‘Pretty Excited’: Rohit Sharma on India T20 World Cup captaincy

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma is delighted to take the lead for the first time in a World Cup. He stated in an interview on the BCCI website: “Firstly, it is a great honor for the captain. This will be my first World Cup as captain, so I’m pretty excited about that. It also gives us a great opportunity to come here and do something special. Every time you come for the World Cup, it’s a great feeling. The guys are pretty pumped up. We had a great preparation in Perth.”

Rohit also spoke about how India will fare in the tournament, saying: “It’s a big event, but at the same time, we’ve made a constant habit of not talking about it too much because it’s important to be in the present. and think about what you need to do that day, that will enable us and help us do what we want to do on race day.”

The righthanded batter also spoke about the conditions in Australia. “Australia will be a different challenge. It was important for us to get used to the conditions. Some of the guys haven’t come to Australia before so we wanted to get here a little earlier to get used to the conditions. Even though it will be a challenge, when I look at the whole group, they are quite excited,” said Rohit.

The Men in Blue will face Pakistan on October 23 and Rohit admitted the hype surrounding the match.

“When we play against Pakistan, we know it will be a blockbuster. People will want to come out to watch the game and feel the atmosphere. They would of course also like to enjoy the cricket, but at the same time the atmosphere in the stadium for the fans and spectators, even those watching from home, is quite exciting. For us as players it is obviously a big game, staring at our campaign, but at the same time we want to keep ourselves relaxed and focus on what we need to do as individuals because that will be key for us. If individuals can keep themselves calm and composed in the game, we will get the results we are looking for,” he said.

He added: “It’s been a while since we won the World Cup. The motive and the whole thought process is of course to win the World Cup, but we know that we have to do a lot of things right to get there. So step by step for us. We cannot think too far ahead; You really can’t think about semi-finals and finals from now on. You just need to focus on every team you come across and do your best and prepare for it. Our focus will be to prepare well against each team and make sure we are moving in the right direction.”
