“It has led to superstitions. The t-shirt that I wore in one of the Tests against SA, I continued wearing it in the 2nd session too. There is a feel-good factor about such things. It’s been like that with me since childhood. Even in the World Cup, after scoring 100 vs SA, I used the same socks in all the rest games,” Rohit told Sports Tak.

“It was a good breakthrough. I have said it already that the plan (to open in Tests) was being discussed for some time between the captain, coach and the selectors. Mentally, when I was not playing Tests, I used to prepare as an opener – like watching videos of great Test openers. I believe I have got a good platform but it’s in my hands to not let go of that opportunity,” he added.
“Initially I was a middle-order batsman, even during the start of my ODI career. But in India especially when the ball gets old, shot-making becomes difficult. It doesn’t mean that I haven’t got opportunities to bat a lot of overs. But while opening, if you are through the initial phase, whether at home or away, you can only get out by your own mistake,” said Rohit Sharma.
