India’s recent success in South Africa was heartening to see for Indian cricket fans. With tours lined up to England and Australia in July and November, India’s cricketing calendar looks busy. One of the mainstays of India’s limited-overs batting, Rohit Sharma has opened up about India’s preparation going ahead, and importance of home wins.

According to Reuters, Rohit said: “It’s just a general perception of people that we have to win away games. As long as you are playing the game, you have to win everywhere. It doesn’t matter where you win. People obviously find it more interesting to write something different when it comes to overseas victories. Yes overseas victories are important but you have to win at home first then you win overseas.

It is important for us to win every game, in every country. Any country we go to play we have to try and win.”

Talking about India’s tour of England and Australia, Rohit said: “There are challenging tours that are coming up which we have to do well in. Things will fall in place. There are certain things we need to improve as a group. I am sure we can take the learning from what happened in South Africa with us when we go to England.”
