SHARMA is a capable batsmen.He can b considered as future Dravid in the making.India's tri-series squad is packed with youngsters but promising middle order batsman Rohit Sharma refuses that the absence of seniors is putting extra pressure on the youngsters. Sharma admitted that a few youngsters in the side, including him, were in the squad at the expense of some well-known seniors such as Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly, but they were taking it as a challenge to make themselves counted. "I wouldn't say it's pressure. It's more of a challenge for us youngsters to do well," Sharma said. The Mumbai batsman reminded that the young brigade had proven itself in the Twenty20 World Cup and said the players were trying their best to make their presence felt in the on-going series as well. "We won the Twenty20 tournament without seniors and we would try to do well in this present series too," he said after the team had nets this morning. Sharma, who made 29 and 0 in the first two games of the tri-series, said more opportunities should be given to youngsters to establish.

I don't know why people always compared a player with others. Why can't we consider something original. Definitely he is a very good player. He has a lot of talent. And he proved it quite a few times. But still he has to go a long way and to compare him with such great players ace a childish act. He is playing well but he has to learn a lot which he will do as the game's experience and only after a series or so we can judge how could he is for the team and how much performance he can deliver consistently for the Indian team. But overall it seems he has the raw talent and he should be nurtured so that he can be a fine prospect of the future.
