Rohit Sharma expects home backing to help him win the ODI World Cup for the first time in 12 years


India won the prized trophy with MS Dhoni and company in 2011 for the nation’s final ODI World Cup victory.

In order for his team to win the ODI World Cup in India, captain Rohit Sharma will rely on the “massive” home support they will receive.

In 2011, MS Dhoni and company won India’s final ODI World Cup championship at home.

It was the closest I’ve ever seen it. I didn’t make the team, not even when we won in 2011. However, despite the trophy’s stunning appearance, it also has a lot of history and memories attached to it.

The ICC quoted Rohit, who is now in the US, as saying, “Yeah, so, it looks beautiful and hopefully we can lift it, fingers crossed.”
Ten venues in India will host the competition, which starts on October 5.

“I am certain that we will receive a tonne of support at every stadium and venue we visit. Because it’s the World Cup, everyone is anticipating this and the World Cup’s return to India after a 12-year absence…You are aware that the last time we played a 50-over World Cup was in 2011. The country hosted a 20-over World Cup in 2016, but a 50-over World Cup after 12 years has people extremely thrilled, and we can already feel the excitement at home.

I’m looking forward to performing at all locations. Rohit recalled the 2003 World Cup by saying, “In 2003, India played pretty well up till the finals. Sachin Tendulkar was an incredible hitter who amassed a tonne of runs.

“And then there was the 2007 World Cup, which was terrible since we didn’t have a good time and didn’t even qualify after the league stage.

“2011 was a memorable year for all of us; I remember watching every single match from home, every single ball that was bowled and played.”

“There were two kinds of emotions: one was obvious disappointment that I wasn’t a part of it.” I decided not to watch the World Cup, but the second recollection I have is that India was playing so well from the quarter-finals on.” Rohit had performed admirably in the 2019 edition, amassing five hundreds.
