Rohit Sharma sends a message ahead of Semis – “Play freely and do not think too much about what’s lying ahead”


India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, has delivered a powerful message ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024 semifinal clash against England. After India’s emphatic win over Australia, Rohit emphasized the importance of maintaining their fearless approach and not overthinking the challenge that lies ahead.

Rohit Sharma leads India’s aggressive batting approach

India’s aggressive brand of cricket in this World Cup has been refreshing. Unlike previous editions, they’ve avoided over-reliance on any specific player. Rohit himself exemplified this consistency, smashing a swashbuckling 92 runs off 41 balls against Australia, including 8 sixes and 7 boundaries.

The semifinal against England is a rematch of the 2022 T20 World Cup. India faced a rampaging England side in Adelaide, where they were beaten by 10 wickets due to a timid batting approach. This time, Rohit wants his team to stick to what they’ve been doing well.

“We don’t want to do anything different, play the same way, and understand what each person has to do. Play freely and not think too much about what’s lying ahead. Do not think about the opposition. We have been doing it consistently, just need to continue,” Rohit Sharma said after India’s emphatic win over Australia.

“It would be nice, nothing changes for us as a team. We want to focus on what we have been doing well,” Rohit said when asked about the opportunity of facing England.
