Asia Cup: Rohit Sharma’s hitman form is not visible in T20 against Pakistan, record increasing headache

Dubai: Less than 15 days are left for the start of the Asia Cup of cricket. The Indian team will go down to defend the title under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. In 2018, when India won the tournament under Rohit’s captaincy, it was played in the ODI format. This time the matches will be in T20 format. Indian team is in strong form. Both the batsman and the bowler are doing amazing, but Rohit Sharma’s T20 record against Pakistan is a headache. India and Pakistan (IND vs PAK) are going to compete on 28 August.

average of only 14
Rohit Sharma is the highest run-scorer in T20 International cricket, but against Pakistan he has been a letdown. Has played 8 T20 International matches against Pakistan. In 7 innings of these matches, Rohit’s bat has scored 70 runs at an average of 14. His strike rate is 127.27. In the T20 World Cup match last year, Rohit was dismissed without opening an account against Pakistan. He ducked against Pakistan twice.

Important innings played in the World Cup final
Rohit Sharma has run his bat only once in a T20 match against Pakistan – in the final of the 2007 T20 World Cup. Rohit scored a crucial 30 runs in that match to take the team to 157 runs. He hit 2 fours and a six in this unbeaten innings of 16 balls. After that he has been able to score 2, 4*, 24, 0, 10, 0 runs. His record has increased the headache of the team as well as the fans.

Bat speaks fiercely in ODIs
Rohit Sharma’s bat speaks fiercely against Pakistan in ODI cricket. He has scored 720 runs against Pakistan in 16 ODIs played so far at an average of 51.42. During this, he has also scored 2 centuries and 6 half-centuries. Rohit played an innings of 140 runs against Pakistan in the 2019 World Cup. He also scored a century against Pakistan in the last Asia Cup. But his record in T20 is disappointing. Fans will expect Rohit to do better in the Asia Cup.
