stadium.

Against England in Lucknow, India’s captain Rohit Sharma scored a magnificent 87 from 101 balls, launching 10 fours and three sixes. On a challenging Lucknow pitch, Rohit’s 87-run innings and Suryakumar’s 49 from 47 balls helped India to 229-9.

Ex-cricketer Manjrekar believes that India captain Rohit led the hosts to a historic victory by producing one of the finest innings in ODI cricket history, even if England’s hitters found it difficult to get going in Lucknow.

“The three double hundreds and his most recent fast century are the first things that come to mind when discussing Rohit Sharma’s ODI batting prowess and magnificence. But in my opinion, this knock ranks among the best in an ODI innings. 

There are two or three reasons for that: India was under pressure, the afternoon pitch was a little tricky, the bowling challenge was excellent, and Jos Buttler employed excellent tactics,” Manjrekar said Star Sports.

You might recall a shot he made, off the bowling of Adil Rashid, I believe. There was a very small gap, and he produced a powerful drive to reach the boundary. Then, in opposition to the turn, he hit Moeen Ali over mid-off. 

Rohit Sharma is unique because of his artistry. Not just Rohit is at the top; six or seven Indian players are as well. We discuss the generational divide, but Manjrekar continued, “There is a significant gap presently between Indian cricket and the cricket of other teams.
