Rohit Sharma Sets Sights on Future Cricket Glory: World Cups and WTC Finals

New Delhi: Rohit Sharma, captain of the Indian cricket team, is determined to bounce back from the recent disappointments in major tournaments. With his sights set on the upcoming 50-over World Cup and World Test Championship (WTC) finals in 2025 and 2027 respectively, Sharma remains optimistic despite the lingering sting of defeat.

Reflecting on India's losses to Australia in the WTC and World Cup finals, Sharma expressed his desire to participate in and win these tournaments. While Sharma was part of India's triumphant 2007 T20 World Cup team, he regards the 50-over World Cup as the pinnacle of cricket.

In a candid interview on the YouTube show "Breakfast With Champions," Sharma shared his determination to continue playing for several more years. "I am playing well at the moment and I am thinking of continuing for a few more years. I really want to win that World Cup," he stated, emphasizing the significance of the 50-over format in cricket.

Sharma remains haunted by India's defeat to Australia in the recent World Cup final, admitting it was difficult to accept. Despite India's strong performance throughout the tournament, the final loss was a bitter pill to swallow. Sharma attributed the defeat to simply having a bad day on the field, acknowledging Australia's exceptional performance.

While the defeat still lingers, Sharma found solace in India's recent Test series victory against England. However, he emphasized that the series was far from easy, as England presented formidable challenges.

Regarding playing conditions, Sharma acknowledged the difficulties faced by visiting teams in India. He emphasized the importance of capitalizing on home advantage while acknowledging the challenges of playing away from home.

Sharma also reminisced about his favorite Test cricket moment, highlighting his maiden century against the West Indies in Kolkata. He described the electrifying atmosphere of the packed stadium during Sachin Tendulkar's farewell series as an unforgettable experience.

Discussing the Indian Premier League (IPL), Sharma marveled at its evolution since its inception in 2008. He noted the increased competitiveness among teams and the growing influence of technology in team strategies and player acquisitions.

Sharma also shared memories of playing alongside legendary cricketer Shane Warne in the IPL. He praised Warne's strategic acumen and ability to predict game outcomes, highlighting the valuable insights gleaned from playing alongside him.

As Sharma looks ahead to future tournaments and IPL seasons, his determination and passion for the game remain unwavering.
