Rohit Sharma, the Indian opener is playing in the form of his life. He has become an integral part of his national team on the back of his brilliant batting. He has a massive fan following across the globe. And, Jos Buttler, the England wicketkeeper is one of those, who feels that the 32-year-old opener can single-handedly knock down the opponent in the matches.
The Hitman has done exceedingly well across all the formats for Team India. Even, he performed outstandingly in the 2019 World Cup where he equalled the record of Sachin Tendulkar for scoring most centuries in the mega-event. Rohit smacked notched five tons with the help of his willow and ended up as the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 648 runs.

In a live Instagram session with Rajasthan Royals, Jos Buttler said that Rohit Sharma is a brilliant opener. He looks quite effortless while batting on the field. The England wicketkeeper also added that he likes the way in which 32-year-old opener bats for Team India.
“Rohit Sharma I think is an awesome player. Effortless. Quite a lot of Indian players have that awesome style. He has been fantastic for a long time and I just like the way he bats and the effortless nature in which he takes people down,” Jos Buttler said in the live Instagram session with Rajasthan Royals.
As per him, the interesting thing about Rohit Sharma is that if he gets settled, then he scores big runs against the opponents and that creates a lot of impact on the result of the match. A few years ago, the bowlers used to come out with a strategy to bowl short balls against Indian batsmen. But, the Indian Hitman has changed the dynamics, who effortlessly smacks six on those deliveries.
“One of the things I have seen with Rohit is that if he gets in, he scores big runs and really affects the game. He must have scored 4-5 hundred in the World Cup last year. I think a few years ago people used to attack Indian players with the short ball but Rohit smashes them. Then you go fuller and he smashes them right down the ground,” added Buttler.
