IND vs WI: “Don’t Agree That We Were Playing Conservative” Captain Rohit Sharma: India is all set to begin its five-game T20I series against West Indies on 29th July. The first game will be played at Brian Lara Stadium at 8:00 pm IST. Rohit Sharma will captain the Indian team after resting through the India vs West Indies ODI series. Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, and Suryakumar Yadav will return for the T20I series.

Indian Captain Rohit Sharma held a press conference in the West Indies where he talked about all the questions. Sharma was asked about their team playing conservatively, and he responded, “We haven’t gotten the result in the World Cup, that does not mean we were playing bad cricket. And I do not agree that we were playing conservative cricket if you lose 1-2 matches in the World Cup, it seems like we did not take the chances. If you look at the games we have played before the World Cup, we won 80% of those. I do not understand how can you win these many matches if you are conservative.”

“We lost the World Cup, but it can happen, but that does mean we were not playing freely. Lately, it is not like we have completely changed something, we have just given players the freedom to express themselves. If you play freely, performances will come out. The people on the outside should maintain peace the way we are playing cricket, there will be failures, and the results might not go our way, but it is okay as we are trying something. It can happen that mistakes take place, but that does not mean that the players are bad. With time, everyone has to change, we are changing, so people on the outside also need to change.”

Captain was also questioned if there are spots required to fill for the World Cup. “There are some spots that we need to fill, but we also know what we need to do to fill them. We will try to address all the issues in the coming matches, we want to give guys the freedom. We can talk about preparation and technique, but the players should be left alone when the match comes. We just want them to play like they do when playing for franchises or state teams. Our job is to eliminate the pressure, we are just trying to create an environment where guys can play freely.”
