Rohit concerned about dimensions
"That's one of the challenges you have in this tournament. In Dubai, the dimension of the grounds was almost the same. Here it is different in different games. Adelaide is one ground where you need to find out different ways. The side boundaries are smaller here. Melbourne was totally different."
"I remember talking about playing fearlessly. Looking at the conditions here is not about coming and swinging the bat. It is about adapting to conditions."
Although Sharma has been formidable as a captain, he still hasn't fired as an opening batter. The skipper has been unable to churn out any worthwhile runs, his return to full form will be of utmost importance to take on the mighty England in the semi-finals.
