Going to be a little hectic but we’re used to it: Rohit Sharma on Super Eight challenge

Srinagar: Team India skipper Rohit Sharma has said that his side is all ready for the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 challenge.

India started World Cup journey with a comfortable win over Ireland, which was followed by two gritty contests, against Pakistan and USA respectively.

A washed-out encounter with Canada ensured that India topped their group even as they enter next stage of the tournament.

Slated in Group 1 alongside Australia, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, the Men in Blue are keen to continue their unbeaten run.

“It clearly shows that everybody wants to make a difference and we take our skill sessions quite seriously. There’s something to achieve every skill sessions that you do. After we play our first game, we’ll play our next two games in a span of three-four days,” he noted.

“It’s going to be a little hectic but we’re used to all of this. We travel a lot, we play a lot. So that’s never going to be an excuse.

“We’ll look to focus a lot more on our skills and what we need to do as a team rather than what others are doing. Every (practice) session then becomes really important, to make the best use of it.”

India’s group stage took place in USA, whereas teams like Afghanistan, and Australia had the luxury of playing in the West Indies during the first round. This was, however, not a concern for Rohit.

“We’ve seen a lot of games here, we’ve played a lot of games here. Everyone understands what one needs to do, to get the result in our favour,” he said.

“Everyone’s looking forward and quite excited at the same time.”

India commence their Super Eight round of matches against Afghanistan on June 20 in Barbados.
