Rohit vs Mathews: The biggest reason for Team India’s 100% win record in the World Cup 2023 is captain Rohit Sharma. The stormy style in which he is giving a good start to Team India forms the basis of victory. He is also the batsman who scored the most runs for Team India in this World Cup. There will be special attention on him in the India-Sri Lanka match to be held today (November 2). However, here he will have to overcome the challenge of a Sri Lankan bowler.
Actually, Sri Lanka’s Angelo Mathews can come in the way of the tremendous form of Indian captain Rohit Sharma. This fact has come to light by looking at the previous head to head statistics of these two. Rohit Sharma’s bat becomes completely silent in front of Mathews. The situation is that Mathews has sent Rohit to the pavilion seven times in ODI cricket. These include four times bowled, twice LBW and once caught by the wicketkeeper.
Rohit and Mathews have faced each other in 31 ODI matches. Here Rohit has scored against Mathews at an average of 14.71. That means Mathews has dismissed Rohit after spending every 14 runs in front of him. Twice Mathews has sent Rohit to the pavilion even on zero. Rohit Sharma even forgets to hit sixes on Mathews’ balls. His strike rate in front of Mathews is only 58.85.
Strong comeback of Angelo Mathews
Angelo Mathews has played only two matches so far in the World Cup 2023. He was not included in the Sri Lankan squad earlier but later injuries to three players back to back opened the way for Mathews. Mathews surprised everyone with his excellent bowling as soon as he entered the World Cup 2023. At present, in this World Cup, he has taken 2 wickets after spending 32 runs in 8 overs. In such a situation, this veteran player can present a good challenge for Rohit Sharma this time too.
