‘One bad game can’t truly define, who you are’: Rohit Sharma ahead of India vs England semifinal

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma addresses the media on Wednesday in Adelaide. Here’s what he said.

On securing semifinal berth

“It’s an opportunity for us. To come and to that. It’s a long process and we want to stick to it. We have to play good cricket to play that game. It’s a long way from it. It’s a contest between bat and ball and thats what we are doing so far.”

On defeat vs South Africa

“We can take pride in ourselves from where we have come. Two good teams have knocked out. We have to do well. One bad game can’t truly define, who you are.”

On Adelaide as venue

“Last year in Dubai the dimensions of the ground doesn’t change much. Some of the grounds are here have smaller boundaries some are not. Guys, who are here, it’s a challenge. We adapted nicely. Adelaide is one ground we have sit and decide. Melbourne was bigger ground. In Adelaide, we had completely different scenarios and we know what planning is required here.”

On Axar Patel
“I’m not really worried about him (Axar). He hasn’t bowled full quota. We have full seamers who have bowled full quota which means spinners can’t bowl full quota. We didn’t got Axar to play in powerplay which is his quality. Series before coming here he did well. I thought kind of space he is in. And he is in a good space”
