Over the “First ODI Hundred in Three Years” statistic, Rohit Sharma takes aim at the broadcaster

In the third one-day international (ODI) match between India and New Zealand in Indore, Rohit Sharma notched his 30th and first ODI century in three years.

However, the captain of India believes that the statistic does not reflect the true picture. The broadcaster’s assertion that Rohit Sharma’s century in the third ODI against New Zealand was his first in “three years” angered the captain.

Who noted that he had not played any 50-over matches during that time due to various factors. In the third game against New Zealand on Tuesday, Rohit scored his 30th ODI century by pulling away to deep square.

The statistic that it was the Indian captain’s first century since January 2020 was shown on the screen by the presenter. The statistic is true, but Rohit felt it didn’t provide the correct impression.

I’ve only played 12 (17) ODIs in the past three years, but I’ve reached the first 100. Three years sounds like a lot, Rohit said to reporters after the game.

Rohit, who scored nine fours and six sixes in India’s 90-run victory, responded, “As I said, there were no matches in 2020,” when a journalist asked if it was the return of the “Hitman,” his nickname. Due to COVID-19, everyone remained at home.

You need to put all of that into perspective because we barely played ODIs and I was injured, so I only played two Tests during that time.

Last year, we participated in Twenty20 cricket. Suryakumar Yadav is currently the best batsman in Twenty20 cricket.

He has scored two hundred, which is unheard of. In his second over, Shardul Thakur took a lot of wickets. He took Daryl Mitchell and Tom Latham’s wickets off consecutive balls before getting rid of Glenn Phillips in his next over. This changed the game’s tone.

He has a gift for taking wickets at crucial moments for us. It has occurred in both ODI cricket and Test cricket. He is extremely important to us and our position as a team.

“This man has a lot of intelligence; He knows what needs to be done because he has played a lot of domestic cricket.”

He described the strategy Shardul, Hardik Pandya, and Virat Kohli had for firing New Zealand captain Tom Latham.

“In this format, you have to use your skills, and Shardul definitely has them. He bowled Tom Latham a good knuckleball on Tuesday, which Virat, Hardik, and Shardul had well planned in the middle.”

The young Shubman Gill, who scored the most runs in the series, was also highly praised by the skipper.

Regarding his batting in the series, I don’t believe anything more needs to be said. He knows his stuff and pitches well, so we want him to play big and deep.

“No matter how flat the pitch is, a double hundred is difficult, and that shows. He is calculating because the next best score in that game, the first one-day international, was 34.

He has a lot of maturities.” India moved up to first place in the ODI rankings thanks to the victory, but Rohit didn’t care.

“We prepare for the major tournaments, so we don’t get too involved. We intend to be prepared for anything. Confidence is boosted by these series.”
