Indian captain Rohit Sharma has not been at his best in the T20 World Cup 2022 so far. 

The 35 year old opener has scored just 89 runs in five innings of the World Cup so far. 

India will take on England in the semi finals of the World Cup and they will be hoping to book their place in the finals of the competition. 

The Men in Blue could certainly use key contributions from their captain today. In the other semi finals, Pakistan beat New Zealand to reach the final. 

Former Indian spinner and World Cup winner Harbhajan Singh has now claimed that Rohit Sharma could score big runs for his side against England. 

The former spinner cited the example of Babar Azam, who played a vital knock against New Zealand in the semi finals of the World Cup yesterday. There is no reason why Rohit Sharma cannot play a similar innings at the Adelaide later today. 

As quoted by Hindustan Times, Harbhajan said

“What we saw today with what Babar and Rizwan did, big players in big games, they go on to perform and Rohit is a big, big player and we all want him to score runs. When he scores runs, it feels like he’s batting on a different surface, no matter how difficult that surface is. We all want him to come into form and he’s been practising and trying. Things didn’t work so far, but it doesn’t mean it won’t work tomorrow. Tomorrow might be his day and when his day comes, India are going to win."
