Skipper Rohit Sharma doesn’t want to clutter things by “thinking too far ahead” about the ODI World Cup and said he and head coach Rahul Dravid have a “fair idea” of how they would approach the showpiece to be held in India in October-November next year.
Asked if World Cup preparations start with the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh starting here on Sunday, Rohit made it clear that there is still time before his team can start thinking specifically about the marquee event.
“Every time you play a game, its preparing for something. The World Cup is still 8-9 months (10 months) from now. We can’t think so far ahead. We need to keep an eye on what we need to do as team,” Rohit told mediapersons ahead of the first ODI.
