Rohit Sharma, the all-formats captain of India, is renowned for his hilarious press conferences and post-match exchanges. The flashy batsman for the Men in Blue attended the ICC Captains' Call event on Wednesday, which was put on by the international cricket governing body in preparation for the One Day International (ODI) World Cup. Rohit was perplexed by a reporter's question about the last ODI World Cup final between New Zealand and England at the Captain's Day event in Ahmedabad.
Indian captain Rohit was questioned about whether England and New Zealand should have shared the World Cup 2019 victory following the thrilling Super-Over match. Eoin Morgan and company were declared champions after the ICC World Cup 2019 final ended in a draw even after the Super Over due to England's better boundary count. "Sir, woh mera kaam nahin. It is not my responsibility to make that decision, sir, so woh ghoshit karna hamaara kaam nahin hai. During the Captains' call event, Rohit said to the reporter, "It is not my responsibility to proclaim the winner.
Jos Buttler, the captain of England, needed the assistance of Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, to comprehend Rohit Sharma's funny response to a query during the Captains' Day press conference prior to the 2023 World Cup, which will start on Thursday, October 5, in India.
The inquiry and the answer were both in Hindi, so Buttler understandably didn't comprehend Rohit's point even though the entire room was in splits after the response. Buttler was spotted hearing Babar Azam's explanation of the entire episode. Here is a clip:
The ODI World Cup begins on Thursday with the defending winners England taking on the runners-up from the last tournament, New Zealand, at Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium. The hosts of the ICC World Cup in India traveled 3,400 miles from one end of the nation to the next as a warm-up, only to lose to the elements. Rain in Guwahati and Thiruvananthapuram forced the cancellation of both of India's practice games. On Sunday in Chennai, the two-time champions India will begin its championship defense against the five-time champion Australia.
"We appreciated having those days off. We have been discussing it in relation to the heat and other things. Recently, we've been playing a lot of cricket. We played three games versus Australia after the Asia Cup, which helped us gauge everyone's progress and what the squad needed to do as a whole, according to Rohit.
After helping India win the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka, Rohit is going to the ODI World Cup. At the ICC World Cup, the 36-year-old encourages his teammates to ignore the pressure and concentrate on the "job at hand." When the Men in Blue last won the ODI World Cup in 2011, India served as the hosts. "I am aware of the stakes. The team's guys are aware of the issues at hand. For us, it involves clearing our minds of everything and concentrating on what we want to do as a team, Rohit said.
