Rohit Sharma’s bold and fearless approach to batting in the 2023 World Cup is going to influence Indian cricket in a big way. Despite his outstanding performance of 597 runs, 31 sixes, and a record-breaking strike rate of 126, India ended up as the runners-up. According to Suryakumar Yadav, the upcoming batters are keen on following Rohit’s aggressive style. They aim to replicate his success in the next World Cup, which is just six months away.

Surya in press conference

“What he’s done in the World Cup is one thing which will set an example,” Suryakumar, india’s captain for 5 matches T20 series against Australia , before the eve of the first match in Visakhapatnam.

“It was a completely different Rohit Sharma that you saw. I mean, he literally walked the talk; what we spoke about in the team meetings, he did the same thing on the ground. We are very proud of him. As a leader he led by example and we’ll try and replicate the same thing.”

“I am also young yaar!” Surya replied with a smile on his face , when he was asked about captaining the ‘young’ guys in the side.

“What I told them [squad] when I met them in the afternoon today was let’s be very selfless when we go into the field,” Suryakumar said. “Because I’m a guy who doesn’t think too much about the personal milestones and instead thinks of the team’s goal. And I’ve always told them that you have to keep the team first and then whatever comes after that, you can take your call. And I’ve played with them a lot of times during the IPL and a few India games as well, so they know how I function. And it wasn’t that difficult and we are really excited to go about in the series.”

Now leading India as captain, Suryakumar finds comfort in continuing the style of cricket that defined India’s play in the World Cup, with Rohit Sharma being the prime example.

“I mean, it is obviously a little disappointing. But at the end, when you look back at the journey, it was a really great campaign [for] each and every member – not only the players but also the support staff.

“All of India and all our families were very proud of the way each and everyone displayed their talent on the ground. That was the positive, the brand of cricket which we played throughout the tournament, and we can be very proud of that.”
