Brisbane: The way Rohit Sharma came out in the fourth test between India and Australia (IND vs AUS) is the subject of much criticism. Now the hitman’s answer from India has come on this issue, in which he defended himself.
Rohit Sharma understands the criticism of being absent at the wrong time. Despite this, this Indian opener has no qualms about playing this shot on Nathan Lyon’s ball. He said it was a way of putting pressure on the opposition bowlers.

Rohit looked in a good rhythm during his 44-ball 74, when Lion was trying to pick up the ball in the middle of the wicket, and it’s the same shot he took out early in tryouts. That was the reason.
Rohit said in the virtual press conference after the day’s play ended: ‘You still have a plan and I really don’t regret playing that move. I always want to put pressure on the bowlers.
Rohit praised the Aussie pitcher, saying: “Nathan Lyon is a smart bowler and he played me in a way that made it difficult for me to lift the ball a bit.”
His selection of shots was criticized in the comments box. Rohit could have started well and made a big score, which allowed India to score 62 for two at the stumps.
Rohit understands his disappointment but explains why he made such a move. He said, “It’s not that this (that shot) is coming from anywhere. It’s a move that I played long before. I want to play this shot.
Rohit said: “I play a similar role on this team. When that happens it looks bad but I don’t think much because my goal is that when I reach the fold I will prove to be beneficial.
This senior player said of his intention to play this shot, “It means I want to follow a process. Sometimes you’re outside and sometimes it goes over the rope.
Rohit Sharma added: “ But to be honest my exit was unhappy and sad. Like I said, these are my moves and I will continue to play them.
As he always says, he doesn’t have a lot of time to think about things from his critics. They would instead focus on the role their team expects of them.
Rohit said: “The team showed great confidence in me. I have to do what the team wants with me and not worry about what is going on anywhere, even if people keep talking about anything. Rohit started from 27 and 52 (in Sydney) in his three innings and scored 44 points here.
Speaking about the technical compatibility of the Australian fast bowlers in Sydney and here in Brisbane to cope well, he said: “There wasn’t a lot of bounce in Sydney so I was staying on the stump of the leg.”
Rohit said: “ Here I knew in what line and length the 2 right-handed bowlers (Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood) will be playing, they’re still trying to get you out of the strain. So there, I was towards a little stump.
