Rohit Sharma Faces Fan Backlash Over Team’s Performance in Asia Cup 2023

In the match against Bangladesh, Rohit Sharma has come under the scrutiny of fans for his own decisions. Cricket enthusiasts are questioning Rohit’s choices, as he has faced the brunt of fans’ frustration due to the performance of two players from his own team. These two players were given a place in the team and have been consistently underperforming, leading to allegations of favoritism against Rohit.

India had to face defeat against Bangladesh in a challenging match. Team India couldn’t manage to last the full 50 overs and fell short of the 266-run target, losing to Bangladesh by 6 runs in a match that went down to the wire. This loss in the Asia Cup 2023 did not impact India’s chances of reaching the finals. However, Captain Rohit Sharma has been under scrutiny due to a decision that is alleged to have led to favoritism towards certain players, who ended up performing poorly in the match against Bangladesh.

Cricket Enthusiasts have Criticized Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma made numerous changes to the team’s playing eleven against Bangladesh. However, cricket fans were particularly critical of the performance of only two players, who were chosen over Sanju Samson in the team. Among these two players, one is Suryakumar Yadav, who also secured a place in the World Cup team, but after their poor performance, it’s natural for fans to express their dissatisfaction.

Allegations of favoritism have been made against Rohit Sharma!

While Tilak Varma managed to score only 5 runs in 9 balls against Bangladesh, Suryakumar Yadav contributed just 26 runs before getting out. This has left fans displeased, and they are questioning Rohit Sharma’s selections, especially regarding both Varma and Yadav. Cricket enthusiasts have taken to social media to raise questions about why Sanju Samson wasn’t chosen and have accused Rohit Sharma of bias in team selection.

Question Marks Raised Over Selection of Suryakumar and Tilak

It’s worth mentioning that after the match against Bangladesh, Rohit Sharma stated that they are still considering Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma and that they need some more time. This was Tilak Varma’s first one-day international (ODI) match, and he hasn’t been a part of the World Cup squad. However, Suryakumar Yadav, who made it to the World Cup team, has been consistently underperforming in ODIs. He has struggled to make big scores, and the decision to leave out Sanju Samson has left cricket enthusiasts increasingly frustrated.
