Rohit Sharma Talks About His Form and Family

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 • Common Sport News Comments

Rohit Sharma has been performing consistently well in the World Cup. The last match against Pakistan saw him score 140 from 113 balls. Talking about his performance the ace batsman said: “As a batsman, when the conditions are challenging, you got to assess it. The pitch was under cover for the last two days and we needed to assess and ensure that you don’t lose too many wickets upfront. The idea was not to lose wickets, build a platform and then take the game forward. It was a satisfying knock.” 

The Hitman gave his partner KL Rahul a chance to open the innings saying: “Rahul also likes to take first strike, so I wanted to give him that space. Nothing specific, I wanted to make sure he is comfortable because he is opening after a while.” He also spoke about teammate Kuldeep Yadav’s bowling spell saying: “He is someone who needs a lot of confidence before going into a spell. He is a match-winner and has a good record. He got us two crucial wickets. He didn’t start the tournament the way he would have liked to but we wanted to give him the confidence. He is one of our premier bowlers.”

The batsman who is a new father also mentioned the role of his daughter in his life. He said: “It is a very good phase in my life. Having a new-born daughter has left me in a good space.” In an earlier interview, he had said: “When my teammates got to know that I am going to become a father, they were laughing at me. They were like you are going to be a father? The reaction came in because of the mannerism and the things I have done in my previous years.

They think I am irresponsible, obviously in a funny way. But I am gonna make sure that everything changes.” We have already seen the bond that MS Dhoni and his daughter Ziva share. Looks like social media is going to have a double feast as Rohit and Samaira join the club.
