Captain of India Rohit Sharma is aware of the consequences if India's World Cup campaign falls apart

In Rohit Sharma's career Thursday, November 2, 2023, promises to be a significant date. The captain of India will lead the Men in Blue for the first time in a World Cup match at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium, the iconic venue where Rohit has grown up playing most of his cricket but also a ground with no shortage of history. It was at this very stadium 12 years ago that India defeated Sri Lanka in the final to win the 2011 World Cup, a squad that Rohit missed being part of. Fast forward to today, and now under the captaincy of Rohit, India are just one win away from sealing a semi-final berth at the 2023 World Cup, and if they are able to get another victory past Sri Lanka—their seventh consecutive victory in the tournament—it will mark another giant step in Rohit's little redemption story.

The captain said, “It's not my thought process that India is enjoying a dream run; it's the team's thought process that the guys comply with. When things look good, everything looks good, and everything works well. I know how this whole thing works. I'm quite aware of one game here and there, and I know suddenly I'll be a bad captain. I know how it works. I try and do what is necessary from the team's perspective and be sure of that.”
