The vice-captain of the Indian cricket team, Rohit Sharma has emphasized on the fact that the Men in Blue need to win at least two World Cups in the next three years.
He said this while having an Instagram live session with Suresh Raina, with three World Cup tournaments lined up in the next few years.
Known as one of the most successful batsmen of the modern era, the Indian opener had a brilliant World Cup 2019 campaign, as he piled on 648 runs at a staggering average of 81.00 in just nine matches in the tournament. He is hailed as one of the most devastating batsmen and is also the only cricketer to have three ODI triple tons to his name.
Speaking on the live session, Sharma said, "It is not easy to win the World Cup, there is a different feeling altogether when you win that tournament, feelings and emotions are attached to that tournament. It's difficult to beat seven-eight teams and win a world cup final. But when you win the world cup your joy doubles."
He added, "I think we have an opportunity like there are three World Cups lined up, two T20 World Cups and one 50-over World Cup, and I have said many times that we must win at least two world cups."
Rohit Sharma is also the captain of the IPL franchise Mumbai Indians and has led them to four IPL trophies since he was appointed the skipper in 2013. In the last edition of the Cricket World Cup that was played in England and Wales, the classy right-handed batsman was the first to score five centuries in a single edition.
Now it is to be seen whether the Indian cricket team responds to the appeal of their vice-captain and how they chalk out their game plan to bring the silverware home in the next three years.
