India has played relentless cricket in the recent past and they would like to continue their good form going in the ODI showpiece.

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma is also celebrating his 32nd birthday today. Hence, the cricket fraternity is pouring in the wishes for the Hitman.

On the other hand, Rohit Sharma revealed that Virender Sehwag used to give his input MS Dhoni when the latter was the captain of the India National Cricket Team.

“When MS (Dhoni) was the captain, he had Sehwag, Sachin paaji and other senior players in the team to help him and give advice when needed. Now, since we have been in the team for so long, it is our responsibility to help the captain,” Rohit said.
