Kolkata: Rohit Sharma led Indian cricket team is in red hot form in the ongoing Asia Cup as they have won all three matches in this tournament and they will again face arch-rivals Pakistan in a super four game at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Ahead of that former Indian cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly backed the Men in Blue again as he feels that the Indian team is playing better cricket than Pakistan since in last ten years.
“It will depend how the team plays tomorrow. But I can say that India is a far superior team than Pakistan and we are playing better cricket than them in last ten years time. Pakistan has won one or two matches against us just like the Champions Trophy last year. But as a whole India is a better team,” said Sourav at the sidelines of an event in Kolkata.
On being asked whether Pakistan’s win in the final of the Champions Trophy against India was a one day wonder, Sourav replied,” You can see this happen in cricket on any day. On your day you can beat any team and tomorrow that can happen again.”
Rohit Sharma is leading the Indian cricket team for the first time in a full tournament in the absence of regular skipper Virat Kohli and he is doing the job really well. Under his captaincy Indian Premier League side Mumbai Indians won three titles and here too he is doing everything right. Sourav too looked really pleased with Rohit’s leadership.
“He is doing really well as a captain. He has given three IPL trophies to Mumbai Indians and here to there is all possibility that India will win the Asia Cup under him,” added Ganguly.
A lot of people are raising questions on why the teams are forced to play in 45 degrees heat in Dubai. But Ganguly didn’t think that way.” The weather of Dubai is always like this. We have faced the same thing while we were there to play. You will get soothing weather there in the evening but in the afternoon it’s just unbearable,” said Sourav.
Kedar Jadav is doing really well with the ball for the Men in Blue in this competition, but Sourav wants to see how he bats in the middle in this tournament. “He hasn’t batted yet in this tournament. He is in the team as a batsman and I will comment anything after watching him bat,” concluded Ganguly.
