ICC Champions Trophy: Rohit Sharma might fail as opener, says Azharuddin

ICC Champions Trophy: Rohit Sharma might fail as opener, says Azharuddin. Expressing his concern over Rohit Sharma's form in the ongoing IPL 2017, former India captain Mohammed Azharuddin feels the India batsman might struggle opening innings at the Champions Trophy 2017. Azharuddin did not like the Mumbai Indians skipper's decision of batting in the middle-order in the IPL for that will affect his performance in the upcoming ICC event where he'll open the innings for India. Azharuddin said, "When you are an opening batsman, you should open. I always feel that the best players should play the first 20 overs. If your best batsmen are playing after 8-10 overs in T20s and after 30 overs in a 50-overs game, there's no use. Rohit Sharma is a good player, and I was very surprised to see him bat at No. 3 or 4 or 5 for Mumbai."
