With no cricket going on, all the cricketers have a lot of free time on their hands right now. Many cricketers have also been proactive on their social media in the past few weeks due to the lockdown. On Tuesday, Indian opener Rohit Sharma joined hands with fellow teammate Suresh Raina for an Instagram live session wherein the Mumbai Indians skipper stressed on how India must win at least two World Cups in the coming three years.
Speaking with Indian cricketer Suresh Raina during the Instagram live session, Rohit said, “It is not easy to win the World Cup, there is a different feeling altogether when you win that tournament, feelings and emotions are attached to that tournament. It’s difficult to beat seven-eight teams and win a world cup final. But when you win the world cup your joy doubles.”
Rohit added, “I think we have an opportunity like there are three World Cups lined up, two T20 World Cups and one 50-over World Cup, and I have said many times that we must win at least two world cups.”
Speaking of World Cups, Rohit Sharma had an excellent outing in the 2019 World Cup last year. Finishing as the highest run-scorer, Sharma amassed a whopping 648 runs in just 9 matches. Rohit Sharma also becomes the first batsman to score five centuries in a single edition of the World Cup Last year in England.
He is the only player in the world to register three double tons to his name in white-ball cricket. Rohit holds the highest individual score in ODI’s for his 264 against Sri Lanka.
If not for the CornaVirus pandemic, Rohit Sharma would have been busy leading the Mumbai Indians in IPL. Scheduled to begin on March 29, the tournament was postponed to April 15. However, with the increasing number of positive cases in India, BCCI has suspended the tournament for an indefinite period.
