Former Pakistan cricketer Mudassar Nazar said India opener Rohit Sharma has replaced Virat Kohli as the team’s danger man.
Nazar noted that Kohli “hasn’t been scoring hundreds like he used to”, while Rohit has been thriving as of late.
“India’s batting wasn’t outstanding in England. Virat Kohli hasn’t been scoring hundreds like he used to in the past two or three years,” he told Cricket Pakistan.
“Instead, Rohit Sharma has now become the danger man. Having said all of that, their team is better than ours.”
His comments come ahead of the highly-anticipated clash between India and Pakistan at the T20 World Cup on October 24 in Dubai.
