Rohit Sharma defends World Cup squad selections

Indian opening batsman Rohit Sharma would be critical to the team’s chances in the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as he has been a prolific run scorer for India at the top of the batting order over the years.

The flamboyant right-hander believes that the Indian squad announced for the upcoming mega event is good enough to win the tournament as it is like a fortress which would not be affected by outside factors being discussed in public.

“The team is like a fortress. There are 15 people inside it and whatever anyone can say from the outside, the 15 inside will not get influenced,” he said.

Moreover, he also said that he is looking forward to the challenge of leading the Indian batting along side Shikhar Dhawan in the World Cup as the young side would look towards them for motivation.
