Although Team India’s ‘hitman’ opener Rohit Sharma hardly appears in difficulty on a bowler’s ball. But batting against Indian pace bowler Mohammed Shami in net practice is difficult for even Rohit Sharma. Rohit shared this secret of his batting with women’s team India opener Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues.

Shami does not like bowling in the nets

Rohit Sharma told that Mohammad Shami does not like bowling much during net practice. Shami says that even a bowler has to throw 25 overs in a situation that takes life during a test match, so why to spend life on the net later.

Shami vents her anger by hitting a dangerous bouncer

Rohit said that when Shami gets down to bowl at net practice, it is most difficult for him to play. He gets angry at bowlers for bowling on the net by hitting bouncers continuously. Net practice pitches are more grass-fed green. Such pitches are very good for fast bowlers. He said that Shami also likes this. If you get such a practice pitch, he comes and eat more biryani that day and then wreak havoc on the batsmen.
