Last time we played Pakistan the result didn't go our way, but the team is playing differently now: Rohit Sharma

 MUMBAI: The impending version of the T20 Asia Cup in UAE, which starts off on August 27 and finishes on September 11, will see India miss pro pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who is out because of a back physical issue.

Be that as it may, gone are the days when India's speed bowling assault looked frail when their strike bowler was out harmed. The development of an endless series of noteworthy quick bowlers has seen India's speed bowling stocks get more extravagant than any time in recent memory.

With India playing constant cricket and the danger of players getting harmed or being tainted by Covid-19, skipper Rohit Sharma focused on that he and mentor Rahul Dravid had examined about "making a seat strength," taking into account how much cricket the group plays, showing up the injury factor.

"Bumrah, (Mohammed) Shami and this multitude of folks won't be with the Indian group always, so you need to attempt to set up different folks. I and Rahul bhai talked about how we will make our seat strength since that will be exceptionally significant considering how much cricket we play, taking into account the injury elements and everything. We never need to be a group that depends on a couple of people, we need to be a group where everybody can contribute and assist the group with winning all alone. We need to be that sort of a group and that is the reason we need to offer the young people whatever number chances as could be expected under the circumstances and obviously, you have senior players around them. They can be of good assistance," Rohit expressed here on Wednesday.

Details put out by Cricinfo propose that 48 players showed up for the India men's group in 2021, while in 2022, the number is 39 up to this point. Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj, Prasidh Krishna and Shardul Thakur are among the numerous quicks who have dazzled.

With the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia now only two months away, Rohit said, "There are still around more than two months left for the T20 World Cup. Before that, we have the Asia Cup and two home series against Australia and South Africa. Thus, 80-90 percent of your group is set, obviously there could be three-four changes if at all relying upon the circumstances. At this point, we have been playing in India and will play in UAE, so the circumstances in Australia will be unique. We really want to check what suits our group in Australia," he said uninvolved of an assortment send off coordinated by Adidas.

With India set to play main adversaries Pakistan two times in the association stage - and maybe threefold assuming the two sides make the last - in the impending Asia Cup in UAE, there is a lot of fervor around those conflicts.

"The Asia Cup is occurring after quite a while, yet we played Pakistan last year in Dubai, where clearly the outcome didn't turn out well for us. Yet, the Asia Cup is different at this point. The group is playing distinctively and has arranged in an unexpected way, so a ton of things have changed from that point. However, for our purposes, we really want to survey the circumstances, remember the way that we will play in 40 or more degrees. We really want to evaluate that multitude of elements and plan as needs be."

Rohit stated that his group was centered around the cycles, as opposed to in which group it would play.

"My thinking has forever been that we won't zero in on the rival, however we will keep on playing our game. We played against West Indies, England and in the two cases, we didn't ponder who our resistance was, however we centered around things that we needed to do collectively and what we needed to accomplish. Essentially, in the Asia Cup, our emphasis will be on what to accomplish collectively and not think about who we are confronting - be it Pakistan, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka," he pushed.
