Ireland are a good team and we’ll have to play well to beat them says Mohit Sharma

Sidharth Gulati / 09 March 2015

Indian seamer Mohit Sharma has said that The Men in Blue are in no mood to relax after securing a quarter-final spot in the ICC World Cup 2015 and has made it clear that the team is ready to face Ireland, who are just one point behind from securing a place in the last eight. 

Mohit said: 

“Ireland have a chance to qualify. They have a good team. We will have to play well to beat them, and we’ll try to do it.”

Mohit also warned that the defending champions’ seam attack will only be judged fully once they are exposed to an end of an innings assault.

“We have performed well as a unit,” said the 26-year-old right-arm fast bowler.

“But there is no limit to doing well, I feel that we have not faced the pressure of the slog overs and there is a lot to do.”

He also said that the shorter boundaries in New Zealand will not be a concern despite India having played all four games so far in Australia, at Adelaide, Melbourne and twice in Perth.

“It makes a little bit of difference in the mindset of the bowlers. You have to adjust your line and length but it’s the same for both teams. We don’t want to disturb our momentum by thinking that, so we will concentrate on our strengths,” Mohit added.
