Team India skipper Rohit Sharma is confident about his playing XI for the opening match against Pakistan in the 2022 T20 World Cup. He expressed that his playing XI is ready for the match. The much-awaited arch-rivals clash will take place on Sunday, October 23 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Rohit Sharma attended an all-skipper press conference on Friday, October 14 ahead of ICC T20 WC 2022. Responding to one of the questions, he stated that he wants to give his players time to prepare for the match. The Indian skipper also added that the teams have become fearless, as the T20 game is changing fast.

“I don’t believe in last-minute decisions. We want to keep our boys informed about team selection before so that they can prepare early. I already have my XI for the Pakistan match. Already those players are informed. I don’t believe in a last-minute thing. I want them to prepare well. We understand the importance of India vs Pakistan match but there is no point in talking every time, even when we met during Asia Cup, we keep talking about the families, which cars do you have,” said Rohit Sharma.

“Teams have become fearless and we’re looking to adopt the same approach. 140 used to be a winning total back then but now teams aim to reach there in 14-15 overs,” he added.

Looking forward to seeing Mohammed Shami: Rohit Sharma

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma also spoke about Mohammed Shami who joined the Indian team for the T20 World Cup as Jasprit Bumrah’s replacement. Bumrah complained of back pain during a practice session earlier this month and was ruled out of the T20 World Cup. Speaking about Shami, Sharma said,

“Mohammed Shami I haven’t seen but whatever I have heard it is good. We have a practice session in Brisbane on Sunday and I am looking forward to seeing Shami.”
