In the 2019 World Cup, India’s opening batsman Rohit Sharma set records with 5- hundreds against England. After India was defeated by New Zealand in the championship’s semi-final, though, his heroics were forgotten. Undoubtedly, it was a world record, but it meant nothing to Rohit because his team failed to win the championship game. Here is Rohit Sharma About Next 3 World Cup.
Rohit Sharma About Next 3 World Cup
Boria Majumdar and Kushan Sarkar’s book ‘Mission Domination: An Unfinished Quest’ showed that India’s limited-overs vice-captain had not recovered from that terrible day in Manchester. The book’s writers recollect about Rohit Sharma’s recovery from a hamstring problem he received in New Zealand, and how he had yet to heal from the semi-final defeat in the 2019 World Cup.
“There was a degree of restlessness in Rohit, which we found out when we met him for a conversation close to the end of his rehab at the NCA on 25 February 2020. Rohit had hurt his hamstring in New Zealand that ended his tour even before he could play his first overseas Test as an opener”.
The five hundreds really don’t mean much anymore: Rohit Sharma
“He was in red hot form in the white-ball leg of the tour and just a few months earlier had scored five hundreds in the 2019 World Cup, the highest ever by any batsman in world cup history,” the excerpt from the book read.
Rohit Sharma had also stated at the time that all of the well-wishes and congratulations for his outstanding performance with the bat in the World Cup meant nothing to him. “The five hundreds really don’t mean much anymore. Personally it was a great achievement, but when you are playing a team sport, it is never about personal milestones”.
“When I reached home after the World Cup and everyone was congratulating me for the hundreds, I can honestly tell you I did not feel any elation. The real prize was in the England dressing room and it was difficult to accept that we had not made the final,” Rohit said.
“Further during the interaction with the book authors, the 34-year-old cleared his obsession with the World Cup and hoped India wins at least one in the next three years”.
“World Cup jeetna hai. We have three World Cups in the next three years and we must win a world tournament. This is one obsession we have to fulfill,” he said.
