However, a minor disruption occurred when a journalist’s phone rang during Rohit Sharma’s response to a question. The interruption momentarily flustered Rohit Sharma, who remarked, “Kya yaar phone band rakho yaar” (Come on yaar, switch off your phone).

The summit clash of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 promises to be a thrilling spectacle, pitting the Rohit Sharma-led India National Cricket Team against the formidable Australia National Cricket Team, captained by Pat Cummins. The match will be played at the world’s largest cricket stadium, the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, on Sunday, November 19.
During the pre-match press conference, Rohit Sharma shed light on various aspects of the match, including the inclusion of Mohammed Shami in the playing XI following Hardik Pandya’s injury. He stated, “It was tough for Mohammed Shami not to be part of the World Cup initially. He was there to help Mohammed Siraj, and it shows his quality. We told him why he wasn’t part of it and he worked in nets. The results are showing and say a lot about him.”
Addressing the concept of ‘aura’ surrounding certain teams, Rohit Sharma asserted that he doesn’t believe in such notions and focuses solely on the present.
He explained, “I don’t believe in auras and stuff. You have to land up and play good cricket. If you make mistakes tomorrow, all the good work of 10 games will be wasted. Past and future aren’t things we fret about, and we have focused on the present. What happened in 2003 is something I am not thinking about.”
Rohit Sharma’s leadership and composure will be crucial in guiding the India National Cricket Team to victory in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 final. The match promises to be an edge-of-the-seat affair, with both teams vying for the coveted trophy.
