Rohit scored useful runs against New Zealand
Rohit Sharma is one of the best batsmen in the Indian squad, when in form

The name Rohit Gurunath Sharma is an enigma for most cricket fans. One day he will tear into one of the best attacks in the world and on another day he will agonisingly throw his wicket away after seemingly getting set.

He is one of the most important batsmen for India and can truly produce some magnificent knocks when he’s playing in form. However, that has not been the case on a consistent basis. 

Why Rohit is playing in this fashion, is a topic for another day. Now let’s see why it is important, in the long term, for our team management to stick with Rohit Sharma in the Test Match squad.

His selection in the squad hasn’t been met with universal acclaim

Questionable Selection for New Zealand series:

There was a huge outrage in social media after he was selected in the squad for the home test series against New Zealand. People questioned his form, technique and temperament to sustain in test cricket. They were right, but only partially.

They don’t know what confidence and support can do to him. Even those who doubt his game will accept that he is already an ODI superstar. But it was not the same a few years ago. He was inconsistent in the Blue jersey too.
