Indian cricket superstar Rohit Sharma is probably one of the most devastating and steady openers in international cricket. Whether it is a white ball or Test format, the Mumbaikar dominates the game and has the ability to destroy a bowling attack in the world. No wonder many cricketers are Rohit’s fans, and the latest addition in this regard is the Australian women’s cricketer Alyssa Healy.
Healy said she wants to follow Rohit’s batting style to achieve success in her career. She names Rohit as one of the most ‘devastating’ white ball batsmen and is impressed with the success of the Indian star in the longest format of the game.
‘It’s a difficult one because I’ve only played four Tests, so I would not say I’m too comfortable with how to play or how to approach a Test. From my point of view, I do not think it will change too much from my one-day bat. I think the ability to give yourself more time is such a blessing, ‘ says Healy as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.
‘I look at the modern test game and see how much it has changed. I watch a lot of men’s cricket, and I’m watching someone like Rohit Sharma, one of the most devastating white ball batsmen in the world, and yet he’s a very successful starting batsman in Test cricket. So, for me, I said: look at someone like him and think about how he can translate the skills in all the formats, I could repeat it in some way, ” she added.
Healy also shares her thoughts on the upcoming home series against India. The victim of the wicketkeeper remarked that the Indian women side are dangerous because of their unpredictable nature.
‘Sometimes a little bit of the unknown and unpredictable nature of India makes them incredibly dangerous. They have selected some new players that we have not seen on this tour yet. “So they always like to throw something new at us, even if it’s Poonam Yadav, she always has something new to throw at us, just to kick us off the track again.” Healy added further.
