Being Mentally Strong Is The Key Feels Mohit Sharma
The Indian Premier League has seen young talent perform wonderfully and make it to their respective national teams. One such talent is India’s Mohit Sharma who performed notably well for the Chennai Super Kings and thus gained a spot in the Indian national team. He also featured in the Indian team for the ICC World Cup in 2015 and has 13 wickets to his name in the tournament. But since then Mohit’s form has not been up to the mark and he has been struggling to get back his place in the Indian team. Despite being named in the ICC world T20 squad this year, Mohit Sharma failed to get a game in the prestigious tournament.
The right arm pacer, who his currently Haryana’s captain in the Raji Trophy, hails India’s pool of fast bowlers and feels he needs to be mentally stronger to regain his lost spot in the Indian national team.
Mohit Sharma said, “You may be away from cricket physically but mentally you’re always involved in the game. It’s really great to have a pool of fast bowlers these days. It’s always a healthy competition and we are always in constant touch with ourselves off the field. I always keep talking to Shami and Bhuvi, it’s really motivating”
“I did not compromise on my rehab and tried to ensure that I don’t put on weight. Glad that I’m able to add a couple of yards to my bowling,”
Sharma is currently concentrating on fitness and wants to do away with the injuries which according to him is the least wanted thing by a cricketer. The bowler also feels that the injuries have helped him become mentally stronger and his last season has been pretty good. Bharath Arun was praised by Mohit as working with Arun did him a lot of good.
“Bharath Arun has always inspired me. He always stresses on strengthening the mental aspect. After all, cricket is all about becoming mentally stronger and Arun has played a big role in this”
The Haryana skipper’s primary concern now is to take his team to the knockouts than becoming an all-rounder.
Sharma was quoted, “Becoming seamer all-rounder should happen as a natural progression. If the captain is convinced then gradually I would be promoted from Nos 10 to 9 to 7 or 8. But all my life I’ve concentrated on my bowling. If I am able to contribute to the team as a batsman, the captain would naturally notice this. I don’t want to run after it or do it consciously. It should happen in a steady manner. Now I’m leading my state and so I’m thinking more about the team, keeping the individual ambition aside. The focus firmly on taking my team to the quarters.”
