The veteran Indian opener, Rohit Sharma doesn’t believe in setting long-term goals as they only add to the pressure and stress. The coronavirus pandemic has effected a lot of the normal life of people around the world. All professional cricket events have either been canceled or postponed with uncertainty over two major competitions – IPL and Men’s T20 World Cup – remaining.
During a recent chat with Star Sports’ Cricket Connected, Rohit said, “Over the years, I’ve realized that long term goals won’t help you in any way, on the contrary, it will add to your pressure and stress. I have always focused on short term goals which are mainly the next few games in the upcoming 2-3 months who is it against, what can I do best. Setting goals for each series or tournament helps me a lot and I will continue to follow this method in the future.”
Rohit isn’t planning a lot about his long future into the future and just hopes international cricket resumes soon enough so he can get back onto the field.
The Indian opener said, “In the upcoming years, I hope we get the opportunity to play cricket, as we don’t know when we will play again. When we resume playing cricket, we will have to see what’s coming our way – whether its T20 World Cup or IPL. we even had a big bilateral series against Australia planned we will have to analyze and see who we are playing against.”
