Rohit Sharma on India losing World Cup 2023

During the recent The Great Indian Kapil Show episode, Kapil Sharma spoke about the Indian team’s incredibly performance throughout the World Cup 2023 and how they lost the cup to Australia during last match. The host then asked Rohit how he felt in that moment. To this, the skipper said, “Yeh kehna bada muskil he kyuki match ke pehle hum do din Ahmedabad mein the, hum practice kiye. Ek achcha momentum team ka bana hua tha. Bolte hain jaise ki autopilot mein team chal rahi thi (It is difficult to say because before the finals we were in Ahmedabad and did our practice. There was a good momentum. The team was on autopilot).”

He continued, “Jab final match start hua… humne shuruat achchi ki. I think Shubman Gill jaldi out ho gaya tha. But uske baad Virat [Kohli] aur mera thoda saa ek partnership ho gaya tha. Toh confidence tha ki hum achcha score khada kar sakenge.  (When the final match started we did well in the beginning. I think Shubman Gill was out quite fast. Then Virat Kohli and me had a good partnership. So, we were confident that we would do well.)”

He further said, “Par final mein jab ap khelte ho, bade matches mein… run laga doge board pe toh samne waalo ke upar pressure hogi. Chahe ho 100 run kyu na ho! Kyuki unko banana he woh run. Aur pressure mein koi bhi team fisal sakti hein! But unhone achcha cricket khela, Australia ne… unka bada partnership bhi ho agya tha But in these big matches, there is always a pressure. Even if that board says 100 runs. Because they know they have to score. And in that pressure any team can slip. But the Australian team played well and had a good partnership).”

Rohit on fans’ reactions

This was followed by Archana Puran Singh sharing that even if the Indian team lost the match they still won the hearts of millions. Rohit admitted that the response from the fans surprised him after they lost the World Cup as he anticipated they would be angry but on the contrary they have been very supportive and loving.
