Team India’s limited-overs captain Rohit Sharma has admitted that winning an ICC tournament is the ultimate goal both as a player and captain. Rohit stated that while scoring centuries is good, nothing can match the feeling of lifting a World Cup trophy.
He was named Team India’s ODI captain on Wednesday. Rohit was already appointed Team T20I skipper after Virat Kohli left the role following the Men in Blue’s exit from the ICC T20 World Cup.
In a candid conversation with Boria Majumdar, Rohit stressed that he wants to win major ICC championships for Team India. The 34-year-old explained:
“You want to be the best at the sport you love. To win the championship is the best. Although you may score hundreds, the championship is what will stay with you. It’s a team effort. We play a team sport at the end of it all. It is important to me what we achieve together.
India haven’t won an ICC title since the Champions Trophy in 2013.
