Team India’s star opener Rohit Sharma failed in both innings of the first Test against England. Rohit could not do anything special in Australia and had scored only one half-century. In such a situation, it was expected that he would make a great debut in the home series. However he once again disappointed and failed to give the team a strong start.
Questions have been raised about Rohit’s form after Rohit’s failure to help Chennai batsmen consistently on the pitch. Many people on social media have advocated for giving Mayank Agarwal a chance in his place. In such a situation, let’s look at the figures of the last few matches of these two players.

After this, he scored 212 runs in the third match of the series in Ranchi. Rohit has scored 6, 21, 26, 52, 44, 7 and now 6 and 12 runs in the Test matches played thereafter.
