ODI World Cup 2023: Team India-Australia Match Today: Rohit Sharma Says Playing At Home Has Its Advantage But There Is Also Pressure On Team

Chennai: The Indian team will start their campaign against Australia on Sunday in the World Cup-2023 in Chennai. The match will begin from 2 PM.

In the press conference held before the match, Rohit Sharma said, “We want to win the World Cup. There is only one way you can win. That is you follow the right process. "

‘We also need luck on our side’

Rohit said, "It is good that we want to win the World Cup but you need the right balance. We need luck as well on our side."

The Indian cricket team is considered to be the favourite to win the World Cup. The Indian team is ranked first in the ODI rankings.

Rohit Sharma said Team India has the advantage of playing at home, but the pressure on the team to win on the home ground also increases.

‘Long experience helps to handle pressure’

There will be a tinge of anxiety too, for this is India's first match in a home World Cup that they start as favourites.

Rohit said that long experience helps him to handle pressure.

He said, "16 years of experience is useful. Experience helps in handling pressure.”

Rohit Sharma said, "There will be some occasions in the tournament when some players will be under pressure and sometimes team will be in pressure."

He said, "I am focusing on what to do for the team. Indian cricketers always face pressure. Everyone knows this. We should do what is necessary for the team."

Rohit Sharma said that the players of his team know how to deal with the pressure.

He said, "There are many strong players in our team who have recovered from difficult times.”

"We are looking at the World Cup as any other tournament and focusing on the one match at a time."

‘I want Gill to first recover’

However, there is also a concern before the start of the campaign in the Indian team's camp. Opener Shubman Gill, running in a spectacular form, is not well.

Indian captain Rohit Sharma was also asked questions about Gill, to which he said, "I am a human being before the captain."

He said, "He is ill, I am a person first and then I am a captain, I want him to
first recover."

Rohit Sharma expressed confidence that Shubman Gill will be fit quickly.

He said, "He is young and will recover quickly. Every day is a new day in India."

Power of team is considered its batting 


The power of the Indian team is considered batting. There are more than one player to play at fourth, fifth and sixth in the Indian middle order.

Rohit Sharma considers it good for the team. He also says that he does not tell any batsman as a captain how he should play.

Rohit Sharma said, “There are seven-eight batsmen in our team, who bring new dimensions in the team. What they do, it is on them. The team management gives them full support."
