Indian team vice-captain Rohit Sharma has revealed that he feared two bowlers. He said that at the beginning of his career, Australian fast bowler Brett Lee and South African fast bowler Dale Steyn had to face difficulties in playing.
Rohit revealed this during a live chat on Instagram with fast bowler Mohammed Shami. Shami asked him a question about this. According to the Indian opener, it was difficult for both Brett Lee and Dale Steyn to survive.
When Shami asked Rohit who are the two difficult fast bowlers at present. On this he chose South Africa Kagiso Rabada and Australia Josh Hazlewood.
Rohit said, “When I came in the team, Brett Lee used to be the fastest bowler in the world.” I went to Ireland to face South Africa for the debut ODI series. Dale Steyn also bowled very fast then. Lee and Stan liked when I started playing. I had difficulties in front of them.”
When I came in the team, Brett Lee was the fastest bowler in the world at that time. In my first ODI series, I went to Ireland to face South Africa and Dale Steyn also bowled very fast at that time. When I started playing, I really liked Brett Lee and Dale Steyn, I also had difficulties facing them. Currently, Rabada is the best bowler. I also like Hazelwood. He bowls under a lot of discipline.
Rohit made his ODI debut in 2007. Then Team India went to Ireland to play the three-nation series. The third team there was from South Africa. 33-year-old Rohit is the only batsman in the world who has scored three double centuries in ODIs.
His name is the highest score in the format of 50 overs. Rohit scored an innings of 264 runs against Sri Lanka in 2014 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Last year, he scored the highest 648 runs in the World Cup, including 5 centuries.
