Mumbai: Ex-India batsman and former Mumbai Ranji Trophy coach Pravin Amre sees shades of swashbuckling cricketer Virender Sehwag in Rohit Sharma, who on Thursday slammed a maiden unbeaten Test ton on debut against the West Indies in the opening match of the two-game series in Kolkata.
"Personally I believe he has got talent like Virender Sehwag. Sehwag also came up with the reputation of a shorter format player. If you see his record, it is phenomenal when it comes to the Test. Rohit is also (of) the same character.
"Because he has got that many strokes. If they spend 2-3 sessions, then they have to get a 100 in any format," Amre told PTI.
