Star Indian opener Rohit Sharma believes that the six back to back consecutive series win occurred only as a result of playing cricket as a unit. Sharma claimed that contribution from different players on different occasions becomes absolutely necessary for achieving such feats.

Indians have been phenomenal in all formats of the game by compiling wins against teams like Australia, England, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and West Indies. India now takes on New Zealand and Sri Lanka on home turf in the coming months before travelling to South Africa during the first week of January 2018.

“The way we are playing, credit goes to everyone. Because irrespective of whether you play for a city or country, you have to win a match and it is not an easy task. We have won six back-to-back series because we have played together as a unit,” expressed Rohit Sharma in a recent event according to TOI.

“If you (the team) want to win a tournament, it not that that one or two players will perform and you will win. It is essential that everybody contributes as this is a team sport. The way the team is thinking that is in one direction, which is helping the side and everyone is contributing, not just one or two players,” further expressed the three-time IPL winning captain for Mumbai Indians.

Talking about plans for the World Cup 2019, Sharma claimed that it is too early for one to comment on it looking at the duration left for the tournament. “See, there is one and half year for the World Cup. Now, it will be too early for me to comment on it. Yes, our aim is the 2019 World Cup and the preparations are on” added Sharma. India takes on the Kiwis for a 3-match ODI affair starting 22nd October in Mumbai.
