Indian commentator Sanjay Manjrekar showered praise on Indian captain Rohit Sharma’s aggressive approach in the ongoing edition of the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023 tournament. Rohit Sharma drew plaudits for playing the game with a lot of intent by providing electrifying starts for the team.
In fact, the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma has tweaked his batting approach in such a way that he has mounted pressure on the opposition teams by scoring runs at a rate of knots. The experienced campaigner has time and again troubled the opponents by accelerating the team’s scoreboard in the powerplay overs.
This attacking approach has well and truly reduced the pressure on the rest of the batters. Team India are the only team that remains unbeaten in the ongoing competition, with as many as five wins coming against the likes of Australia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh and New Zealand respectively.

Rohit Sharma is currently the third-leading run-scorer in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 with 311 runs at an average of 62.20. During the discussion on Star Sports, the commentator, Manjrekar was asked about the Indian captain reducing the burden on the rest of the batsmen, with his aggressive approach in the 10 overs.
“I like this Rohit Sharma because India are winning more and winning more convincingly. He scored five centuries in 2019 but India’s performance didn’t look this convincing. Yes, he is scoring forties but is going after setting a good platform,” Sanjay added.
“Shubman Gill was also there alongside him, the way he is playing. When 70 runs are scored in the first 10 overs, it becomes very easy later. The talk was about Trent Boult’s swing, and that Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry could trouble the Indian batters a lot on this pitch,” said the Indian commentator.
Team India will lock horns with England in the next match on October 29, Sunday at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.
