“I am only focused on World Cup, touring Pakistan or not is BCCI’s decision,” Rohit Sharma plays down the question on Asia Cup 2023 venue controversy

Rohit Sharma was talking to the media ahead of the clash between the bitter rivals India and Pakistan tomorrow

The Indian captain Rohit Sharma has said that he has no personal opinion on whether India should tour Pakistan or not and it’s up to the BCCI to decide where the team would tour. Right now, he is only focused on India’s matches in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022.

Rohit Sharma was addressing the media ahead of the India Vs Pakistan game which will take place tomorrow and he answered a variety of questions from journalists all across the world, but on the question of touring Pakistan, he simply said it’s up to the BCCI to decide.

One of the other questions that Rohit was asked was what he has done differently since taking over the captaincy of Indian white-ball sides. The Indian captain said that all he has done since being given charge of the team is to give the players the liberty to play their game and he has also given them the assurance that they won’t be dropped after a few failures.




India might change their playing XI every game in this World Cup: Rohit Sharma

Rohit, however, also said that India might have to adopt a horses-for-courses policy in the World Cup depending on the pitches and the conditions. If the pitch and the conditions are different in every game, then India might change their playing XI in every game.

While a major part of India’s playing XI in T20I cricket has been the same since Asia Cup 2022, a couple of changes have been made here and there in the bowling department and also for the wicketkeeper’s slot, with Dinesh Karthik playing a few games and then missing out on a few games for Rishabh Pant.


It’s most likely to be those spots again which will be subject to changes according to the conditions and sometimes according to the opposition as well, but the top 5 of the Indian batting line-up is more or less certain.


I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
