Visakhapatnam, 1 Oct : India captain Virat Kohli said on Tuesday that Rohit Sharma will be given time to grow into his new role as Test opener. Rohit has been a succesfull opener in limited-overs cricket, but this will be the first time he does so in Tests, a format in which he has not had as much success.

“We are in no rush as far as Rohit opening the innings is concerned,” Kohli said on the eve of the start of the first Test against South Africa in Visakhapatnam. “He will be given space to find his own game and come into his own.”

Kohli said that while the team hopes Rohit can eventually play his natural attacking game at the top of the order, there is no expectation of him having to follow a certain template.

“In Test cricket it’s about finding your game in different pitches. We are not looking at a certain kind of display from Rohit. Yes, his strength is to take the game forward. Someone like Viru bhai (Virender Sehwag) used to do it for the team for a long period. It’s not like someone would have told him you need to get a hundred before lunch. It was basically his natural instinct and once he felt comfortable in his game he could demolish attacks and really put the team in poll position.
