    If Rohit makes fix place in test squad then no one can beat him breaking all the records.
    Because difference between him and virat kohli in test cricket is 7000 and that is the highest..
    If he covers up that then rohit will be the leading no 1 batsmen from team India.

    Rohithsharma is always best he has capability to break record of Sachintendulkar whereas virat cannot he has overconfidence
    And one more thing rohith played less matches compared to virat if he plays same matches as virat he would have broked world records .Recently in World Cup 5 centuries with 647 runs where as virat 0 century we lost World Cup because of virat
    Hence Rohith is always best Batman in world forever he lives people’s heart, virat is better.

    Technically Rohit is better coz bowlers best ball doesn’t fetch rohit’s wicketunless he himself throws away.Plays fearless cricket rather textbook cricket, strokemaker,best batsman against spin/pace,faces newball,many matchwinning knocks he came longway past2013 till day which shows the impact he created..He’s best batsman wrt Moderndaycric.merely by stats Runs/centuries isn’t a parameter to judge who’s better.Impact does!!

    Rohit Sharma ( Ro Superhit Sharma is far more better than Virat Chacha )

    Ro hit hai to mamla fit hai.

    Rohit Sharma is the best batsman.

    Rohit Sharma >>>>….∞ Virat Kohli.

    In fact, Ro should be the captain of the Indian cricket team.

    Ek samay RCB ke paas Gayle, Watson, De Villiers aur khud Birat the tab to jita nahin paye, sb khak jitayenge.

    Rohit ko captain bana dena chahiye agar test world cup haath mein chahiye aur T20 World Cup mein final mein pahunchna bhi hai to.

    Aaj tak Ro ki captaincy mein Mumbai Indians final nahin haari IPL mein.

    Virat kohli may have more no of records and lot of fame in international cricket but Rohit Sharma is always the backbone of Indian cricket team . India can be winning without virat kohli but winning a match without Rohit Sharma is very difficult . Rohit Sharma knows leadership than Virat Kohli in international cricket .So if I say overall both batting and leadership ,then Rohit Sharma is best.🙏🏻

    I say in odi Virat Kohli is the best batsmen and in t20s you say Rohit Sharma is the best batsmen agree but Virat Kohli is also king in t20 because of his batting average, fifties and his runs this proves that Virat Kohli is also better batsmen in t20s regardless of centuries.Then in test cricket Virat Kohli is king no comparison between them . In ipl as we know Virat Kohli is best batsmen for his achievements. Overall I will say that Virat Kohli is so far better batsmen than Rohit Sharma .Are you agree with me.

    खिलाड़ी अपनी मेहनत और लगन से बनता है, दोनों ही खिलाड़ी भारत देश के लिए क्रिकेट खेलते हैं, हर एक खिलाड़ी का अपना अपना तरीका होता है। रोहित भले ही आंकड़ों में कम दिख रहे हों लेकिन वे पूरी तरह क्रिकेट के लिए समर्पित हैं, जैसा कि सर सचिन तेंडुलकर थे। विराट में एक आक्रमकता है जो कि सिर्फ ऊपर जाने की चाह को प्रदर्शित करती है। विराट को भारतीय क्रिकेट में लगातार चांस मिला लेकिन रोहित को उतना नहीं।
