Team India opener Rohit Sharma, who has been named India’s full-time white-ball captain, is one of the best in the business in limited-overs cricket now. Recently, he was seen giving tips to youngsters who are keen to learn the game as well as the tricks of his pull shot.

On Wednesday, a Twitter user tweeted to Rohit Sharma seeking his help on how to improve his pull shot. And, he responded as well.

[email protected], need your help on perfecting my pull shot. Not able to generate power when I am trying to control it,” the fan wrote. “Don’t worry… if the bowler pitches it short, just slice it. What say, @mipaltan?” the Indian opener added.

However, in the ODI series against South Africa, KL Rahul is leading the team as Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the entire tournament with an injury. Meanwhile, Indian speedster Jasprit Bumrah has been named the deputy for the three-match series as well.

On the other hand, BCCI chief selector Chetan Sharma had said that Rohit Sharma is undergoing rehab for his injury.

“We decided not to send him because he can work on his muscles. Needs to get 100 percent fit for World Cup. All selectors had a good chat with Rohit,” Sharma had earlier said in a press conference.

However, Rohit was appointed India’s T20I captain after Virat Kohli announced his decision to step down after the conclusion of the T20 World Cup 2021. Meanwhile, Kohli was sacked from the ODI captaincy and Rohit has been named the ODI captain too prior to the South Africa series. Along with this, he was handed over the Test vice-captaincy as well.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli has stepped down from Test captaincy as well and there is a huge task on selectors’ hands to find a suitable successor for the longer format too. However, the first ODI match of the three-match ODI series between India and South Africa is currently going on at the Boland Park in Paarl on Wednesday (January 19).
