India skipper Rohit Sharma stated that he did not think that India was playing cautious cricket before to the T20 World Cup last year before the five-match T20I series vs West Indies.
Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, is back after taking a break for the ODI series against the West Indies.
He will now be in charge of the team for the next five-match T20I series, which gets underway on Friday. Rohit had a news conference on Thursday before the series, during which he said that India did not play cautious cricket in the quickest format before to the World Cup last year.
“Just because we didn’t win the World Cup doesn’t mean we played awful cricket. And while I do not disagree that we were played conservative cricket, it appears like we did not take any chances if we lost a few World Cup games. We won 80% of the games we played before the World Cup, if you look at them. If you are cautious, I don’t understand how you can win this many games, Rohit added.
“We failed the World Cup, but it is possible that it may have been different had we been playing more freely. The only thing that has changed recently is that we have given gamers more flexibility to express themselves.
As we play cricket, there will also be failures and the outcomes might not be what we want, but that is acceptable since we are trying something new, therefore the people around the outside should preserve calm. It is possible for mistakes to be made, but this does not imply that the players are incompetent. Everyone must change throughout time since we are all changing, and those outside of us must also change “Added he.
When asked if there are any openings on the World Cup roster, Rohit responded: “We have certain gaps to fill, but we really know what has to be done to accomplish so.
