“I really feel he understands his game much more now. This is just not the Rohit Sharma that we’ve got seen before. He is aware of where he must settle down. Even in ODI cricket, if you happen to see the World Cup, the ball was transferring around in a number of matches and he held back. He held back for 8-10 overs against South Africa and Pakistan,” Jaffer stated.

Rohit made a considerable comeback to Test cricket in 2019 as he scored a bagful of runs on residence situations. He was anticipated to play his first series as an opener outdoors the sub-continent in New Zealand this yr however he needed to miss the problem as a result of an harm.

Jaffer believes Rohit can score large even outdoors India if he survives the preliminary part. “I really feel in abroad situations in the first 30-45 minutes he’s a bit susceptible. I believe if he survives that, he has the flexibility to get double a whole bunch even there,” the previous Mumbai and Vidarbha legend stated.

“Then when he understands that the situations have change into better, he has that potential to speed up and immediately his strike rate would go as much as 120-130. So, I really feel he’s in that headspace that he understands where he must take a backseat and where he can attack. And he has each the games.”

Jaffer represented India in 31 Test matches, scoring 1944 runs at an average of 34.10 with 5 centuries and 11 half-centuries to his name. He can also be the highest run-getter in Ranji Trophy historical past with more than 12,000 runs.
