“Felt there needs to be…”: Rohit Sharma on message given to team after last T20 WC

Team India

The 2021 T20 World Cup was a disasterous one because Team India under the captaincy of the then captain Virat Kohli failed to make it to the semi-finals after suffering losses from Pakistan and New Zealand.

Now the current captain Rohit Sharma has opened up on what happened after their failure. He also shed light on what sort of equation he shares with now head coach Rahul Dravid.

“We have made it very clear after the T20 World Cup in Dubai, when we did not qualify and we felt there needs to be a change in our attitude, our approach, and how we play the game so we had the clear message given to the boys. They were ready to accept that challenge. Not too many chop and change in the squad. With Rahul Bhai, I have played some games with him, he was my first captain when I made my ODI debut so obviously, we have some sort of understanding,” said Rohit on Star Sports’ show ‘Follow The Blues’.

“And when he became the coach here, we met and sat together in a room for a while and we decided how we want to take this team forward and he was pretty much on the same thought process of how I was thinking,” he added.
