Ahead of the India vs Pakistan clash in the World Cup 2023, India all-rounder Hardik Pandya lauded Rohit Sharma's leadership, highlighting how Sharma has consistently supported and encouraged numerous players during his captaincy. Pandya also emphasized that under Sharma's guidance, team members have been given the freedom to showcase their skills and express themselves on the field. 

Rohit assumed the role of India's captain in November 2021, initially as the T20I skipper following Virat Kohli's resignation. Subsequently, when Kohli stepped down from captaincy in all formats, he was entrusted with the responsibility of leading India across formats. Pandya emphasized that the India opener has been steadfast in supporting and providing numerous players with significant opportunities during his captaincy tenure. 

“I think since he has come, he has backed a lot of boys which I think we see the result now. The boys are going and kind of expressing themselves. Rohit has been special in giving them enough ample opportunities and at the same point of time telling them you know what, I got it back”, Pandya said in an ICC video.

Rohit Sharma downplays India vs Pakistan hype ahead of the clash

Rohit Sharma is currently captaining the Indian cricket team in the ICC World Cup 2023, where they have enjoyed a perfect record, winning both of their matches. In their most recent game against Afghanistan, 'Hitman's brilliant century played a pivotal role in India securing a victory. This achievement followed India's recent triumph in the Asia Cup 2023. With a home advantage, the 36-year-old aspires to lead his team to victory in the ICC World Cup 2023. 

Ahead of their clash against Pakistan, the Indian captain made an effort to minimize the hype surrounding the upcoming clash with Pakistan. During the pre-match press conference at the Narendra Modi Stadium, he stressed that his team would approach this match much like they have approached previous ones, downplaying the significance of the encounter.
