No show from Rohit Sharma in T20 World Cup final

Rohit Sharma’s record of poor outings in finals of ICC events continues with his latest knock against South Africa. India needed both openers Kohli and Rohit to go all guns blazing in order to give a strong start without losing wickets.

So far, Rohit’s highest score for India in a final is 47 runs which came against Australia in the ODI World Cup final where the Men in Blue faced a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Pat Cummins and co.
