Team India skipper Rohit Sharma and other captains of the participating teams took part in the press meet of the T20 World Cup 2022 on Saturday, October 15. The captains jointly spoke to the media before the start of a mega event, talking about their aspirations and team combinations.
Rohit, who became the skipper of the Men in Blue last year, attended his first T20 World Cup presser as the captain of the national team as well. However, after the meeting was over, he was spotted boarding a cab.
An Australian sports journalist took to Twitter to share the video of Rohit Sharma boarding the cab along with a member of India’s support staff as well.

However, the members of Team India reached Brisbane a few hours after the end of the presser.
“I don’t believe in last-minute decisions” – Rohit Sharma
While speaking at the presser, Rohit Sharma revealed that they have already planned their playing XI for the Pakistan game as well. India will open their T20 World Cup campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 23 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
“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 last-minute thing. I want them to prepare well,” Rohit revealed.
However, apart from talking about the India-Pakistan game, Rohit also spoke about Jasprit Bumrah and said that his career is more important than a T20 World Cup as well.
“We spoke to a lot of the specialists about his injuries, but we did not get a decent response. This World Cup is important, but his career is more important. He is only 27-28, there is a lot of cricket in front of him. So, we can’t take such a risk. All the specialists we spoke to were of the same opinion. There is a lot of cricket ahead of him, he will play a lot more and help India win matches. There is no doubt that he will be missed,” the Indian captain further stated.
