Rohit Sharma: Conditions in England key to finalise vacant spots

Conditions will be a key to decide whether we take a extra spinner or pacer

Indian limited overs opener Rohit Sharma believes that IPL performance shouldn’t tinker on the selections of players for the World Cup. Speaking at the launch of a new cricket website Cricket.com Rohit said “We have played a lot of cricket over the past few months and the IPL performance shouldn’t have any bearing on the selection because it’s a totally different ball game”. He was accompanied by Smriti Mandhana, Mahela Jayewardene, Kevin Pietersen and Brian Lara.

Rohit further adds that the World Cup is pretty much settled except few spots needs to be filled. He further reverberates on the point that it’s the decision of the captain and coach to decide whether they want an extra batsmen, spinner or an all-rounder depending on the conditions in England. Last time when India toured England the conditions were dry and if it remains the same then ideally we should go with an extra spinner.


Talking about playing IPL before an important world event like ICC World Cup Rohit said that it’s not the first time. In the past we have played some important test series or ODI series after the conclusion of IPL. Rohit feels that playing such a tournament keeps you in the groove and the match practice is very important. He gave an illustrative example of Jasprit Bumrah who feels that the more he bowls the better for him leading to such an important tournament. India are playing their encounter of the ICC World Cup 2019 on June 5th against the Proteas.
