Just how great is Rohit Sharma?

Surely, the only player to have scored three double-centuries in one-day international cricket will command a spot in the greatest ODI XI of all time. Or not? ... Or not yet?

In this edition of The Cricket Pod, Chitrabhanu Kadalayil and Paul Radley discuss the legacy of India's stand-in captain, who has been outstanding with the bat at the ongoing Asia Cup in the UAE.

Listen here:

Also in this episode:

  • We speak to Mohammad Isam, ESPNCricinfo's Dhaka correspondent, about the probability of the Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20 tournament being held in the UAE in 2019, and why two of the national team's selectors were left out of the board's decision to pick replacement players during the Asia Cup.
  • Is the T10 League already in trouble in only its second season?
  • Sri Lanka have sacked their captain. But will that solve all their problems?
