Big matches bring the best out of everyone, feels Rohit

Big matches bring the best out of everyone, feels Rohit
Ahead of India’s all-important World Cup semi-final against Australia, star batsman Rohit Sharma on Wednesday said the team knows how to win crunch matches at big events and this would be a big plus for the side when it takes on the co-hosts at the SCG here on Thursday.

With the likes of Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Ravichandran Ashwin knowing what it takes to win a 50-over World Cup while Rohit being a part of World T20 and ICC Champions Trophy triumph, the Mumbai opener feels that India will have that advantage going in their favour.

“I think so because we all played big games. Even Champions Trophy in 2011, so it brings the best out of everyone during those big matches. So, yes, we look forward to this and hopefully it will be an exciting contest,” Rohit told mediapersons at the pre-match conference. For Rohit, enjoying each other’s success has been key to this turnaround after a dismal show in the early part of the Australian Summer.

“We will enjoy each other’s success more than ever. Be it batting or bowling. As I said at the start, we have played in big matches so we know what it takes to come out as a winner. So hopefully, we’ll have a good start tomorrow. That’s going to be very crucial whether we bat or bowl, we have to start the game very well. Then you’ll see. “As the game progresses, we will see where we stand at that point in time and then think about it and analyze. I’m sure we’ll all be prepared and geared up and ready to go,” Rohit said. The Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) is a happy hunting ground for Rohit as he shot to fame with an unbeaten half-century in a CB Series final in 2008.
