Rohit Sharma about Virat Kohli…

Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid interacted with the media before the start of the T20 series against New Zealand. This was the first time after Rohit took over as the captain that the captain and the coach came together to interact with the media.

Rohit said that the role of Virat Kohli will remain the same as before. With his arrival in the coming matches, the team will be stronger.

Regarding the conversation with the team so far, Rahul Dravid said that Team India was busy in the World Cup, so there was less conversation. I didn’t want to bother them.

Answering a question on All-Rounder Issue, Rohit Sharma said, the team is not focusing on just one or two players. Rather, we are focused on what will help us become a successful team.

On the vision for Team India, Dravid said – We do not have any priority. All three formats are important for us. We also have to note that there are many ICC tournaments ahead. We have to prepare keeping this in mind. My vision is that we have to improve ourselves overall. For this, all formats will be taken care of.

On the workload of the players, Dravid said that workflow management is an essential part. We have to manage the workload.

Rohit added, we will ask our players to play fearlessly. He said- It is very important in T20 format that the player should not be afraid of anything. He should go to the field and play fearlessly. If it turns out to be successful then there is no problem. My role and the coach’s role in this is important because we want them to have faith in us. We need to tell him that he is safe in this team.

Regarding different teams for different formats, Dravid said – We are not in a position at the moment to have separate teams for each format. We have to take care of the mental and physical health of the players for the time being. I want our players to be healthy. I want to work on it and assure them that everyone will get rest. We don’t have many players who play all formats. In such a situation, he has a chance to prove himself. Right now I am not focusing on different teams for each format.
