Can Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli reach the milestones against England?
Given how talented the two Indian batsmen are, they should reach the milestone in Leeds. Both of them, especially Rohit, looked in great touch at Lord’s. Rohit has shown great patience in this series so far. He is hungry for a hundred, and as he will get two innings to bat in Leeds, he should complete 15,000 runs.
Same way, Virat will have two innings to aggregate 63 runs and complete 23,000 international runs. Kohli would love to reach the landmark and end his century drought as well. It will be interesting to see how the two batsmen perform.
