Rohit Sharma Talks About His Retirement

2 min read

After India’s series victory over England, captain Rohit Sharma revealed that he would end his career if he felt he wasn’t doing well enough.

On March 9, Rohit guided the squad to victory over the English side in the Dharamsala Test, which they won by an innings and 64 runs. During a pre-recorded show, the Indian captain was questioned about retirement by Dinesh Karthik.

When asked how he would notify the team management if he woke up one day feeling that he wasn’t good enough to play cricket, Rohit answered rather directly.

The Indian opener did concede, though, that he has been playing his best cricket in recent years.

“I believe that if I wake up one day and decide that I’m not good enough, I won’t feel capable of participating in the sport. I’ll just discuss it with them and let them know. However, in all honesty, I think my game has improved over the past two or three years, and I’m playing my best cricket right now,” Rohit said.

Rohit continued by saying that he wants to make sure the players are free to enjoy their game and that the team is entirely removed from the statistical aspect of things.

“I don’t spend a lot of time studying statistics, figures, and other such things. Indeed, accumulating large runs is significant, but ultimately, I was and continue to be focused on this team’s cricketing ethos. I had a specific change in mind. Players stepping out there and having a great deal of freedom to play. I want to entirely remove the statistics aspect of cricket from this team.”

No one is examining the numbers. Individuals are not examining their own scores. Take part in the game. If you are playing correctly, the numbers will take care of themselves. If you have courage and a clear head, everything else will fall into place. Don’t, however, turn around. Go get someone, please. Can I have a fifty here? Is 100 all I can get? All of those figures are obviously positive. It will take place. However, just put everything entirely out of your head and concentrate only on the game.”

“Take in your surroundings. Savour the ambiance among the company. Savour the friendship that has grown among us in the group. It is exactly that. That’s the most significant thing to me,” Rohit remarked.
