New Delhi, Aug 17: India's Rohit Sharma, who has made a name for himself as one of the most destructive openers in the shorter formats, says he will not mind opening in Test cricket as well if he's asked to.
Rohit is the only batsman to score three double centuries in ODI cricket and all three have been scored with him batting as an opener. Rohit has also played 25 Test matches for India and has scored 1479 runs at shade under 40 per innings. The batsman, however, is currently out of favour in the five-day format and is not part of the Indian Test squad.
With the trio of KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay struggling in the ongoing series against England in England, Rohit was posed a question if he would like to open the innings in Test matches too.
"Look, I have never been offered (to open the innings in Tests) yet but I am open to anything as in whatever the team management wants. I never thought I will be an opener in ODIs when I started playing or when I was playing for India. But it happened along the way, so I (want to) keep my options open. No option is shut for me, so if the opportunity comes, I will take it," Rohit told mediapersons at a promotional event.
