New India captain Rohit Sharma believes there is no need for much change in the one-day series against the West Indies. He said that clarifying the role of players in the team would be decisive in future and would prove to be beneficial for the team. Rohit Sharma’s tenure as the white ball India captain will begin with the first one-day international against the West Indies at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday, February 6.
Earlier, in a virtual press conference, Rohit Sharma said, “There is not much to change. We just need to adapt to the different conditions of the game being presented to us. We’ve played really good cricket over the years. Just losing a series doesn’t mean we have to panic. ”
Rohit Sharma further said, “There is just something to learn and understand that we have to include in our game and there is a lot to learn from what the series against South Africa as a team has not collectively done.” ۔ After all, it’s a team game and everyone has to get involved, demonstrate and then win the match. This cannot be done with the step of one or two people, “he said.” The role of some players in the team is important for us to move forward. “If we talk to the players about it, we can get what we want from different players at different points of the game.”
Rohit Sharma has confirmed that Ishan Kishan will start the innings with him in the first ODI on Sunday. He also said that opener Manek Agarwal is still in quarantine after Shikhar Dhawan and Returaj Gaikwad were affected by Code-19. “We have the only alternative,” he said. Manek was included in the team but is still in quarantine. They came here late, so they had to stay in quarantine. Rohit Sharma admitted that the successful wrist-spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yevinder Chahal have been included. Team India will have a good plan to take wickets in the middle overs.
Rohit Sharma warns Kuldeep Yadav to hurry to play after knee injury and surgery in September 2021. “Kuldeep has not played exclusively since the last IPL,” he said. He was injured and has been out since. That is why we do not want them to rush into things. ” Kuldeep needs to play a lot of matches to get his form.
