Rohit Sharma: Rohit, who scored a century in ‘Oval’, opened the secret, with this formula he can shower runs in England

London: Indian captain Rohit Sharma scored his only Test century outside the subcontinent in 2021 at ‘The Oval’. He says that no one feels comfortable at the crease as a batsman in English conditions but he knows when to show aggression against the bowlers of the rival team. Ahead of the World Test Championship final against Australia starting on Wednesday, the Indian captain feels there is no option but to work hard on English pitches. Rohit said at an ICC event ‘Afternoon with Test Legends’ on Sunday. “I think generally the conditions are very challenging for the batsman in England. As long as you are ready to deal with challenges, you get success. Rohit was the best batsman in India in the four Tests against England in 2021. Talking about his personal experience, the Indian captain, who was seated with Pat Cummins, Ross Taylor and Ian Bell, said, ‘One thing I realized in 2021 is that you never settle down at the crease and then the weather keeps changing. You have to concentrate for a long time and then you know it is time to tune the bowlers. The most important thing is that you have to go to the crease and understand what is your strength.

Over the years with Mumbai Indians and Team India, he pays a lot of attention to numbers and data. Rohit feels knowing the scoring ‘pattern’ of former players who have found success at ‘The Oval’ is not a bad idea. He said, ‘I will not try to emulate them (successful players) but it would be good to know their ‘pattern’ of scoring runs. I found that square boundaries look very fast in the oval.

Rohit, who has adapted from one format to another over the past decade, knows it is difficult but he enjoys the challenge and his own ability to tweak his technique as per the need. Rohit said, ‘Changing the format is certainly challenging. You play in multiple formats. Mentally you have to adapt to change and tweak your technique. You should be mentally prepared.
