Rohit Sharma’s childhood coach Dinesh Lad opens up about Rohit Sharma’s potential retirement after the World Cup. Dinesh Lad is thrilled by India’s performance in the World Cup under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy and showed confidence in the captain’s ability to overcome New Zealand’s threat in the semifinal.
In an exclusive interview with ANI, Hitman’s childhood coach gave an insight about Rohit’s future after the World Cup. He considered Rohit’s age factor (36) and contemplated the possibility of his retirement. Dinesh said, “Chances really look as if this could be his last World Cup”. However, Rohit Sharma hasn’t announced anything about his retirement yet, hence coach Dinesh Lad emphasized Rohit’s burning desire to win the cup.
Dinesh is not only thrilled about team India’s collective performance but also Rohit Sharma’s individual performance. Rohit Sharma along with his opening partner Subhman Gill provided a solid foundation for middle-order batsmen to score more runs. Rohit Sharma has scored 503 runs in nine innings and a striking rate of 121.50. Coach Dinesh has also expressed his hidden desire to see his obedient student lifting the trophy on 19th November. He added if India keep performing like the group stages, they can surely win the World Cup.
