Pakistan cricketer Imam-ul-Haq has revealed that he is a huge fan of veteran batter Rohit Sharma. The Indian skipper has been one of the best batters across formats in world cricket. His flamboyant batting style has earned him fans from all over the world. Rohit Sharma has numerous records to his name, including the highest score of 264* in One-day Internationals.
Speaking to Samaa News on Wednesday, Imam-ul-Haq was all praise for Rohit Sharma. He complimented the Team India cricketer and added that the god has blessed Rohit with more talent than Virat Kohli. He also expressed that Rohit Sharma has a lot of time when he bats. Recalling a match that he played against India, Imam-ul-Haq said,
“I feel the talent that God has given Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli probably doesn’t have. I have seen both of them play, but it really feels like a replay is going on the way Rohit Sharma plays. He has a lot of time and I realized the true meaning of ‘time’ when I was fielding at point.”
Imam ul haq on Rohit sharma : " I wish I can bat like Rohit, when I was standing at point & saw him batting, I was spellbound seeing him timing the ball, whe he is set on crease, he changes the game within no time & moves it according to his own will."pic.twitter.com/3CqmUzFxo4
