Rohit has ability to play short ball against pacers with ease: Josh Hazlewood

Rohit has ability to play short ball against pacers with ease: Josh Hazlewood

New Delhi, Jul 8 (UNI) Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood talking about India opener Rohit Sharma says he has the ablility to play short ball with such ease without hitting the ball too hard.

Speaking on Star Sports show Cricket Connected, Hazlewood said, “He’s got many. I think it’s just with how the ease that he plays, specially anything back of a length, anything short, just puts it away with such ease.

"It’s just an area in which he gets better, I think. He never looks to bludgeon the ball, just pure class and elegance. His records, especially in white-ball cricket, is phenomenal.”

Hazlewood also says players like Rohit smash even good bowlers like Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins leaving them frustrated and make their bowling look ordinary.

"Yeah, absolutely (it is annoying when Rohit plays a fast bowler with such grace). I mean the batters through our time, obviously are the frustrating ones to bowl to.

"Even when someone who came quicker like Mitchell Starc or Pat Cummins’ bowling to those guys, it doesn’t seem fast and that’s probably the one thing that sticks out when you are bowling to these types of players."
