Rohit Sharma, who has been recalled in India’s Test team for the four-match series against Australia, said on Sunday the Men-in-Blue must use the confidence gained from a comprehensive 3-0 T20I triumph over West Indies for their upcoming trip to Down Under.
Riding on Shikhar Dhawan (92) and Rishabh Pant (58) the fifties, Team India edged past West Indies in the last ball thriller. The home team have dominated the WIndies’ India tour, winning the Test series 2-0, ODI series 3-1, and T20I series 3-0.
“Overall, I am very happy with how we approached this T20 series,” Rohit Sharma said while speaking to media, adding, “There is a lot to take away, we ticked a lot of boxes and particularly I was very happy with the way we fielded.”
Speaking about India’s Australia tour later this month, Rohit said, “Australia is always challenging in terms of going out there and performing, every time you go there you are tested as a player and as a team.”
Rohit Sharma also said Australia would be different compared to the young West Indies team. “We’ve got to be at our best, but when you win series like this and play like that you are high in confidence, so it’s all about taking that confidence to Australia and doing what we’ve done as a team,” Rohit said, adding, “Australia will be a different ball game, but the things we’ve been doing as a team, we’ve got to keep doing that.”
