World Cup 2019: Rohit Sharma’s Brilliance Is Also Helping Opening Partners Perform Says Sanjay Bhanger

Rohit Sharma scored 103 against Sri Lanka in India’s seven-wicket victory at Headingley, and that win, combined with Australia’s defeat to South Africa, has helped India top the table.

Rohit Sharma is in the form of his life with a record fifth century in the ongoing World Cup, but India batting coach Sanjay Bangar feels his batting has also helped and allowed opening partners to take time and perform.

Rohit Sharma scored 103 against Sri Lanka in India’s seven-wicket victory at Headingley, and that win, combined with Australia’s defeat to South Africa, has helped India top the table.

“What is good for the team is the consistency Rohit Sharma has shown in this World Cup because it’s very easy for any batter to rest on past laurels. But he has come out in each and every innings and played in the same manner,” Bangar said about Rohit.

India finished the group stages with seven wins and a defeat from eight completed games, along with a washed out encounter against New Zealand.

India will now face New Zealand in the first semi-final on July 9 in Manchester.

The plus point for India is that Black Caps come into the semi-finals on the back of their 3 consecutive loses.

It was their Net Run Rate that helped them to attain last semi-final spot.
