What makes Rohit Sharma the gully boy of Indian Cricket

The India v/s South Africa test series is on right now. And among the many big things to come out of the series so far, Rohit Sharma is perhaps the biggest one. Before this series, he hadn’t even opened in domestic first class cricket. But in his first test opener, he was unbeaten on 115 runs at the end of the first day. He scored 12 fours and 5 sixes. It seems like a new star has emerged out of Indian cricket, but this was a long time coming.

In this episode, Daksh and Gaurav are joined by Indian Express sports correspondent Devendra Pandey, who has been tracking Rohit Sharma’s journey since the beginning and knows him like no other journalist does. He shares insights and stories about his rise, what he is like off the field and what makes him stand out from other Indian cricketers.
