Indian captain Rohit Sharma opened up about his emotions on leading India in the ICC World Cup 2023 final. He said that he never thought that he would captain the team at such a big event after missing out on the team of the 2011 World Cup.
The story of Indian captain Rohit Sharma has been fantastic. He was dropped from the Indian squad for the ICC World Cup 2011 and after that, he was completely shattered. The batter has been quite open about what he went through during that phase and admitted that it was the hardest time in his career.
But 12 years later, he will be captaining the Indian team in the final of the ICC World Cup 2023. He put in hard yards after that setback and became the backbone of the team in all three formats of the game. He was handed the captaincy of the team when Virat Kohli stepped down in 2021 and after that, he has been exceptional as a leader.
However, his real test will be when India will take on Australia in the final of the ICC World Cup 2023 on Sunday (19th November). Rohit Sharma will be one of the crucial players for the team heading into the final as he led from the front and is one of the main reasons behind the team reaching the final undefeated.
Rohit Sharma said that he just wanted to create a good space in the team. He admitted that it was a hard time for him in 2011 but he’s delighted with the present. Speaking to reporters, he explained:
“It was a very emotional and hard time in 2011 but I am very happy at this stage, I never thought I will lead the team in a final but if you wish, that will happen – I just wanted to create good space in the team”.
