COVID-19 has taken the world by storm. The corona-virus pandemic seems to have had a huge impact around the world and even cricket hasn’t been spared. All forms of cricket stand suspended or postponed at the moment. There’s barely any cricketing action going around the world.

Everybody seems to be taking precaution in order to prevent the spread of this virus. The world is on a work from home mode. So, in a different activity, let’s make an XI from the current crop of cricketers that work best from home and flaunt their expertise while playing on their home soil. That is– players who largely play well at home and have faltered in away conditions.

Here is the best work from home XI:

1. Rohit Sharma

Take a look at Rohit Sharma’s numbers at home in Test cricket, they are absolutely fabulous. He hasn’t been regular in the longest format for India and recently turned into an opener and that was in September last year. Since then, he has smashed three tons, including a double ton.

He had a fine run in the home season as he amassed 556 runs at an average of 92.66 as an opener across five Tests. However, Rohit’s home record, in general, is outstanding. The Mumbai batsman averages a staggering 88.33 from 20 Test innings at home. All his six Test tons have come in India and he has just five half-centuries in 33 innings away from home.

In fact, he has a massive difference of 62.01 in his home and away average. He’s scored just 716 runs in overseas conditions. There’s no doubt that Rohit is yet to get a chance at the top of the order away from home but there’s no doubt that he is a beast at home irrespective of the position he bats.
