Indian cricket is currently witnessing a spectacular show of form from its captain, Rohit Sharma, and the batting maestro, Virat Kohli, as they prepare for the eagerly anticipated ODI World Cup 2023, set to take place in India during the months of October and November. Both these batsmen have been delivering remarkable performances in the ongoing Asia Cup 2023, fueling excitement and anticipation among cricket enthusiasts.

Rohit Sharma has been a standout performer, impressively notching up three consecutive half-centuries, showcasing his exceptional form and insatiable hunger for runs. On the other hand, Virat Kohli left cricket fans in awe with his outstanding century against arch-rivals Pakistan.

The remarkable form of these Indian cricketing icons has also caught the attention of England’s batting maestro, Joe Root. In an interview with the Times Of India, Root lauded the prowess of Kohli and Rohit and emphasized the folly of underestimating these cricketing giants as they gear up for the upcoming marquee tournament.

Root elaborated on his viewpoint, stating, “It’s perilous to prematurely write off players like Virat and Rohit due to their age. Consider the likes of Chris Gayle, who extended his T20 cricket career significantly. Many of the world’s finest cricketers have prolonged their careers, especially in the T20 format, delivering consistently outstanding performances. If you are physically fit and still possess the passion, there’s no reason not to continue playing.”

Expanding on his argument, Root drew a parallel with England’s premier fast bowler, James Anderson, highlighting the extraordinary performances of the seasoned cricketer despite his age. Root noted, “Take Jimmy Anderson as a prime example. He’s well into his 40s, yet he continues to perform exceptionally well. We are fortunate that we didn’t prematurely discount his abilities based on his age. He remains a cornerstone of our team, leading our bowling attack with his wealth of experience and skill. We recognize his exceptional talent and consider him an outstanding player in his own right.”
