Rohit said:

“I am enjoying my batting, but obviously, keeping the team’s situation in mind. It’s not like I go there and try to swing the bat always. I’m looking to play well and wield my bat properly. I need to put my team in a strong position. This is my mindset.

The scoreboard starts from zero when I am opening the match, as a batter, I have to set the tone for the game. So, I have an advantage that I’m starting things off. In the last game, we were put under pressure in the powerplay as we lost three wickets. So, I had to change the game as well. As a batter, my focus is on what is necessary at that time. What’s the requirement in the first over, the 5th over? So, I think about all these things and play according to what the situation demands,” said Rohit.
