India’s vice-captain Rohit Sharma said that the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia is still a long way to go. Rohit believes that the team needs to focus its energy on winning the ongoing series against the West Indies. It’s one-all in the current series and the decider will be played at Wankhede Stadium on the 11th of December.
The Indian opener believes that the team needs to focus on winning the matches and the composition of the team will take care of itself. India hasn’t been at their best in the shortest format of the game and they need to pull up their socks. Furthermore, the Virat Kohli-led side has been sloppy in the field in the two matches against the West Indies.
India needs to pull up its socks.
Rohit Sharma said in the press conference, “See, I don’t want to keep saying that we are trying to build a squad for the (T20) World Cup. It is still a long long way ahead. We just need to focus on winning the series and that will keep us in a good state, moving forward.”
On the other hand, Rohit added that the team needs to focus on the process of winning matches. The Indian team needs to tick the right boxes as they haven’t been at their best in the shortest format.
“If we keep winning games, keep doing the right things on the field, the composition of the team will take care (by itself),” he said.
Meanwhile, Rohit added that the Indian team is not scared of any team. Rohit accepted the fact that the West Indies were better than them in the second game and they will try to deliver their best in the decider.
“We are not scared of any team. Like I said they were good on that particular day and they won the game, as simple as that. If we are good, we know we can win any game at any given condition,” Sharma said.
The decider of the three-match series will be played at Wankhede Stadium on the 11th of December. Rohit Sharma has had two quiet games and he would like to be at his best in the all-important decider.
