Here’s what Rohit Sharma said:
Lowest point of his cricket career
Not getting picked for the 2011 World Cup squad, that was the saddest moment as it was happening in our own backyard, the final was played at my home ground
However, the swashbuckling Indian batsman admitted that it was due to his own mistakes that he did not make it to the squad.
It was due to my performances, I was not at my best," said Sharma when asked why he did not make the 2011 World Cup squad.
We should first think about the country. The situation needs to get better first then we can talk about the IPL. Let life get back to normal first.
Lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic
Thanks to the lockdown, all the Indian metropolis are wearing a deserted look.
I haven't seen Bombay like this before. As cricketers, we don't get time with family. So much of tours and cricket is there. This is a time to spend with them and loads of it.
It is very hard actually (to stay fit). I live in a building which has about 54 floors and we had to stop all the indoor and outdoor activities. So just been running up and down the stairs. Not 54 floors but about two or three floors up and down and doing some conditioning exercises here and there.
Miss playing cricket
I miss playing the game. I was injured for two months so have been itching to play. When I got the news
that everything was going to be postponed I was very sad. I was really looking forward to playing in the IPL.
Important for us to be disciplined at these times. This is the time you can do something for the country, stay inside, social distancing is very important. I know people will go out to buy groceries, but I hope everything is followed,
