<p>In an astounding development in cricket, Virat Kohli stunned everyone with his open evaluation of Rohit Sharma’s skill during a recent talk with seasoned spinner R Ashwin. Ashwin, who has been paying careful attention to Team India’s performance in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023, was overcome with appreciation for Rohit Sharma’s outstanding performance in the competition.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-180556″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-captains-nightmare-question-kohli-slams-ashwin-download-2023-09-14t173035.099-11zo.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com captains nightmare question kohli slams ashwin download 2023 09 14t173035.099 11zo” width=”1032″ height=”585″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-captains-nightmare-question-kohli-slams-ashwin-download-2023-09-14t173035.099-11zo.jpg 298w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-captains-nightmare-question-kohli-slams-ashwin-download-2023-09-14t173035.099-11zo-150×85.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1032px) 100vw, 1032px” title=”'Captain's Nightmare' Question: Kohli slams Ashwin 3″></p>
<p>In the Super Four match against Pakistan, Rohit, who had originally struggled against the Pakistan pacers in India’s tournament opener, made an incredible comeback by scoring an incredible half-century. He put on yet another outstanding display against Sri Lanka, smashing 53 runs off 48 balls, as his brilliant form continued. India won the match with a commanding margin of 41 runs thanks in large part to this magnificent effort.</p>
<p>The highlight of the game was Rohit’s amazing 53-run performance against Sri Lanka, which made batting seem easy even on the difficult R Premadasa Stadium pitch in Colombo. During a video session on his YouTube channel, Ashwin offered a fascinating narrative in which he reflected on Rohit’s outstanding achievements in the Asia Cup 2023.</p>
<p>Rohit was in full swing during one of India’s games, unleashing a vicious attack on the opposing bowlers. With Rohit in such destructive form, Ashwin couldn’t help but wonder how a bowler could ever stop him. In this instance, Kohli, ever the astute observer, asked Ashwin a challenging question. He asked Ashwin who he thought was the “captain’s nightmare” in the death overs.</p>
<p>Known for his sharp cricketing insight, Ashwin quickly mentioned former India captain MS Dhoni, who is regarded as one of the best finishers in the sport. However, everyone was taken aback by Kohli’s remark. He said vehemently that Rohit Sharma was the “captain’s nightmare” at its worst during the death overs. No one, not even seasoned bowlers, could figure out where to bowl to Rohit while he was in full flow, which was the reason this decision was made.</p>
<p>Ashwin recalled this chat, adding, “Virat Kohli and I had a debate when Rohit was batting five or six years ago. I cannot recall which game it was. When I saw Rohit batting, I wondered, “Where do you even bowl to him?” After 15 to 20 overs, if Rohit is set, you wouldn’t know where to bowl to him. Do you know who is a captain’s nightmare at the death? Virat questioned me. ‘Is it Dhoni?’ I questioned. “No, it’s Rohit,” said Kohli. He said that you won’t know where to bowl when I questioned why.</p>
<p>Rohit received more praise from Ashwin, who praised him as a complete batter who makes batting seem easy and like a great art. Rohit Sharma has accumulated a vast repertoire of strokes over the course of his many years of cricket that can neutralize any bowling assault. In a T20 match, Ashwin conceded that bowlers would be at a loss as to where to pitch the ball if Rohit remained on the crease till the 16th over.</p>
<p>“Where do you bowl in a T20 match if Rohit Sharma is at the crease by the sixteenth over? He has a broad variety of strokes in his arsenal, and Kohli will never forget the spectacular inning he pitched at Chinnaswamy Stadium. Ashwin said in awe, “Rohit Sharma has all the shots, and he executes them with such grace and ease.</p>
<p>Rohit Sharma’s ability to confuse bowlers, even in the pressure-cooker moments of the death overs, serves as a monument to his batting genius in a sport filled with extraordinary abilities. Rohit’s reputation as a real master of the game, capable of leaving the opposition scratching their heads in pure bewilderment, has been further cemented by Kohli’s discovery.</p>
