Team India skipper Rohit Sharma on Wednesday said about India’s dry spell in bagging World Cup titles ahead of their high-voltage clash against Pakistan on October 23.

The aggressive opener revealed how they are going to approach every match irrespective of the stage.

 India last won a world cup 11 years ago and Rohit knows his players will have to tick all the boxes to win the coveted trophy Down the Under.

“Our players have to keep themselves calm and composed during the game to get the desired results that we are looking for. It has been a while since we won the World Cup,” said Rohit.

“Our motive and thought process is to win the mega event, but we know we need to do a lot of things right to clinch the title. 

So one step at a time for us and focus on each team we are going to come against and not think about semifinals or finals,” Rohit said in a video posted on bcci.tv.

India will take on arch-rivals Pakistan in their opening game in Melbourne on October 23.

“It is a big match to start with. But we are relaxed and focused on our job at hands. That is going to be the key for us,” Rohit added.
