Rohith Sharma:Oh!What a Phenomenon!

After the matches against Australia and Sri Lanka in the ongoing CB Series,India has found a new batting talent in Rohith Sharma.Atleast I,if not everyone has been impressed by the way this young lad took responsibility to take charge of the Indian batting,on three out of four occasions when the team desperately needed it.The match winning knock 0f 39(61b,2X4) in addition to the unbeaten 58-run partnership along with captain M.S.Dhoni to grab a 5-wicket win against Australia at Melbourne.

The man once again proved his calibre on tuesday against Sri Lanka with an unbeaten 70(65b,7X4,1X6) to put up a decent total of 195/5 with over 6.0 an over.The man was first bought to the big screen in the super eights match against South Africa in the T20 World cup where he scored 50(40b,7X4,2X6) to help India win the match and reach the semifinals of the same.

With the likes of batting greats of Sachin in their fag end of their career,and the likes of Ganguly and Dravid being under scrutiny,this man from Maharashtra can be likely to lead the Indian batting in the near future along with the likes of Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh,Robin Uttappa and M.S.Dhoni.

With men like Rohith Sharma,Robin Uttappa,M S Dhoni,who can make a difference with the bat,in addition to talented bowlers like Ishanth Sharma,Sreesanth and R P Singh along with experienced lot of Yuvraj,Sehwag,Zaheer and Harbhajan Singh,it would just be a perfect combination when the team goes into the 2011 World Cup in the subcontinentBut,still thats a long way to go...
