Internet Desk: Indian opener Rohit Sharma is a better batsman than Virat Kohli in the limited overs matches Sandeep Patil, former Indian cricket team chief selector said during a chat show on a TV news channel.

"Virat Kohli fans might not like it but I have to say Rohit Sharma is currently the better batsman. Virat is definitely a great batsman, no doubt about it. He is India’s best Test batsman but when it comes to limited overs cricket, Rohit is ahead of him," Patil added," Patil told.

In the recently concluded ODI and T20I series against Sri Lanka Rohit broke many records with his bat. While regular captain was away from the series to tie the knot with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.

Rohit scored brilliant double ton during the ODI series against Sri Lanka in the second match and also slammed his second T20I ton in just 35 deliveries which is the joint fastest as David Miller earlier did the same Against Bangladesh.

But what's striking is that there is very little to choose between Kohli and Rohit in terms of numbers in the 50-over format of the game since 2015. Both Rohit and Kohli have slammed 11 centuries each during this time, however, it is the India opener who has taken less innings to reach there.

Rohit has slammed 11 tons in mere 48 ODIs that he played since 2015, whereas Kohli has done so in 56 matches. But Kohli leads the race in terms of runs as he has scored 2822 runs (12 fifties) while Rohit has aggregated 2672 (11 fifties) during this time.

Moreover, he led the Indian team to series wins in both ODI and T20I against the Islanders to further enhance his reputation as a leader of the side.
