Hamilton: Vice-captain Rohit Sharma on Wednesday emphasised on India’s recent winning streak in the shortest format, calling it a good sign heading into the T20 World Cup. India claimed an unassailable 3-0 lead in the ongoing five-match T20I series against hosts New Zealand with victory here.
“Whenever anyone’s got an opportunity, they have made it count. Shikhar as well, when he played the last series against Sri Lanka, he got a crucial 50 and then KL has been in good form over the last 7-8 T20s, he’s got probably 4 or 5 fifties,” Rohit said.
“So it’s a good sign for the team. That’s how we look at it. It’s important for most of our players to stay in good form and then what happens with the final XI and everything that will be only decided once all the players are available and the captain and management will sit together and identify who are the right guys to play that particular game. That’s how I look at it.
“For me, I want everyone to stay in good form, which has happened through the series. It is a great sign for us moving forward in this particular format at least. I wish the next two games too we don’t relax. We just want to keep the momentum going. It’s a good sign.”
