Rohan Gavaskar has to always carry the impression of being the “not so famous son” of a famous father. Sunil Gavaskar had a rock steady temperament and near impeccable skill which have not been reflected in Rohan as much as he would have liked. He bats left handedly and in a more attacking fashion and is more vulnerable than his father. He also bowls a slow and gentle left arm spin and has made vital dismissals for Bengal. His first class average is such that he is on the periphery for high honors. In 2001-02 he was appointed the captain of Bengal and as a leader, he had 2 unimpressive seasons. For a long time, he was in contention for the national one day slot. Finally, he got a chance in the 2003-04 VB series against Australia. However, he was not selected for the next tour of Pakistan.
