T20 World Cup: Rohit is eager to do something special in Super Eight, gave this statement on Caribbean conditions

Indian captain Rohit Sharma admitted before the Super Eight stage match against Afghanistan that the schedule is going to be a bit busy at this stage, but his players are ready for it. Rohit also said that the players are eager to do something special. India will start its Super Eight campaign against Afghanistan on June 20. The team will then play against Bangladesh on June 22 and Australia in St. Lucia on June 24.

The Indian squad participated in a lengthy practice session, during which senior players such as Virat Kohli and Rohit spent more time than normal on the net. During this time, as Rohit was seen conversing on the pitch, Virat Kohli, who struggled in the group stage, sweated it out in the nets and practiced batting extensively. The Indian squad overcame Ireland, Pakistan, and the United States in the league round, but their last group match against Canada was canceled owing to the damp ground in Florida. India advanced to the Super Eight after finishing first in Group A.

In a video uploaded by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Rohit said, "After playing the first match, we will play the next two matches in a gap of three or four days. It is going to be a bit hectic but we are used to all these things. We travel a lot and play a lot so it is never going to be an excuse. There is a lot of enthusiasm in the team to do something special. It is a good way to start the second phase. It clearly shows that everyone wants to make a difference and we take our skill sessions very seriously. There is something to achieve in every skill session.

The Indian team faced adverse batting conditions during the American leg due to the drop-in pitches used by the organizers. Rohit said that the Caribbean leg brings with it a sense of familiarity with the conditions and his team will try to make the most of it. He said, we have seen a lot of matches here, we have played a lot of matches here. So everyone understands what to do here to get the result in their favor.
