Ahead of its first Twenty20 International against Australia, India’s vice-captain Rohit Sharma on Monday stated that prior experience of playing on the pace-friendly pitch would help his side here at the Brisbane Cricket Ground.
Considering Brisbane as the fastest pitch in Australia, Sharma said, “Australia in Australia is always going to be dangerous. So you got to be prepared for it. We don’t need a few individuals to step up. We need a whole lot of guys to put their hands on different occasions and take up the challenge.”
The 31-year-old, who is the highest scorer (2207 runs) for India in the format, said, “Last time (2016) when we were here, we won the series by 3-0.” Talking about the ‘Men in Blue’ players, Sharma stressed that most of the batsmen are experienced, while only a couple of them are new.
