Rohit Sharma’s take on India’s struggles of winning ICC tournaments. The objective must be to avoid any injury problems in the team, as stated by Rohit.
Rohit Sharma, the captain of team India, has been questioned regularly for the squad’s failure to win ICC competitions since 2013, much like his predecessor Virat Kohli. India’s most recent setback occurred in the World Test Championship 2023 final. Where they were defeated humiliatingly by Australia by a score of 209 runs and lost the championship.
India has missed two opportunities to win an ICC championship since Rohit Sharma became the captaincy. India eliminate from the T20 World Cup 2022 after losing the semi-final to eventual champions England by a score of 10 wickets prior to the WTC Final. The Indian squad is currently preparing for their first WTC 2023–25 assignment, a two-match Test series against the West Indies.
Before the red-ball assignment in Dominica, skipper Rohit Sharma spoke out at a press conference when asked why India hasn’t won an ICC championship in the last 10 years. He said:
“I want everyone to be available first. All of my players to be readily available at all times. I don’t want to worry about getting hurt. That’s the top priority,” he stated.
The Men in Blue, in Rohit’s opinion, have been playing some really brilliant cricket
They are still unable to win. He promised that the group would work harder and make even more progress, but he also added that they also needed the ‘luck factor’ to work in their favor. Rohit continued by stating:

I hope we accept the challenge and play well: Rohit
The last ICC championship won by Team India was the Champions Trophy, which they won in 2013 under the leadership of MS Dhoni. With the ODI World Cup fast approaching, India has a chance to end the curse exactly ten years later. India won the 50-over World Cup in 2011 while competing at home, and the Men in Blue will be hoping to win their third ODI World Cup championship this year with a similar opportunity.
The team will play the Caribbean side in two Tests, three ODIs, and five T20Is before to the crucial competition. When referring to the next tour, Rohit said:
“Each series you play for India is difficult. Every game matters, whether it’s the first WTC cycle, the last one, or one in between. In two cycles, we played two finals, but we fell short of our goals. There are many new players on this team, which is new. In this cycle, there will be a new challenge. The West Indies excel at home. The fact that they have a strong home record will present a good challenge for our team. I hope we rise to the occasion and do well.
