Former Australia fast bowler Glenn McGrath said that Rohit’s recent rediscovery of some form is good news for the Indian team ahead of the Asia Cup and the ICCT Twenty20 World Cup later this year.
The Indian skipper took a break after the IPL, which has helped him regain his touch with the bat. Since returning to the national team, he has scored two half-centuries while leading India to victories over England in ODIs and T20Is.
Rohit regaining his form ahead of the Asia Cup is crucial for the team, especially with Virat Kohli looking out of touch and KL Rahul missing the games due to a back injury after Covid.

The former Australian fast bowler believes that the return of a class player like Rohit to form is good news for the Indian team.
“That’s good news. He’s a class player. You want him to do well. You want to see senior players do well. You saw Shubman Gill get a good score the other day in the West Indies. The batsman in the West Indies. Doing their job,” McGrath told reporters.
Rohit scored an unbeaten 76 against England at the Oval to give India victory in the run chase. And recently, he scored 64 runs in the first T20I against West Indies, a match which India comfortably won by 68 runs.
McGrath, who took 563 Test and 381 ODI wickets, said he was impressed by the two new Indian seamers Parsed Krishna and Avesh Khan, two bowlers he closely supervised at the MRF Peace Foundation Academy.
“It was a proud moment to watch our 29 boys and ex-boys play in the recent IPL. Parsed and Awish are representing India in limited overs cricket, I am really proud of them… proud of all the boys,” ‘ said the Australian.
