The men in blue is currently leading 2-0 in the ongoing six-match ODI series against South Africa, but the Indian star opener Rohit Sharma has underperformed and struggling from form.


Rohit Sharma failed to create any impression in the ongoing series, as the opener has only scored 20 runs in Durban and 15 runs in the 2nd ODI at Centurion. 


However, Shikhar Dhawan isn’t much worried about his partners form, instead he came out defending Rohit Sharma saying he is striking the ball well and it’s just a matter of time, not a major concerned.


“I feel Rohit is playing well, looking at the way he is timing the ball. Even in the last match he was playing really good. Unfortunately he got out but, I don’t feel concerned about his batting at all. He has performed so well right from the Champions Trophy, till now. Sometimes it does happen that you don’t score runs. But what matters the most is how he is timing the ball. There is no problem at all with his form. I think he just needs one good innings, to solve all problems,”  Dhawan said to the media before the third ODI in Cape Town.


Shikhar also stated about his thoughts on playing the wrist spinners: "It is difficult to play wrist-spinners because they have the ability to turn the ball on flat tracks as well. And when the ball starts to turn, foreign player find it really difficult, because they are not used to playing such kind of turn. That can create a doubt in batsman's mind. That is why they are really effective.
"Out of the two spinners Kuldeep and Chahal, the former is more difficult to read as he is a chinaman bowler. As far as Chahal is concerned, not many players read his googly,"
he further added.


When asked about the dominance about the Indian team and the balance of the team.


"We are a really balanced side. The good part is we have youth, as well as experience in the side. The youngsters are also showing a lot of maturity. So that is our biggest strength. And in our ranks we have an all-rounder as well, which really helps us. That gives a lot of flexibility to the squad. So we can time the introduction of our spinners according to the situation of the match," the Dhawan concluded.
