India’s opening batsman Rohit Sharma feels that the Indian team should follow the footsteps of IPL based franchise Mumbai Indians in the ICC events. Mumbai Indians have been continuously doing well in the IPL. The team has won 4 titles under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.
However, on the other hand, India’s performance in the knock-out stages of the ICC events has been vulnerable since ICC Champions Trophy 2013. "Team India should play ICC events like Mumbai Indians play IPL – (lose a few at the start and continue winning all the games till the end of the tournament) to climb the points table gradually and eventually win the tournament.", Rohit Sharma said.
Since ICC champions Trophy 2013, India lost the 2014 T20 World Cup (final), 2015 ODI World Cup (semi-final), 2016 T20 World Cup (semi-final), 2017 Champions Trophy (final) and 2019 ODI World Cup (semi-final).
