Dinesh Karthik over Rohit’s improved performance 

India had completed their ICC warmup games on October 3. With India winning their last World Cup title in 2011, they are looking desperate to end the trophy drought at a major ICC event.

During the 2011 tournament, the current skipper Rohit Sharma was not part of the team that lifted the title. The skipper was overlooked by selectors for the ICC event in 2011. Since then Rohit has appeared in two WC tournaments. India has been able to make it up to the semi-finals in the last two tournaments.

With the India team led by Rohit Sharma marching to the grand stage in 2023, the former player Dinesh Karthik opens on the rise of the right hander in all kinds of formats.

He said that Rohit Sharma might be preparing for the final appearance in the ODI format ICC event. He was the leading run-scorer for India and smashed five centuries in the 2019 edition.

On this occasion, Karthik opened up on the improved performance of the player over the years.  Dinesh Karthik Said, “He (Rohit Sharma) is made for big things and has achieved a lot in his career. In many ways, this could be his last ODI World Cup. He’s been a very close friend of mine. We have literally grown together as players and as people.”

He also mentioned that Rohit Sharma’s captaincy took India to the finals in the ICC Test championships last year.

“He has a lovely family today, is a proper family man, and spends a lot of time in Mumbai with them, but most importantly, he is somebody who always remembers his roots. Even today, his closest friends are the same people who were there with him 20 years ago,” Karthik revealed.

Rohit Sharma led India team to have their eighth Asia Cup title in 2023. But he was rested in the first two matches of the three ODI series of Australia’s tour of India. He was impressive in the third match against Australia where he scored 81 runs on 57 balls.

“He is somebody who has changed his game so much. He was the highest run-getter in the 2019 World Cup. Even if he gets half the runs, I don’t think he will care. He has said himself that he doesn’t care about the runs he gets.”

“It’s all about trying to win this World Cup. The one that he has made sure is to walk the talk. He is always in a hurry to get Team India off to a good start and putting the opponent bowlers to rest,” Karthik concluded.

Due to India’s warmup games being cancelled due to rain, they will be heading directly towards the World Cup tournament facing Australia on their first match on October 8 at MA Chidambaram Stadium.
