Rohit Sharma is not looking in his rhythm at the moment. (BCCI)
New Delhi: The Indian cricket team has to tour the West Indies next month. Team India will play a series of two Tests, three ODIs and five T20 matches on this tour. With this tour, Team India will start the next cycle of its ICC World Test Championship. This tour is also important for India because India has to play Asia Cup in September and then ODI World Cup in October-November and hence this tour also means a lot for the team captain Rohit Sharma.
This tour is very important for Rohit as a captain, as well as this tour is very important for him personally. Rohit is not in good rhythm at the moment. He was also failing in the final of the ICC World Test Championship. Even in the IPL-2023 played earlier, only two half-centuries came out of Rohit’s bat in 16 matches. His average in IPL was 20.75.

every match is important
In January this year, Rohit scored a century in the ODI against New Zealand in Indore. After this, in the first match of the four-match Test series played against Australia, Rohit scored a century in Nagpur. He scored this century in February. But since then Rohit’s bat has remained calm. Somehow he was able to score two half-centuries in IPL. But the whole season failed. In such a situation, the West Indies tour is a new opportunity for Rohit to return to his old rhythm before the Asia Cup and the World Cup. Rohit also knows this.

This series can be a kind of restart series for Rohit, in which Rohit can forget the past and enter the field with a new mission. It is also important for Rohit to make a fresh start. Learning from his experience, he should prepare to make India the world champion. For this, Rohit will have to pay attention to every match because there is not much time left for Asia Cup and World Cup.

Such are the figures in West Indies

However, Rohit’s strike rate is a matter of concern as it is only 72.40. Whereas in T20, Rohit has scored 185 runs in seven T20 matches at an average of 46.25. During this, his strike rate has been 145.66. Two half-centuries have also come out of Rohit’s bat.

Test Rohit has played only two in the West Indies, in which he has scored a total of 50 runs. If we look at the figures of limited overs, then these figures can be called good for Rohit and it also proves that Rohit can run here, just he has to improve his strike rate a little in ODIs. Rohit will also try his best to achieve his rhythm on this tour by taking every match seriously keeping in mind the preparation for the World Cup. West Indies can prove to be the right platform for Rohit to press the restart button.
