Rohit disregards IPL performance for World Cup selection

The ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) would surely help the Indian selectors to finalize their 15-man squad for the upcoming World Cup event. Players have a big incentive to do well as consistent shows can help them earn a berth for the biggest 50-over cricketing festival.

However, Mumbai Indians skipper and opening batsman Rohit Sharma possesses a different idea as he feels that the most cherished T20 tournament of the country cannot serve as a criterion for the selection of ODI World Cup.

Reviewing India’s potential World Cup squad, the 31-year old added that one cannot undermine the significance of IPL as it aids the players regarding their preparations for the mega-event. However, the form and performances of the last four years of the 50-over cricket are vital in the book of Rohit Sharma.

“While performance and form are extremely important but I feel that IPL should not be the criteria for team selection. You can’t select a team for the 50-over format from a 20-over event as IPL is a different ball game. However, it is my personal opinion,” said by the Maharashtra born player.
