Have Not Changed As A Person In The Last 16 Years – Rohit Sharma

In an interview with PTI just before joining the Asia Cup camp in Bengaluru, Rohit Sharma said that he hasn’t changed over the past 16 years and doesn’t see a need to.

“A person can’t change overnight with his success or failures. I don’t think one result or one championship can change me as a person,” Rohit said.

“I have not changed as a person in the last 16 years and I don’t think anything needs to change on that front. The focus will be on how I can achieve my goals in the next two months, for me and my team. A person can’t change in a period of one or two months,” he added.

“I am not a firm believer in numbers. You should be happy and enjoy the time you have in-front of you, and try to live in that kind of moment. I am thinking about what gives me happiness,” he added.
