IND vs WI: Rohit Sharma to take captain’s pressure, comes out to bat at 4

Rohit surprisingly comes down the order and bats at number 4.

Rohit Sharma believes he should bat further down the order, which is improbable given that he hasn’t batted lower down the order since previous captain MS Dhoni sent him to begin the innings.

Rohit assigned his two youthful openers, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan, to bat first. In the ODI series against the West Indies, Rohit was observed stating in the conference that he would be leading the team from the back and that he wanted to give the team opportunity and try new strategies.

After Shreyas Iyer’s wicket was taken out by Walsh, India lost their second wicket. Rohit has came in to play at number four. The crowd erupts in applause as their hit man scores some huge runs.

Since the renowned Eden Gardens and captain Rohit Sharma had a perfect correlation of ‘big scores,’ the Eden Gardens, which had 75% coverage today, would be yearning for Rohit to bat.

Rohit has recently announced the all-format captain for team India, which can be another reason Rohit has seen taking the captain’s pressure.
