Former Australian speed footballer Glenn McGrath said the recent rediscovery of a form comes as good news for the Indian team ahead of the upcoming Asian Cup and T20 World Cup later this year.
The Indian captain took a break after the IPL, which helped him get his touch back with the bat. Since returning to the national team, he has scored half a century while leading India to victory over England in ODI and T20I matches.
Rohit’s recovery ahead of the Asian Cup is crucial for the team, especially with no contact between Virat Kohli and KL Rahul who missed matches due to a thigh injury followed by a virus infection.

The former Australian footballer believes that the return of a top-tier player like Rohit in good shape is good news for the Indian side.
“It’s good news. He’s a top-tier player. You want him to do well. You want to see the great players do well. I saw Shubman Gill get a good grade that day in the West Indies. The batsmen are doing their job,” McGrath told reporters. in the West Indies.
Rohit scored 76 unbeaten against England at The Oval which propelled India to victory in the chasing run. Most recently, he played 64 strikes in his first T20I against the West Indies, a match which India comfortably won by 68 points.
McGrath, who has taken 563 Tests and 381 ODI wickets, said he was impressed by the new Indian options Prased Krishna and Avish Khan, two players he has monitored closely at the MRF Academy.
“Seeing 29 of our boys and ex-boys play in the last IPL was a proud moment. The Australian said Prased and Avish represent India in limited cricket, and I’m really proud of them… Proud of all the boys.”
