While many might have already started thinking about the next year's World Cup scheduled to be held in October-November, skipper Rohit Sharma is eased out at the moment.

According to the 35-year-old, there's a lot of time to think about the mega-event that will take place in India. He mentioned that their current focus is on the upcoming series against Bangladesh where he wants his side to play decent cricket instead of having too many things in mind.

"I mean, see, every time we play a game, it's a preparation for something that is going to come in the future. But the World Cup is still 8-9 months from now. We cannot think so far ahead,"

He was clear on the idea that the everything in lead up to the World Cup will happen simultaneously without impacting their preparation.  

"But yeah, we will keep an eye on what we need to do as a team, where we can improve, and how it comes along for us. I think it's very, very important for us not to start thinking about so many things about the World Cup; this is the combination, that is the combination, we need to play this guy, that guy."

Rohit will be back to lead the Men in Blue against the Tigers in a three-match ODI and two-match Test series beginning on the 4th of December.
