Following Rohit Sharma's amazing innings of 209 in the seventh One-Day International (ODI) between India and Australia at Bangalore, George Bailey has said that the Indian batsman can fill in the void left by Sachin Tendulkar.

Bailey was quoted by PTI, ""It was an extraordinary innings. He has had a wonderful series. He is obviously flourishing at the top of the order. He would certainly be one who is in the mix for that spot that will open up after the great man [Sachin Tendulkar] departs in a couple of Tests."

It was extraordinary. I think the record was smashed for most sixes in a game. I thought Rohit batted beautifully. He summed it up. He wasn't actually that quick early on. I looked at it when he brought his 100 up and he was probably only run a ball. He just got a bit busier after that," Bailey said.
