“I don’t believe too much in last time…” Sourav Ganguly Interesting Statement On Rohit-Virat

As Rohit Sharma takes on the role of leading India at the 2023 World Cup, his objective is clear to replicate the success achieved by MS Dhoni’s iconic Indian team in 2011 by ending the nation’s long wait for a 50-over world title. Former opener Virender Sehwag highlighted the significance of the 2011 World Cup, where India played for the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. Similarly, Sehwag believes the current Indian team will be determined to win the prestigious trophy for Virat Kohli, just as they did for Tendulkar.

Rohit Sharma inherited a team that had previously won championships when he took over as captain in 2021. Replacing Kohli as the all-format captain, Rohit led India to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2022. However, they were outplayed by Australia in the 2023 Test Championship final. As the 2023 World Cup approaches, Rohit will be eager to add another title to his captaincy resume and fulfill India’s aspirations.

Both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been leading the Indian batting lineup for a decade. With the 2023 World Cup potentially marking the twilight phase of their white-ball careers, questions arise about their future. Former India captain Sourav Ganguly addressed this matter, emphasizing the importance of performances over age. Ganguly noted that with regular world tournaments in T20 and 50-over formats, it’s not just about one specific event. Rohit and Kohli will aim for success, not only from a personal standpoint but also to win the tournament for their country.

Sourav Ganguly expressed his belief in the significance of performances rather than past experiences. He acknowledged that Rohit and Kohli are approaching their mid-30s, but the next World Cup remains uncertain. With frequent world tournaments, their focus should be on winning consistently. Ganguly stressed that as captains, Rohit and Kohli will strive to achieve victory on a grand scale, emphasizing the team’s success over personal milestones.

“I don’t believe too much in last time, first time. I believe in performances. I think they are 34-35, I don’t know what’s going to happen in the next World Cup. There are world tournaments every year T20 cricket, 50-over cricket. It’s not like as in the past when we started one every four years and then the Champions Trophy came in. So it’s about performances and I am sure Rohit as captain and Virat will be wanting to make it a big one not from a personal point of view but from winning it. I think that’s the biggest,” Ganguly told Star Sports.
