India’s record-breaking opener Rohit Sharma has said that he is ready to shoulder the responsibility of a senior batsman in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy starting December 4th. This would be Rohit’s third tour to Australia and he feels that his experience would very much come in handy on the fast pitches of Australia.
Rohit was quoted saying:
“I have prepared well and I am looking forward to the challenge. When you’re playing a Test series against Australia, you have to take them head on and be confident in your approach.
“Mentally, you have to be strong but you also have to be positive. You have to be on top of your game and not let the opposition get the upper hand.”
During an event that took place to felicitate his record-breaking 264 run knock, Rohit described it as a mixture of nerve, shock, awe and most importantly self-belief.
“It was a mixture of nerves, shock and awe. It took some time for me to settle in, but once I was in, I wanted to make sure I could make the most of every delivery and give the team a competitive total. It was incredibly special.
“Honestly, I wasn’t thinking of breaking any records. All I wanted to do was make the most of every delivery and get my team the biggest possible total. When I crossed 219, I heard my teammates cheering from the dressing room and I was confused as to what had happened. Then I realised I hit the highest ODI score, but I put that out of my mind and faced the next delivery.”
