“We have a lot of freedom to express ourselves”-Rohit Sharma
Indian batsman Rohit Sharma has been in blistering form during 2016 and he has attributed this to the fact that the Indian batsmen have a lot of freedom to express themselves which helps has helped them in adopting the fearless attitude in international cricket.
Speaking to Times of India (Quotes via NDTV) Sharma said that international cricket has really helped him score those big hundreds for India and how to mould yourself according to an situation.
“International cricket taught me what it takes to probably go out there and get a 100 or to build an innings or to win a game. I keep thinking about strategies, analysing situations, and working it out inside my mind, see what is best for the team at that point,”
“We have a lot of freedom to express ourselves. When you see us playing on the field, I guess you can make that out. This batting unit, especially, is fearless. We want to go out there and achieve the best possible result.”
He added that the support stuff has been really helpful in making him a player he is today and he especially pointed out the names of Ravi Shastri and Sanjay Bangar for their continued support and guidance.
“The support staff and individuals like Ravi Shastri have made a lot of difference to this side. A lot of credit goes to Sanjay Bangar as well. He’s been doing a lot of work behind the scenes, spending lot of time with batsmen, creating a positive environment. The age-group in the team is around the same, so all of us can relate with each other,” Rohit added.
