His captaincy stint with Mumbai Indians (MI) helped him reap a lot of success in his career and Rohit Sharma will be leading the Indian limited-overs squads in the upcoming home series against West Indies. One of the finest openers at the highest level, Rohit is also seen as the front-runner to be Virat Kohli’s successor in the longest format of the game and handling the Indian team’s leadership across the formats.

Former Indian spinner, Harbhajan Singh has huge praises for the batting of Rohit Sharma, saying that the 34-year-old opener’s talent makes batting look easy. The 41-year-old Harbhajan, who recently hanged his boots from all formats of the game, picked Rohit Sharma as his favorite batter across all three formats.

During a recnet chat on Sports Today, Harbhajan Singh said, “Favourite batsman: Rohit Sharma. Whether T20, one-day cricket, Test cricket, when Rohit is batting, he is unbelievable. He has got so much of time, he makes batting look very, very easy.”

With an experience of 43 Tests, 227 ODIs, and 119 T20Is, Rohit Sharma is the only player to have three ODI double hundreds under his belt. He’s also got four centuries in the shortest format and a double hundred in Test cricket.

A five-time IPL winning skipper, Rohit Sharma will be leading the Indian team in the multi-format series against West Indies, beginning in Ahmedabad on February 6. He was assigned the role after the BCCI decided to have a single white-ball skipper.

He further elaborated, “I think Rohit is probably the best batsman in world cricket, with all due respect to others like Virat Kohli and KL Rahul. They are equally good as well but when Rohit plays, he is a different level altogether. So Rohit is my favorite batsman.”

When asked about his favorite bowling option, Harbhajan Singh went on to pick the fast bowling spearhead, Jasprit Bumrah. Besides Rohit, Jasprit Bumrah has also emerged as one of the frontrunners for the role. The 28-year-old speedster had served as a deputy to KL Rahul in the Johannesburg Test and in the ODI series in South Africa.
