Irfan Pathan compares MS Dhoni to India’s batsman, says he should learn from him

In the ongoing Pink Test in Bengaluru, Rohit Sharma displayed an array of shots that nullified Sri Lanka’s spin attack. His batting was confident and he picked the ball up well. In his opening partnership with Mayank Agarwal, he stitched a 42-run stand, but he was eventually out for 22.


Despite being dismissed by Mayank, Rohit continued to toy with the Lankan bowlers. In the 30th over, he was bowled by Dhananjaya de Silva for 46 off 79 deliveries. Last week, he led the team to a thumping victory over Sri Lanka in Mohali as his first Test as captain. Rohit has faced ups and downs throughout his career. Irfan Pathan praised the captain’s calm demeanor and heaped praise on him. It is common for all players to go through phases in their careers when they are not able to perform and are only left with disappointment. Rohit and Jadeja are two such players in the current team. ”It was in the 2013 Champions Trophy that he got the best opportunity to showcase his skills. When Rohit was given the opportunity to open the innings, his career took off. It improved both his performance and consistency. It’s been said that Dhoni is Mr. Cool, but Rohit is cool as a cucumber,” Irfan said during a recent press conference.


”Midway through the season, he was also named skipper of the Mumbai Indians. Ricky Ponting was replaced by him, and the franchise was completely changed. Being involved in Mumbai’s meetings is a challenge, as there are so many of them. Rohit teaches how to be involved in the growth of his team, so one should learn from him,” he concluded.
