Will be always there whenever Kohli needs: Rohit
Indian batsman and deputy of the Indian captain Virat Kohli, opener Rohit Sharma will give support to his skipper in the upcoming World Cup.
It has often been pinched in the past that the relationship between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma is not too healthy and with World Cup approaching, India would have been in big trouble if turned out to be truth.
But thankfully, Rohit has made it clear that he will show full support to the Indian captain Virat Kohli and will be there whenever he will need him in the upcoming World Cup in England.
“He’s (Kohli) got a great squad. And he’s done a great job as captain in the last couple of years. I will be there to play my part whenever he needs my help. I’m happy to play a part in that space. Whatever matters for the team is priority no. 1. I’ll be happy to do whatever is asked of me.”
When asked if he listens to his skipper, he said –
“I’ve always been a listener. The kind of person I am, I wouldn’t have evolved one bit if that wasn’t the case. There’s no harm in listening to people — even if the person you’re listening to has just about started playing the game. Let’s get one thing straight here: You can never say you’re the wisest because, that’ll never be the case. I love opinions. In the end, it’s up to you to decide what you want to make of those opinions.”
Rohit also revealed jokingly that it is a nightmare to face the Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah in the nets.
“Do I have a choice? Every second, third day, I’m facing him in the nets. He’s even more dangerous in the close nets, because of his action. You actually want to face him in the open nets. He’s difficult to read, and then that pace he can whip up. He’s very different, very special.”
