Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh has compared Rohit Sharma to a Pakistan batting legend.
"I think when he came into the Indian team, he looked like somebody who had a lot of time," Yuvraj said during a YouTube chat show.
"He reminded me of Inzamam-ul-Haq, because, when he batted, Inzi had a lot of time (to play the bowlers),"
Yuvi said that Rohit reminded him of Inzamam-ul-Haq in his early days.
The flamboyant India vice-captain who made his ODI debut in June 2007 and featured in his first T20I during the World Cup the same year, is now considered a limited overs specialist.
Asked about his first impression of Rohit, Yuvraj said the swashbuckling batsman seemed like somebody who had a lot of time to play his strokes.
Inzamam, a veteran of 120 Tests and over 300 One-day Internationals, is known to remain calm under pressure situations. He captained Pakistan from 2003-07.
