Asia Cup-2023: Rohit Sharma Said This After Victory Over Sri Lanka

India captain Rohit Sharma on Tuesday said it was good to play a high-pressure game against Sri Lanka in the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup-2023 as it challenged a lot of aspects of our game ahead of the World Cup.

India, who reached the final with four points, will either face Sri Lanka or Pakistan in the final on Sunday.

"It was a good game. For us also to play a game like that under pressure. Challenged a lot of aspects of our game," Rohit said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

Electing to bat, India managed a below-par 213 but the bowlers produced a splendid collective effort to carry their team to a 41-run win, and into the final of the Asia Cup.

We want to play on pitches like these: Rohit

"We definitely want to play on pitches like these to see what we can achieve," Rohit Sharma said.

Rohit was full of praise for Hardik Pandya (1/14) and Kuldeep Yadav's (4/43) efforts with the ball.

"Hardik has worked hard on his bowling over the last couple of years, and it's pleasing to see how he bowled that spell. We did not give a big target. Pitch got slightly better towards the end so we had to hold our nerve and bowl consistently," Rohit said.

"Kuldeep again for the past year or so bowling really well. He's worked hard on his rhythm and you can see the results in the last 15 ODIs he's played. He gives us a lot of options. So going forward it's a pretty good sign."
