IND vs SA: Rohit Sharma wants 'to make impact in ODI series'
Rohit Sharma has not been able to replicate his rich limited overs form in Test matches but he says it doesn't mean that he needs to make drastic changes in his game for the five-day format
Rohit Sharma has not been able to replicate his rich limited overs form in Test matches but he says it doesn't mean that he needs to make drastic changes in his game for the five-day format. Rohit has smashed a double hundred in ODIs and joint-fastest century in T20s against Sri Lanka but runs deserted him in the first two Tests in South Africa before he was dropped for the third Test.
"It's not that I don't try much in Test cricket. I give the same effort in all the formats that I play, but sometimes it comes and sometimes it doesn't. But that doesn't mean that you have to change things too much," said vice-captain Rohit ahead of the first ODI on Thursday.
"You've got to believe in yourself, you've come so far and played and got success. I've been in a difficult situation before many times, so for me it's all about taking it one game at a time and responding to situations.
Being an integral part of the ODI, he is itching to perform in the six-match series. "I'm not going to talk about Test cricket so much because it's over now, and we have a big job at hand winning the ODI series here. Every batsman who will be taking part in this ODI series will have a huge role to play. I'm here to make an impact in the series."
