Rohit added that he started his career as a bowler and then later developed his batting. The Indian limited overs deputy is currently one of the best batsmen in the white ball form.

Rohit is one of the most improved white ball batsmen.

Rohit also added that he tries to give his all when he steps on the field. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma is currently leading Mumbai Indians in the ongoing IPL as it is going to be a difficult playoffs journey for them.

“I’m not a fan of that tag because my abilities are something I’ve worked very hard to develop. I started off as a bowler. Batting is something I started working on later. Every time I step on to that field, I give it my all and that is what I vow to do until the very end,” Rohit Sharma said as quoted by IANS.

“We have a mixed bag of both T20 veterans and young-blood talent in the team. With this combination of experience and energy, I am confident that we are looking at a good series. Pat Cummins’ injury is very unfortunate,” Rohit added.

Rohit  Sharma further added possessing a calm mind is really important in any sport. The right-hander added that being calm means you are focussed on the job at hand.

“I have realised that being calm is nothing but being extremely focused on what you are doing. You blur everything in the sidelines and concentrate on a target. Training in a sport inculcates this very naturally and it is but natural that it spills over off the ground as well,” Rohit added.

Indians have won only four matches out of the ten matches they have played. Thus, their journey to the playoff stages is going to be a difficult one.

The reigning champions should win almost all their matches to keep breathing in the race of final four in the tournament.
