- Rohit Sharma said that the achievements made as a team always matter a lot
- Limited overs captain said happy after scoring a century but WC win is very special
- Rohit told the plan said our effort will be to reduce the pressure on the players
Rohit Sharma, the captain of the limited overs format of the Indian team, has admitted that winning the World Cup trophy is the biggest goal of any player or captain. Rohit said that it feels good after scoring a century but the feeling that comes after winning the World Cup cannot be compared with anything else.
On Wednesday, Rohit Sharma was also made the captain of the Indian ODI team. After the T20 World Cup 2021, Virat Kohli left the captaincy of this format and has already taken over the command of Rohit. Now it seems that Rohit will lead the team in the 2022 T20 World Cup to be held in Australia and the 50-over World Cup to be held in India in 2023.
In a chat show ‘Backstage with Boria’, Rohit said that cricket is a team game and winning big championships is the ultimate goal of any player.
The 34-year-old said, “When you play a game your aim is to achieve the best. You want to win the biggest championship. No matter how many centuries you score but you always want to win the championship because it is the combined effort and achievement of the whole team. After all we all play team sports. The achievement that you achieve as a team is the best for me.
India have not won an ICC tournament since winning the Champions Trophy under Mahendra Singh Dhoni in 2013. The 2021 T20 World Cup was very bad for the team. The team could not reach the semi-finals after surpassing the Super 12.
Rohit admitted that the ultimate goal of the team is to win the World Cup, but at the same time, he also said that how you prepare for a tournament also matters a lot.
No matter how many centuries you score but you always want to win the championship because it is the combined effort and achievement of the whole team. After all we all play team sports. For me the achievement that you achieve as a team is the best.
Rohit said, ‘Of course, there are some World Cups coming up. We will keep an eye on them. But we have to do a lot as a team to win those championships. We have the team, players and support to achieve them. Now he has to get it. What we do before the World Cup matters a lot. When you go to play that tournament, there is a lot of pressure on the players and performance in the team. Along with this, people’s expectations are also high.
Rohit further said that he will try to reduce the pressure on the players so that they can focus on the target.
“One thing I would like to do would be to at least reduce the pressure from the players. We can do this by correcting the little things. We will try to give him the security and freedom that he can go out and play freely. We will start like this and then see how things turn out in the next two-three months.
