After missing out on Kieron Pollard, New South Wales are said to have their eyes on Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik. If something comes of it, both players – currently out of India’s 50-over picture – would benefit hugely from the experience. Karthik has impressed me each time I’ve seen him play for the Delhi Daredevils, and Rohit seems to revel in the format. Australian pitches are nowhere near as pace-and-bounce friendly as they used to be, and I can see both men making a mark if given the chance. They’ll certainly become better players as a result.
