Rohit Sharma has enjoyed his role as a Test opener (India Team Opening Batting) but in the forthcoming Test series against Australia, he is in the batting order according to the demands of the team management. Ready to be flexible about location.
Senior batsman captain Virat Kohli (Virat Kohli) is expected to play a big role with Test vice captain Ajinkya Rahane (Ajinkya Rahane) and Cheteshwar Pujara (Cheteshwar Pujara) returning to India after the opening Test.
Rohit said, ‘I will call you the same thing that I have said to everyone. Wherever the team wants, I am willing to bat there but I do not know if they will change my role as an opener or not. He believes that by the time he arrives in Australia after training in ‘Strength and Conditioning’ at the National Cricket Acedamy in Bangalore, the team management will have determined his role.

He suffered a minor hamstring injury during the Indian Premier League. Rohit said, “I am confident that the team management who arrived in Australia will have identified the options after Virat Kohli’s departure and who are the players who will start the innings.” He said, ‘Once I get there, I will be clear what will happen. I will be ready to bat at the place they want.
Rohit, one of the best players to play hook and pull shot, believes that bounce on Australian pitches is sometimes not as big a factor as it is made. He said, ‘We talk about the bounce, except for Perth, on other grounds (Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney) in the last few years I don’t think there is so much bounce.’
Rohit said, “Now, especially starting the innings, I have to think about not playing cut and pull shots and as far as possible, I have to concentrate on playing ‘V’ and straight shots.”
