‘Be aggressive’: Adam Gilchrist decodes ‘inspirational’ Rohit Sharma at T20 World Cup


Former Australia wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist heaped praise on Rohit Sharma after the India captain hit a 41-ball 92 in one of the most fearless knocks in T20 World Cups in their Super 8 match against Mitchell Marsh’s Australia on Monday, June 24. Rohit walked the talk, hitting 8 sixes and 7 boundaries in a brutal display of big-hitting that helped India beat the 2021 champions in their Group 1 match. Rohit Sharma’s blitzkrieg ensured Australia were knocked out of the T20 World Cup without making it to the semi-final stage. Afghanistan’s win over Bangladesh on Tuesday morning confirmed Australia’s exit as Rashid Khan’s men progressed to the last four after finishing second in Group 1. “That’s right. He is making those statements off the field. This is how we play. And on the field, it’s inspiration stuff, it’s great entertainment. And question marks around his T20 impact – all the IPL stats and all that — that’s just again a reinforcement of the value of his leadership and the value of a team that is inspired by him. It was a really good stroke selection, knowing where to go to put the bowler off,” Adam Gilchrist told Cricbuzz.
