ADELAIDE: Indian skipper Rohit Sharma understands the criticism for his disappointing figure in a tough game but will not appreciate it if he or another player fails in a tough game.
Rohit has endeavored to make a significant contribution to the All India over the years by competing in knockout matches at ICC events. He scored 29 against Sri Lanka in the 2014 World T20 final and 34 against Australia in the 2015 ODI World Cup semi-final.
He scored 43 against West Indies in the semi-finals of the 2016 T20 World Cup and failed to open an account against Pakistan in the 2017 Champions Trophy title match. Rohit took just one wicket against New Zealand in the quarter-finals of the 2019 ODI World Cup.
Rohit was not very happy when asked if he minded having such a poor result in an important match. As Rohit prepares to advance to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup, Rohit said, “What all players, not just me, have done in their career, just one knockout match cannot define them.” UK.
“You work hard all year to get where you want to be and perform well in whatever form you play. So it can’t be solved in one game,” he said.
Rohit is fine now but he reminded us not to forget the past. “It’s important to understand that the knockout games are important and we gain a lot of confidence when we do it right. But we don’t forget the past, what our players have done in the past. “You can’t say in one game everything they have done for the team over the last few years,” added Rohit.
When it comes to big multi-team events, Rohit’s management philosophy is simple. The end result must be greater than the sum of the parts. We know it has two critical steps. It should be divided into parts. “I did some of these very well. Two parts left. But tomorrow will be a part of it where we have to play well to get results,” he said, referring to Thursday’s semi-finals and potential final.
The Indian captain was funny at times when interacting with the media. When a British reporter asked about Suryakumar Yadav’s bold behavior that became the subject of the pageant, his shaky gestures and answers drew laughter from the press room.
“It must be his nature. I think he (Suriya) is one of those people who carries no baggage. No, it’s not a briefcase (laughs). He has a lot of suitcases, to be honest.
