Ahmedabad: India’s vice-captain Rohit Sharma says that Team India is ready to make a big difference in the 5-match T20 series against England. Rohit Sharma said that his role will not change and he will do the same as he used to bat.
Rohit’s style will not change
Rohit said, ‘If we bat first, we will give the team a good start. Nothing has changed for me. The attitude will be the same while chasing the target, but the mindset will change because you have to assess many things. Rohit Sharma scored 49 off 144 balls in the fourth Test against England, but he said it was according to the circumstances. Rohit Sharma said, ‘I only scored 49 runs, but played about 150 balls. Personally, it was a big win for me.
Who will be Rohit’s partner?
It will be interesting to see who among KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan will start the innings along with Rohit Sharma. On this, Rohit said, ‘We cannot disclose our combination. We will have to wait till the match. India have picked some new faces in the team for the T20 series, while fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been given rest, as Team India is busy preparing for the T20 World Cup. Rohit Sharma believes that Team India is not seeing this series as a dress rehearsal of the T20 World Cup.
Focus on series more than T20 World Cup
Rohit Sharma said, ‘Team India is focused on winning. We will not see it as a dress rehearsal of the T20 World Cup. We are not thinking that far ahead and are only focusing on winning the series. Rohit Sharma said, ‘If the focus is on the present, then it will benefit itself in the future. It is a long series and it is important to see where we are as a team and player.
