Selfless Cricket! How Rohit Sharma And Virat Kohli Changed Their Game In T20Is

Indian skipper and batting sensation have developed a fresh approach for shorter formats

Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are two of the experienced batters in Indian cricket. The duo have been playing together for a decade, and have recorded impressive achievements in the past. The 35-year-old Rohit Sharma and 33-year-old Virat Kohli are batting mainstays in the present lineup. Their meager presence can give India an advantage over other teams as only a few teams have such quality, experience, and class in the top three.

The Hitman has four international T20 centuries in his name. He presents a picture of class and perfection when he’s batting big. Rohit of late has stopped scoring big hundreds but has been playing an instrumental role by scoring vital runs for the team. As other batters like KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav are hitting big runs, his runs often go unnoticed in the overall picture. 

Virat Kohli is back among runs

India’s last match against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup was a welcome one for the fans for one special reason. It saw Virat Kohli ending his century drought. The Indian sensation smashed his way to a hundred and answered his critics wrong with that knock. Since then, he has been scoring crucial scores for the team. 

In the second T20I versus South Africa, King Kohli made a sweet gesture. He asked Dinesh Karthik to go for big shots while he was batting on 49 at the other end. The former Indian skipper lately revealed his desire to hit runs for the team’s cause and not chase the records. 

Virat and Rohit are playing selfless cricket

Going by the recent trends, both batters have shed the habit of chasing personal milestones. They have time again maintained to press about the alternative approach to batting. It is about scoring those bonus runs when the team needs them. 

As a result, fans may see fewer personal milestones from the duo. Because they have changed their approach and the alternative approach marks more importance to the team game. Because cricket is a team game and players have many roles.
