Despite India’s impending elimination from the Asia Cup after consecutive losses to Pakistan and Sri Lanka, skipper Rohit Sharma is not worried about the team’s form leading up to the T20 World Cup next month.

In a Super Four match on Tuesday in the continental T20 competition in the United Arab Emirates, Sri Lanka beat defending champion India by six wickets with a ball to spare. India’s hopes of making Sunday’s final hinge on other results going in their favor after Rohit’s team fell to archrivals Pakistan in their first Super Four encounter.

India last won a major international tournament in 2011, when they also took home the 50-overs World Cup and the ICC Champions Trophy.

Rohit told reporters, “There is more pressure in competitions like the Asia Cup and the World Cup, where there are several opponents.” “You can better prepare for a series when you play three to five games against the same opponent in a bilateral series.

We’re here to help the team make smarter calls under intense scrutiny. The Twenty20 World Cup is less than a month away in Australia, and Rohit has already declared that the roster won’t be shuffled around much. It’s safe to say that the team has settled down 95% of the way. There won’t be much in the way of modifications, ” What he had to say was

“The previous three or four series we’ve played have provided us with some answers to the many questions we’ve had. At some point, we’ll decide that this is the final lineup that we’ll use, and that’s it.”

Even after two losses at the Asia Cup, Rohit insisted that the team was still optimistic. Rohit, who bats first, remarked that the team’s mood is easygoing and chill.

“We’re going for a vibe in the locker room that doesn’t change whether we win or lose. Our team is complete and lacks no essential members.

That’s a lot of matches we’ve played and won.
