India vs Australia 2019 ODIs: India opener Rohit Sharma looks in fine touch in the net session that India cricket team had on Thursday morning. Sharma, who was a part of the Test side had left for India as he had become a father and now he seems all geared up for the white ball format, his preferred ground. Rohit was leaving balls well and also stroking them from the middle of the bat in the nets, which showed that he is seeing the ball well and that could augur well for the Indian team. MS Dhoni has also joined the sie for the three-match ODI series and he will bring a lot of experience to the table which will help in the limited overs schedule that beckons team India.
Here is the video of the net session Rohit Sharma had:
Rohit has a great chance of scripting a unique ODI record where he can overtake Windies legend Sir Viv Richards. Both Rohit and Sir Viv have scored three centuries each against Australia in Australia.
Whereas, Rohit has taken just 16 ODIs to achieve the feat, the Windies great managed to score the same number of tons in 40 outings. Thus, if Rohit manages to score one more hundred in the upcoming series versus Kangaroos, he will reach the top of the pile.
