Rohit Sharma Good Replacement for Indian Crickets’ Sachin Tendulkar
The Indian Cricket team is suffering from an era that will mark the end of a golden period in the history of Indian Cricket. The five main pillars of the Indian team that have seen India grow from an underdog in the world cricket to being a superpower and now the number two test team are set to retire from the Indian team. The five main pillars are: Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, and Anil Kumble.
Will their retirement leave team India again to its old state of being an underdog? Or Are there any replacements for the five players?
Let us see the possible replacements for the five players one by one. This article will focus on the replacements that are possible for Sachin Tendulkar. Sachin is a right handed batsman with great shots as well as the temperament that helps him to score more than 3 double centuries. He is a very great batsman. So, who can replace him once he retires? Let’s have a look:
Sachin Tendulkar dominated the world cricket for many years. He was the number one batsman in world cricket for more than 5 years. Now that he is over 33 and he is slowly getting out of form, there are speculations all over the world about his retirement. So, who are the possible replacements?
Robin Uthappa: He is a very good player and can match Sachin with his strokes. But the temperament shown by Sachin is lacking in him. He does not have the temperament to play very large innings. He can play small innings very fast and can be a big hitter. But he cannot be the pillar of the team.
Virendra Sehwag: He is the only player who seems to be naturally made to replace Sachin. Though he has already made his place in the team, he has all the things that Sachin had and even some that Sachin lacked. He has two triple centuries to his name. He is the only replacement for Sachin. But, he himself is a great player and cannot be sent in Sachin’s place
Rohit Sharma: He is the replacement for Sachin. Once Sachin retires, his place will be filled by no one else than Rohit Sharma. He has the temperament, the technique, and the shots that will help him to take the place of Sachin Tendulkar. Though he will not be able to match the master completely, he is sure to fill the spot.
We have found him. Rohit Sharma is the batsman who will take the place of Sachin Tendulkar.
