Rohit Sharma says test series in Australia won’t be easy | Cricket News



NEW DELHI: Team India has asserted its supremacy by completing a vindication of consecutive ODI series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand but the captain Rohit Sharma thinks there’s no room for complacency as the upcoming Test series against Australia will pose a different challenge.
“Honestly, we don’t talk too much about rankings. It’s about winning matches and it won’t make any difference when we play the Test against Australia. It won’t be a challenge. easy but we will be ready for it,” Rohit said at the launch ceremony.

“Over the last six games, we’ve gotten almost everything right in the ODI. We’ve been consistent in our approach to club and ball.”
India let Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami’s speed duo off the game and replaced them with Yuzvendra Chahal and Umran Malik.
Rohit said despite placing 385 for nine on the board, it is not safe on the hitter-friendly Holkar Cricket Stadium. New Zealand finished in 295th place in 41.2 rounds.
“Without Siraj and Shami, we want to give others a chance on the bench. We want to bring Chahal and Umran in, put pressure on them. We ran on the board, but on the pitch. nothing is safe like this,” he said.

Rohit praises Shardul Thakurwho was India’s best pitcher of the day, registering the number 3 to 45 from six rounds.
“We stick to the plan, stay calm. Shardul has been doing this for a while, so some people call him ‘Mage’.
“Every time I give the ball to Kuldeep, he takes the shots with him. Just give him more games, because wrist spinners get better the more they play.”
Captain India also has words of gratitude to the young people Shubman carrieswho accumulated 360 runs in three matches, including two centuries.

“His (Gill) approach is pretty much the same. He’s starting from scratch. As a young player it’s very important. He can easily sit on top of his glory and take it. easily, but he didn’t.”
In the game, Rohit also broke his three-year hiatus of a century in the ODIs by scoring 101 of 85 balls.
“The 20th century means a lot to me, it’s important to play long and bring the team to a good total,” he said.
New Zealand captain tom latham said that despite being empty-handed in this series, the 3 matches were a great lesson for the team’s young players.
“It wasn’t good to start with the ball and we did a great job to get them back to the 380. It didn’t sound right but it was, and then being thrown for 40 rounds didn’t suit us. ,” Latham said.
“This is our last experience in India before the World Cup so the players will be exposed to these conditions for three games and hopefully, it will come in handy in October.
“We’re building depth in this group without (Tim) Southee and the others. The fingers have surpassed my form for the World Cup. Hopefully we can learn from the series for the series. T20.”
Thakur was named Man of the Match for his good spelling, and the right-arm speed controller said he was always ready to contribute to the team’s success.
“They like me a lot and even I like my teammates. At some point, they will chase you, and it’s important to keep the moment and not get ahead of yourself.
“I wonder what I need to do and do it next time. I don’t think too much because we are always ready for any situation, whether with the club or the ball. Everyone loves hitting the ball and the modern game. is all about polishing,” he said.
Series player Gill said he’s satisfied with his performance because he hasn’t changed his approach to the game.
“It feels good when you perform well. It’s gratifying. I haven’t changed my approach much. I want to turn those starts into big starts, to express myself. I try to play according to my preferences. situations and conditions, not looking at his scores,” he said.
“Our pitchers did a great job and bowled really well on this racket because at one point it looked like it could go either way.”
