Talking to Star Sports, Manjrekar said, ‘I don’t know why big scores are not coming. I don’t see any clear indication there that he is not batting well. With Virat Kohli, we saw that he was not in the kind of form that we expect or have become used to over the years. Rohit Sharma seems to be hitting the ball well, scored 30-40, 70-80 in the series against Sri Lanka, but could not score a century.

He further said, ‘As long as India is scoring 350 or more, I have no problem with them not scoring hundreds. He could be close to a century as there is no clear indication that he is out of form or struggling.

It is the year of the World Cup and Rohit Sharma is in dire need of getting back to his old self ahead of the ICC tournament. When India last played the World Cup in 2019, it was only on the basis of Rohit Sharma that Team India was able to reach the semi-finals. Rohit had scored 5 centuries during that period which is the most by any batsman in a single World Cup. It is expected that by the time the World Cup approaches, fans will get to see Rohit’s regular hundreds with the bat.
