Cricket has resumed, IPL is also coming back starting from 19th of September IPL will be played in UAE. Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma in a conversation with PTI said, “I believe in a theory that when you are captain, you are the least important person.” Let’s see his whole conversation with PTI.
Rohit told PTI in an exclusive interview, “I believe in a theory that when you are captain, you are the least important person. Others become more important in the larger scheme of things. It works differently for different leaders but as far as I am concerned, this theory works for me.”
Rohit also spoke about MS Dhoni’s anger management and his coolness on the field he said, “Not showing anger is not a conscious effort. That’s an instinct that you have and you don’t try and be someone that you are not. Try and be yourself all the time.”
He added, “You do get angry, lose temper at times but it’s important not to show it to your teammates. Hiding your emotions is the most crucial part.”
Sharma says he will slowly build on his strength, stamina, and skills during the next one month after the long lay-off, “Hopefully, the gym will open this week and I can start my indoor (strength training) sessions. Right now, due to Mumbai monsoons, you can’t train outdoor. I am planning to write a letter to MCA (on using indoor facilities).”
“It’s the longest gap that I have ever had in my career without holding a bat. It will be a bit challenging. Unless I play, I will not know where I am and how I feel but the body is completely fine. I feel physically more strong than ever because of the last four months,” Rohit said.
He further added, “It’s a good environment to be in. It’s challenging but I love challenges and I want an environment like this. My mind has been relaxed for the last five months. Your planning changes a lot. Pitches in Dubai are a bit on the slower side. The pitches are not so different from India but yes overhead conditions will be a big factor as you are not always used to playing in 40 degrees which can be a bit of a challenge.”
