The Indian cricket team is going to play a five-match Test series against England, which will start on August 4. Team India is in England for this test series where India played the final match of the World Test Championship against New Zealand. Rohit Sharma will have to bat well for the team as an opener in this Test series as a good start can play a big role in helping Team India win against England. Before this Test series, former India wicketkeeper-batsman Saba Karim said about Rohit Sharma that, he will not only have to play the role of an opener but also play the role of a mentor against England. He said that Rohit Sharma will have to guide the other opener batsmen who will come during the Test series against England.


Saba Karim while talking to India News said that Rohit Sharma's role is going to be very important in the next five-match Test series. He said that it is very important to talk to Rohit Sharma. He will have to play the role of mentor for other openers coming into the team. Conditions are very difficult to bat in England, in such a situation, the advice of experienced Rohit can be very useful for other openers. Apart from this, if your openers make a big partnership, then the team manages to score big.


He further said for Rohit Sharma that, the role of Rohit Sharma in the team has been very different for the last year. According to my, the team has formed a core group of leaders where Virat Kohli is at the top and then vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane. And after that comes Rohit Sharma's name. Let us tell you that after the injury of Shubman Gill on the England tour, Mayank Agarwal will open the innings with Rohit, while Abhimanyu Easwaran is present in the team as another option.
