India, currently the top-ranked ODI team, is gearing up for the 50-overs World Cup with the ambition to replicate their 2011 victory on home soil, following a recent 2-1 series win against Australia. Aware of Australia’s formidable track record in global events, India’s captain Rohit Sharma cautioned his team not to underestimate their first match opponents, the five-time champions.

Speaking ahead of their clash with Australia, Rohit emphasized, “Australia being Australia, we know how they play in ICC tournaments. There is a reason they have so many championships. So, for us, it will be crucial to adhere to our team’s game plan, focus on our strengths, and adapt to the conditions.”

Rohit highlighted the familiarity of the conditions for Australia, thanks to their participation in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He acknowledged Australia’s strategic approach, stating, “They play a lot of cricket here. They plan their schedule well, especially with the World Cup in India, ensuring they compete in plenty of ODIs.”

Regarding the participation of opener Shubman Gill, who is recovering from dengue fever, Rohit mentioned that a decision would be made closer to the match. In case Gill is unavailable, left-handed Ishan Kishan is likely to be Rohit’s opening partner, though KL Rahul remains an option.

Rohit expressed confidence in India’s batting lineup’s adaptability, asserting, “The seven-eight batters in our squad bring a different dimension to our team. They bring diverse styles to our side, which is why they are part of the tournament.”

He stressed the importance of flexibility and versatility, stating, “I’ve always emphasized being flexible and versatile in our approach. All these players bring those qualities to the team.
