T20 World Cup 2021: on the question of playing the final against Pakistan, Rohit Sharma gave a different answer

The way for Team India to reach the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup is still full of difficulties, in such situation, after the match against Afghanistan; a reporter questioned Vice-captain Rohit Sharma about the final match. When asked about the possibility of the final match between India and Pakistan, Rohit Sharma gave a very blunt answer. After failing in the first two matches, Rohit made a strong comeback against Afghanistan, hitting 74 runs in 47 balls.

The road to the semi-finals is difficult for India right now but when asked about the possibility of the India-Pakistan final, Rohit said, "You are talking about the final, which is still a long way for us." Who wins and who loses in Afghanistan vs New Zealand match? We are not thinking that far right now. We have to think about the next match and then the Afghanistan-New Zealand match is important for us. So the final is still a distant dream. India has lost their first two matches against Pakistan and New Zealand. At the same time, the team got a spectacular victory against Afghanistan. Team India's net run rate has also improved after this win.

Ashwin, who played T20 Internationals after four years, took two wickets for 14 runs in four over’s against Afghanistan. Rohit said after the match, 'He is a great bowler and there is no doubt about it. He has played so many crickets and taken so many wickets. He knew it was going to be a challenge for him as he was playing limited-overs cricket after three or four years. “He is always looking for wickets and it is an advantage to have a player like him in the team. He understands his bowling very well and he bowled brilliantly in the IPL as well. Hopefully, he will continue to bowl like this for us in the future as well.
