Rohit Sharma

Muttiah Muralitharan has voiced his endorsement for Rohit Sharma’s inclusion in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, citing the impressive strike rate he displayed in the ICC World Cup 2023 as evidence of his suitability for the shortest format. Rohit Sharma has been absent from T20 Internationals since India’s defeat to England in the semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.

Speaking on Jio Cinema, Muralitharan commended Rohit’s aggressive batting in the ICC ODI World Cup, where he consistently provided strong starts for the Indian team. Acknowledging Rohit’s age of 36, Muralitharan suggested that with a commitment to fitness similar to Virat Kohli, Rohit has the potential to participate in another World Cup.

Muralitharan downplayed the importance of a high strike rate in T20 cricket, emphasizing the greater significance of fitness and overall team performance. He expressed confidence that Rohit, boasting a commendable strike rate of 130 in the ODI World Cup, possesses the skills and dedication to be part of another global tournament.

With an impressive record of 3853 runs in 148 T20Is, including four centuries and 29 fifties, and a stellar IPL performance for Mumbai Indians (MI) amassing 6211 runs in 243 matches, Rohit’s wealth of experience and aggressive batting style positions him as a potentially vital asset for India in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
