Cape Town: Rohit Sharma’s form is the only shortcoming in India’s victories in the first two ODIs against injury-hit South Africa, but his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan is confident that the Mumbaikar is just a knock away from finding his groove in the six-match ODI series.
Speaking to reporters on the eve of the third ODI at Newlands here, Dhawan said Rohit, who has so far scored just 35 runs in two innings, is timing the ball well and a good knock is not far away.
“I feel Rohit is playing well, looking at the way he is timing the ball. Even in the last match, he was playing really good. Unfortunately, he got out but I don’t feel concerned about his batting at all,” the southpaw said.
“He has performed so well right from the Champions Trophy, until now. Sometimes it does happen that you don`t score runs. But what matters the most is how he is timing the ball. There is no problem at all with his form. I think he just needs one good innings,” he added.
