Rohit Sharma Makes Retirement Stand

Captain Rohit Sharma mentioned that he is keen on winning a World Cup for the side and isn’t considering retirement at the moment. He is set to continue to play for a few more years while taking to Ed Sheeran and Gaurav Kaur on a special edition of Breakfast with Champions on April 12.

Rohit Sharma-led India was almost close to winning the ODI World Cup last year in India where he led the side to the final. The Hosts had been the most successful team in the group stages but lost the final match against Australia.

The Indian captain concluded the campaign after scoring 597 runs. While asked about his retirement plans with Ed Sheeran, Rohit Sharma replied that he is currently playing well and looking to win the World Cup with India.

“I haven’t really thought about retirement. But, I don’t know where life takes you. I am still playing well at this point in time – so I am thinking I am going to continue for a few more years and then, I don’t know. I really want to win the World Cup and there is a WTC final in 2025, hopefully, India makes it,” said Rohit.

He also opened up on the loss in the World Cup final last year and said he didn’t feel anything could stop India at the moment. He said that India had a bad day at that time and Australia played slightly better than them.

“50-over World Cup for me is the actual World Cup. We’ve grown up watching that World Cup. More importantly, it was happening in India in front of our home crowd. We played so well up until that final. When we won the semi-finals, I thought, now we’re just a step away. We’re doing all the things right.”

“What’s the one thing that can make us lose the World Cup? Not a single thing came to my mind. Because I thought we ticked all the boxes, we were playing good cricket. Confidence was there.”

“We were all supposed to have one bad day and that I guess that was our bad day. Don’t think we played bad cricket in that final, certain things didn’t go our way. But Australia were slightly better than us,” said Rohit.

With Rohit Sharma set to lead India for the Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, they will be looking forward to a title in the USA and West Indies.

The ICC tournament is set to start in June and India will be playing their first match against Ireland on June 05 at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium.
