Asia Cup: Lee backs Rohit and Dhawan to rise to occasion in Kohli’s absence

first_imgFormer Australia pacer Brett Lee believes that India’s stand-in captain Rohit Sharma and vice-captain Shikhar Dhawan will deliver in the absence of Virat Kohli in this year’s Asia Cup in UAE.”I believe Rohit Sharma will get the best out of himself and also the team because he has been given that extra bit of responsibility to lead the Indian side for the Asia Cup. We know that the great Virat Kohli is being rested for the tournament, so that allows Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit to be pushed up,” Lee was quoted as saying by Star Sports.Lee also dismissed talks about Rohit struggling against left-arm fast bowlers and said that he will dominate in the UAE because the wickets suit him.”There is a lot of talk about how Rohit can’t face left arm fast bowlers — with the swing and the ball going across him but I don’t necessarily agree with that but what I can say is that in the UAE it will be a different style he will have to face.”Yes, they will bring on the left arm fast bowlers to target him but I believe on the lower and slower wickets in UAE, Rohit will dominate,” Lee said.”We saw it a couple of times during the IPL that he got out trying to play the pull shot against the short ball. Yes, there will be nothing compared to the tracks in the UAE, it won’t be like what we have seen in England and it won’t be like what we have seen on the green, grassy wickets in India so I believe the lower and slower wicket will help him out.”advertisementHowever, in his assessment of Dhawan, he said that the southpaw needs to adjust a few things in his technique to succeed in UAE.”Dhawan has come to form during his bout in England but will have to adjust a few things in his techniques to ensure he will be playing on the surfaces that will be conducive to him.”He has played on grounds all around India that are low and slow in recent years, and I think the tracks in UAE will suit him, allowing him to play through the line of the ball. I believe he will have a great Asia Cup,” Lee said.The Asia Cup begins on September 15 and India will play their first match on September 19 against Hong Kong, followed by a match the very next day against arch-rivals Pakistan.last_img read more
