Though speculation is rife that Team India captain and veteran batsman Rohit Sharma may retire after the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024, the veteran batsman is in no mood to bid adieu to the game.

In a recent interaction, Rohit revealed that he has no plans to bid adieu to cricket in the next two to three years and wants to win the T20 World Cup badly.

“I really want to win that World Cup. There is also a WTC Final at Lord’s in 2025 as well, hopefully, we make it there in the finals,” said Rohit in an episode of Breakfast With Champions.

Well, Rohit’s comments indicated that he wants to play the 2027 ODI World Cup which will be hosted jointly by South Africa, Zimbabwe and Namibia.

Rohit is currently playing for Mumbai Indians (MI) in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League purely as a batsman. However, the veteran batsman has another major task at hand. He will lead India at the T20 World Cup 2024 in USA and West Indies. However, for Rohit the 50-over World Cup is ultimate.

“50 Over World Cup is actual World Cup for me. We’ve grown up watching the 50 Over World Cup,” said Rohit.

Notably, Rohit has led MI to five IPL titles. He was made India’s all-format captain in 2021 after Virat Kohli decided to step down. Fans are hopeful that under Rohit’s captaincy, India will win the forthcoming T20 World Cup 2024.
