Rohit Sharma is in the XI because of his batting: Saba Karim 

While the buzz continues to grow around Rohit Sharma’s leadership traits, former Indian cricketer Saba Karim has pointed out that the 34-year-old cricketer is primarily in the side because of his batting and should not lose focus from the same.

Karim is concerned with this patch of form and while speaking on the ‘Khelneeti’ podcast, he said that things are only going to get tougher in the future so he should brace himself for it.

“Rohit Sharma is in the XI because of his batting. Captaincy is an additional responsibility. He should not lose focus with regards to batting. Lot of times we have seen that captains are not able to perform as well in their primary skill. This should not happen,” the former cricketer said.

“This is just the starting phase for Rohit Sharma. He will gradually realize how important his runs are for the team. His performance will be crucial in Australia (during the T20 World Cup), where the grounds are big and the opposition have top-quality bowlers. So yes, Rohit Sharma needs to work on this area,” explained Karim.

Rohit Sharma will be next seen in action during the two-match Test series which will be his first assignment after being appointed India’s Test captain.
