India’s vice-captain, Rohit Sharma has smashed his third consecutive century and fifth in this tournament against Sri Lanka in the teams league match on Saturday. However, the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli despite being extremely consistent with the bat is unable to register a ton in this World Cup. When asked in the pre-match press conference on whether the Indian skipper misses smashing a century in the tournament, Virat said, “No, not at all. It’s been a different kind of role that I’ve had to play in the World Cup and as the Captain of the team.”

Virat Kohli also appreciated the Indian opener and said that he hopes Rohit scores two more centuries in their upcoming matches so that India can win two more matches. He also mentioned that no one in the team ever focuses on personal milestones. “Personal milestones, honestly, is something that no one ever focuses on. In a team sport, you need to adapt, and I am very happy doing that role and I hope he gets two more so that we can win two more games,” Virat said.

In a tournament as big as the World Cup, the team deals with constant pressure and the expectations of the fans. Virat said that for the Indian team, every game is full of pressure and there are always full stadiums with people who expect you to do well. He also added that even though there is always pressure, there is opportunity and the Indian team is well equipped to handle those situations.
