AB de Villiers, who played cricket in South Africa in the past, has showered admiration on Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian cricket team, adding that “he is a fighter” and “never backs down to anyone.” This statement was made on September 15 in New Delhi.
In the current Asia Cup, which is still going on, Rohit has already hammered three half-centuries, one against Nepal, one against Pakistan, and one against Sri Lanka. This indicates that he is in an excellent vein of form.
In the one-day international match that ended in a stalemate against Sri Lanka, Rohit Sharma accomplished a monumental goal that catapulted him into an exclusive group of players. He overtook the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Sourav Ganguly, Brian Lara, Chris Gayle, MS Dhoni, and Rahul Dravid to become the sixth Indian to score 10,000 runs in one-day internationals. This also made him the second quickest member to achieve the milestone after Virat Kohli.
“Rohit was the fourth slowest to reach 2000 runs, but the second fastest to reach 10000.” That certainly qualifies as a comeback, doesn’t it? He has a significant amount of regard in my eyes. When I first saw him play, I immediately had the impression that this particular player has some unique qualities. The aspect about him that I like the most is the fact that he has always had a competitive nature, even from a very early age. On his YouTube channel, De Villiers described his friend as someone who “would not back down to anyone.”
De Villiers also remembered a match in which Rohit faced off against South African pacers like as Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel. He added, “I think of a Test match in Durban where he just wouldn’t stand back to Dale Steyn or Morne Morkel or any of our fast bowlers.” He was always looking you in the eyes. In the event that someone chimed in. He would go right up in their face and stick his chest out. That was something that appealed to me from the beginning.
