Rohit Sharma had taken a dig at the International Cricket Council's (ICC) pullout for not including himself among the four batsmen in the past, and if we look at the statistics, it proves that this particular shot of cricket is in play. There is no harm to the opener. The ICC tweeted pictures of West Indies' Viv Richards, Australia's Ricky Ponting, South Africa's Herschelle Gibbs and Indian captain Virat Kohli and asked who was the best to bridge them?
