Indian batsman Rohit Sharma who scored 56 runs in the last warm up match against Pakistan was happy with his form.

 

The Mumbaikar who was struggling with his form in the recent series worked hard on his batting and fitness during the break of 25 days. The middle order batsman feels that he has to play a crucial role for the team in the ICC World T20.

 

The middle-order batsman expressed confidence that India would bounce back from the five-wicket loss to Pakistan in their last warm-up game ahead of the World Twenty20, and said the team will get better as the tournament progresses.

 

"We should bounce back. I am sure we will come good as the tournament progresses. It was just one of those bad days.

 

We will come hard against Afghanistan and take it from there," Sharma said.

 

India opens its campaign in the tournament proper with a match against Afghanistan on Wednesday.

 

After the win over Sri Lanka in the first practice match, Monday's loss to the arch-rival has dented India's confidence to an extent.

 

"Unfortunately, things didn't go our way. 186 was a good target on this wicket because I thought there was a bit of help for the spinners, but it was one of those days when things didn't come together," Sharma was quoted as saying by the ICC website.
