Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, is playing poorly with the bat right now, and even though his statistics as the team’s leader have improved, as a player he is still well below his peak.
Rohit “Hitman” Sharma has one half-century in the last 13 T20 innings, and if India is to do well in the next games when winning requires giving it your all, this elite batsman must score.

All eyes have been on the disastrous debut of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma’s combo. While the former has found his form, Rohit Sharma still needs to find his rhythm in this league.
Ravi Shastri said "Watch out for Rohit Sharma & Virat Kohli in big stages, I think they will come good".

Let me share some of the last innings score in the format below before he goes into detail about Sharma’s batting performance in the main event.
In the last 10 T20 matches, Sharma has 165 runs at an average of 16.50.

His failure in the current edition of the premier event can be attributed to a number of factors, including captaincy pressure, Rahul’s dot pressure in the first over, where he needs to increase the run rate from the other end, and adjusting to the Australian conditions.
We all know Sharma’s class, so he needs to perform well in the upcoming games and play his natural game regardless of the circumstances. The moment he begins to play his natural game, India will inevitably benefit in the most crucial match.

It has been questioned why India hasn’t won a major competition since 2013, thus it would be intriguing to watch if India can break those restrictions in this current competition.
