Indian opener Rohit Sharma had a memorable Test series against England. Sharma was the highest run-scorer for the side, scoring 368 runs in four Tests in England at an average of 52.57. He also notched up his maiden overseas Test hundred during the series. Despite a productive series, Rohit feels that his best in Test matches is yet to come.

During an interview, when Rohit was asked if it was the best he had ever played, the MI skipper didn’t agree.

"It was a good one considering where I was standing in my Test career. It's not my best series. I feel my best is yet to come," Rohit was quoted as saying in a PTI report.

Rohit revealed that he utilised the time before the WTC final and worked on his technique.

"I utilised the time before the World Test Championship final in Southampton to figure what sort of technique and mindset is required. I was pretty happy and would like to take it further," he added.

In my eyes, we have won England series 2-1: Rohit

Although the series between England and India was cancelled just before the final Test, Rohit Sharma considers that Team India won the series 2-1.

“I don't know what has happened in the last Test match, whether we won the series or we are going to play that one-off Test match later. I think in my eyes, we have won the series 2-1. That's how I would like to look at it," the Indian opener said.

Notably, Team India were leading the 5-Test series 2-1 at the end of the 4th Test after securing wins at Lord’s and The Oval. The 5th Test was due to be played in Manchester. However, the COVID-19 cases inside the Indian camp forced both cricket boards to cancel the game, and the series result remains 2-1 with the decision on last match yet to be taken.
