Rohit Sharma…this name is currently popular all over the world. In the World Cup 2023, Rohit Sharma has won everyone’s hearts as a batsman and as a captain. Under the leadership of Rohit, a team has been formed which is so far unbeaten in the World Cup. Team India remained on top in the round robin and won all its 9 matches. Rohit Sharma had an important contribution in this and he scored 503 runs in 9 matches. But now Rohit has his biggest test. Rohit Sharma’s team is going to play the semi-final match in Mumbai and this clash will be against New Zealand who is the finalist of the last World Cup. Obviously defeating New Zealand is not going to be so easy and Rohit Sharma also knows this. If he wants to defeat this team then Rohit Sharma will now have to change his disguise.

Yes, you read it right… Rohit will have to change his disguise. Rohit Sharma has been seen in such a disguise in this World Cup that the whole world is surprised to see. Rohit has attacked his opponents as an aggressive warrior. This strategy of Rohit’s total attack has overshadowed the opponents and the rest of the batsmen of Team India have also benefited from it. Rohit has given a fast start and only then batsmen like Shubman and Virat Kohli have got a chance to establish themselves. But against New Zealand, Rohit Sharma needs to change his disguise.

Rohit Sharma will change his disguise?

Rohit Sharma’s change of disguise means that he will have to change his approach or attitude for the semi-finals. The match is in Mumbai and his performance in ODIs here has never been good. Also, the pitch of Mumbai is such that it definitely helps the fast bowlers in the first 20 overs. In such a situation, if Rohit Sharma does not bring balance in aggression then Team India may face problems.

Understand New Zealand’s attack

In this World Cup, if any other team after Team India has the best pace attack, then it is New Zealand. New Zealand has left arm swing bowler Trent Boult. They have an out swinger like Tim Southee and everyone knows about the speed of Lockie Ferguson. In such a situation, Rohit Sharma will have to wait for bad balls against this attack. If Rohit Sharma plays dot in the first few balls, then the Indian captain will have to avoid trying to force big shots. This is the only mantra for success in Mumbai.

Rohit Sharma has shown that game

The important thing is that Rohit Sharma has shown such a game against Netherlands. In the last league match played in Bengaluru, Rohit Sharma scored 61 runs in 54 balls. Rohit played 44 balls for his half-century, which was slow batting in comparison to all his previous matches. Rohit Sharma’s strike rate is more than 121, which is the highest among any top order batsman in this World Cup. However, a strategy like that of Netherlands is needed against New Zealand. Because if Rohit stands at the crease for a long time then you will consider India’s victory certain.
