Rohit Sharma wants to establish his career in the West Indies tour

Indian batsman, Rohit Sharma, is looking forward to establish his career in the ongoing ODI series against the West Indies.

He is one of the most experienced middle order batsmen of a second-string Indian cricket team. Twenty-four-year-old player has taken this challenge to cement his career in the national squad.

Rohit Sharma said that he wanted to make his career and secured his reputation in the ongoing ODI series against the host team. He was disappointed because of his drop out from the Indian squad that was announced for the 2011 ICC World Cup.

In his four years of cricket career, he has experienced many ups and downs. So far he has played 62 ODI matches and 21 Twenty20 internationals.

While people around the world are criticizing the Indian Premier League (IPL), Rohit Sharma backed it saying that it was a tremendous boon for him as he played well in the first ODI match on 6 June 2011. He also said that because of his condition he could adjust with the weather. He scored 68 runs from 75 balls.

According to Rohit Sharma, the Queen's Park pitch was not favorable for the Indian batsmen as it was not coming on to the bat. However, being patient helped him overcome this problem.

As many senior players are not playing in the series, Rohit would have to handle a huge pressure.

While the current Indian cricket team is being criticized for their weak opening pair, Rohit talked in favor of Shikhar Dhawan and Parthiv Patel.
