Before the match, India captain Rohit Sharma interacted with the media on Friday where he didn’t shy away from accepting that he was playing “high-risk cricket” in the past and that he needs to bring the “right” balance to his game in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023.
Rohit stated that he must bring balance to his game and carefully assess the circumstances before taking risks because the team requires him to play extended innings.
“I have played a lot of cricket so it’s important to use that experience. Will do what the team requires from me. In the past two years, I have played a different brand of cricket – it was a high-risk cricket when it comes to batting. I need to bring the right balance to my game – when it comes to taking risks,” Rohit said in a pre-match press conference.
On the eve of the clash between the Asian Giants, Babar talked about the relationship and the influence Virat has had since the moment he met him.
“The debate that has been going on should be left to them. I don’t want to comment on it. Everybody has their point of view. There should be mutual respect. I have been taught that we should respect our seniors. I have learned a lot from him. I have said in a lot of interviews that in 2019 I talked to him and he helped me a lot. He has been helpful,” Babar said in the pre-match conference.
