“…cannot think so far ahead”: Rohit Sharma on upcoming ICC World Cup 2023


Indian skipper Rohit Sharma is not concerned with next year’s 50-overs World Cup at the moment. He recently stated that it is too early to think about the high-profile tournament for now and the main focus will be on the task at hand. Rohit Sharma further opened up on the matter.

Rohit Sharma wants to focus on one game at a time

Ahead of the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh, Team India suffered a major injury blow. The series is starting Sunday, December 4. Rohit Sharma added that while the Indian team will be focusing on one game at a time, they will also be looking forward to doing well collectively and working on the areas of improvement.

“I mean, see, every time we play a game, it’s a preparation for something that is going to come in the future. But the World Cup is still 8-9 months from now. We cannot think so far ahead.” Rohit said ahead of the first ODI in Dhaka as quoted by Cricbuzz.

“But yeah, we will keep an eye on what we need to do as a team, where we can improve, and how it comes along for us. I think it’s very, very important for us not to start thinking about so many things about the World Cup; this is the combination, that is the combination, we need to play this guy, that guy,” he added.

“I and the coach have a fair idea about what we want to do and we will narrow it down once we get closer to the World Cup. But I think we just want to play cricket, play good cricket until the World Cup comes up. But first, winning the series is what we are looking at. We are looking at one game at a time and seeing how we can play well in that game. And then think about the second and third. So, thinking too far ahead sometimes doesn’t help,” he further added.

The upcoming One Day series against Bangladesh is pretty important for the Men in Blue as they were beaten 2-1 by Bangladesh during their last visit to the country for an ODI series in June 2015.
