Rohit Sharma not playing in ODI series against Australia, India may lose, strong record

Rohit Sharma will not play in the ODI series against Australia.

13th November, 2020

The tour of Australia has always been a big challenge for the Indian cricket team. Once again Team India is on a tour of Australia where it has to take part in three ODIs and T20s as well as a four-match Test series against the Kangaroo team. This time Team India will not get Rohit Sharma's support against this team in ODIs and T20 series. Actually Rohit Sharma has been given only a place in the Test team for the tour of Australia because of the IPL injury. In such a situation, if the experienced and veteran batsman like Rohit do not play in the ODI series against the Kangaroo team, then the impact on Team India is bound to fall.

Actually Rohit Sharma's record is tremendous against the Kangaroo team in ODI cricket. Although Sachin Tendulkar is at number one in terms of scoring the most runs against the Kangaroo team in ODI format, who scored 3077 runs in 71 matches, but Rohit's record is the best in the current team. Rohit Sharma is second after Sachin in scoring the most runs against Australia.

Rohit Sharma has scored 2208 runs at an average of 61.33 in 40 ODIs against Australia. It also includes 8 centuries and his best score is 209 runs. Now seeing Rohit's record, it is clear that how effective he has been against this team, in such a situation, his absence in the ODI team will definitely impact the team's result.

Apart from Rohit, if you talk about captain Virat Kohli, then his record has been very good against the Kangaroo team in ODIs. He has also scored 1910 runs in 40 matches at an average of 54.57 which includes 8 centuries. At the same time Sachin had scored 9 centuries against this team. The ODI series will begin on 27 November on this Australia tour of India.
