Meanwhile, the Indian team hasn’t done well enough in Australia. They have always come close to victory in their previous tours but unfortunately, ended up on the wrong side of the things. However, Rohit Sharma feels it wouldn’t be the same this time around.
We want to make it count – Rohit Sharma
The flamboyant batsman quoted the team is in a positive frame of mind and are determined to do well this time. Last time, India came pretty close to the victory, but the lack of depth in batting dented them dearly.
Rohit Sharma also speaks on the things which would certainly put them under pressure. He went on to say tackling Australian fast bowlers will be a tough task, as they can get the handy bounce from the wicket.

“It’s the one place that we want to leave our mark and do well as a unit. The last time we played Test series here – although we lost two games and we drew one game – I thought there were a few close games being played. We want to make it count this time around. There’s a really good feeling inside the group in all three formats – the motivation of the team is to just try and seize all the moments and win tournaments. When you do well in places like Australia you feel good as a team,” Rohit Sharma quoted to cricket.com.au.
“It’s either Perth or Brisbane. India has always played at Perth or Brisbane and this time around we’re at Perth. Those two conditions are obviously very challenging. Australia has bowlers who are very tall and extract those conditions, use them to their advantage. Indian batsman generally is not that tall. Obviously, it’s not that easy for us but, again, all the guys are quite determined to change things around this time,” he added.
