“I definitely don’t have so much power. I rely a lot on timing the ball more than anything else. I know what my strengths are as well as my weaknesses. I try to play to the field as much as I can, to be honest,” Rohit said.
“The field is spread after six overs. I try and see where I can find my boundary options. It’s important to be able to play with the field. I want to score all around the park and not just one area. It’s important to explore the fielding the opposition keeps for me. In all formats, I try to do that. You can’t just hit in one area, you become predictable then. It’s always important to score runs all over the field and that’s my strength,” the 30 year old batsman said.
In one day international, Rohit Sharma scored three double hundreds.
