Rohit Sharma interview on Breakfast with Champions

India captain Rohit Sharma is fully focused on the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. After relinquishing his captaincy duties for the Mumbai Indians, he has the opportunity to concentrate on honing his skills as a batsman, a timely move considering the T20 World Cup fast approaching in June. Despite being 36 years old and facing murmurs of potential retirement, Rohit's desire to represent India and contribute to major victories remains unwavering. His hunger for success and his determination to guide India to further triumphs on the international stage serve as a testament to his enduring passion for the sport.

In a chat on 'Breakfast With Champions', Rohit touched upon the retirement topic, saying he is still motivated to win the World Cup for India, and potentially the ICC World Test Championship final.

"I haven't really thought about retirement. But, I don't know where life takes you. I am still playing well at this point in time - so I am thinking I am going to continue for a few more years and then, I don't know. I really want to win the World Cup and there is a WTC final in 2025, hopefully India makes it," said Rohit on the show.

The sting of the 2023 ODI World Cup final defeat was still fresh for Rohit. After leading India through an undefeated tournament, the loss to Australia under Pat Cummins' captaincy was a bitter pill to swallow. It marked yet another heartbreaking exit for India from a major ICC event.

"50-over World Cup for me is the actual World Cup. We've grown up watching that World Cup. More importantly, it was happening in India in front of our home crowd. We played so well up until that final. When we won the semi-finals, I thought, now we're just a step away. We're doing all the things right."

"What's the one thing that can make us lose the World Cup? Not a single thing came to my mind. Because I thought we ticked all the boxes, we were playing good cricket. Confidence was there."

"We were all supposed to have one bad day and that I guess that was our bad day. Don't think we played bad cricket in that final, certain things didn't go our way. But Australia were slightly better than us," said Rohit.
