LIVE: Rohit Sharma press conference for India vs. Pakistan With just 24 hours till the crucial match between India and Pakistan, Rohit Sharma is still unsure about his starting lineup. Babar Azam has already chosen his starting lineup, while Rohit says he will wait till after watching Sri Lanka vs. Afghanistan to make his choice. The SL vs. AFG game will be played on the same field as the IND vs. PAK encounter.
“We still haven’t chosen our starting lineup. The same field will be used for tomorrow’s game as it was today (SL vs AFG). We want to observe how the game plays out before selecting our starting XI. The curator and I discussed how the throw would not be a concern. Not much dew has been present. However, we will wait till after today’s Sri Lanka vs. Afghanistan game before making a decision, Rohit Sharma stated.
Additionally, there is the enormous issue of the pressure that comes with being the reigning champs. Vice-captain of India KL Rahul was present at the most recent news conference.
The pitch was first shown to us yesterday. There was some grass present. I have no idea how it will turn out. Every team is competitive. Therefore, we are unsure if the competition will be dominated by spins just yet. Shaheen and Bumrah are not native to Pakistan. The other guys, though, will take their chances.
In the camp:
We are excited about this new event and new beginning. Playing against Pakistan will undoubtedly be difficult. Being here is exciting for everyone.
about Dinesh Karthik
His talent is the reason he was brought back. He made some important plays before being dropped. Now he’s done it once more. He is here for that reason.
In the game:
The curator and I discussed how the throw would not be a concern. Not much dew has been present. However, we will wait till after today’s Sri Lanka vs. Afghanistan match to make a decision.
The starting XI:
The starting XI is a matter for discussion. The same field will be used for tomorrow’s game as it was today (SL vs AFG). We want to observe how the game plays out before selecting our starting XI.
Regarding the batting order:
Who bats where will be decided by the head coach. I enjoyed Virat at the nets, at least as far as I’m concerned. He hasn’t changed in any unusual ways. After taking a month off, he returned looking good.
On the bilateral series with Pakistan:
I would have known the solution if I did. The boards and the governments will make the decision. We arrive at the requested location.
How to be composed before important games:
There isn’t a recipe. Every participant uses a different method. As a result of its success, they stand by their method. I do to. Every year, we play a lot of games. How we respond to it is up to us.
