  • She is still clocking 130Kmph and managing to trouble the best of the batters.

  • Rohit feels the pacer is a once-in-a-generation cricketer and India’s pride.

“I think she is one of India’s stalwarts in terms of what she has done for the country, lead bowler for India. Whenever I have seen her play, she has always shown so much passion for the country, which is good learning for all the young kids who are coming up and wanting to represent the country, whether it is women’s cricket or men’s cricket,” Rohit Sharma said.
