The Indian team has undoubtedly been playing some real good cricket of late. Their six consecutive series wins bear testimony to that. As reported by PTI, in a promotional event of Adidas in Mumbai, Rohit Sharma mentioned that he felt it was because India’s success story can be attributed to their playing as a unit. Apart from their dominant home run since 2016 (including Australia at home), India have also been impressive with series wins in West Indies and Sri Lanka.

“Credit goes to everyone. Because irrespective of whether you play for a city or country, you have to win a match and it is not an easy task. We have won six back-to-back series because we have played together as a unit. If you want to win a tournament, it not that that one or two players will perform and you will win. It is essential that everybody contributes as this is a team sport. We are going towards a goal and that I think is good for team. The way the team is thinking that is in one direction, which is helping the side and everyone is contributing, not just one or two players,” opined Rohit.

Yes, our aim is the 2019 World Cup and the preparations are on. Like our selectors, coach and captain have said the way our team is playing and the combination of the team has been made keeping the World Cup in mind. It is clear that what the team wants from the players.” KL Rahul, Karn Sharma added to Board President’s XI squad vs NZ
