There is a constant debate in the cricketing world between India captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain in the limited-overs, Rohit Sharma as who is a better white-ball player. Both the payers have their own style of playing.
While Virat Kohli has a whopping 70 centuries across all formats so far which also included 43 ODI tons, Rohit Sharma is no less. He is equally exceptional while it comes to score centuries. While Kohli has second-most 100 plus scores in the format, after the batting legend Sachin Tendulkar's record of 100 tons, Rohit has shown his calibre once again in the World Cup 2019 where He smashed five tons as well.
However, not only this, he also holds the record of scoring three double centuries in the One Day Internationals which is most by a player. Moreover, it is widely believed that if someone can score a 200 in T20Is, it is only Rohit Sharma and no one else.
Recently, former Australia spinner Brad Hogg was asked the same question on his Youtube channel where he replied, “Well, Virat Kohli, because he’s more consistent when India have the big run chases. When India are batting second, he stands up and delivers.”
But the veteran spinner was pretty quick to explain his points that the two players can never be compared since they both play the different roles in the team.
“But you really cannot compare the two as they have different roles. Rohit’s role is to be aggressive against the new ball bowlers when field restrictions are at their least and Virat’s role is to bat through the innings and make sure he’s there at the end, so they complement each other,” he said.
However, the entire world has been fighting against the global pandemic COVID-19 which has brought the world into a standstill and postponed all the sporting events as well. As Australia announced their next fixture, it is to see if the series would take place amid this crunch time in most of the places.
