Rohit Sharma wants to play 2027 ODI world Cup

India captain Rohit Sharma says he plans to “continue for a few more years” as he “really” wants to win the 2027 ODI World Cup after the trophy slipped through his grip thanks to just “one bad day” in 2023. “I haven’t really thought about retirement. I don’t know where life takes you. I am playing well at the moment and I am thinking of continuing for a few more years. I really want to win that World Cup,” he said on a YouTube chat show.

“The 50-over World Cup is the actual World Cup. We have grown up watching the 50-over World Cup. There is the World Test Championship final happening at Lord’s in 2025. Hopefully, we will make it there,” added Rohit, who will be leading the side in this year’s T20 World Cup.

Rohit still finds it tough to come to terms with India’s defeat to Australia in the World Cup final. “We played well until that final. When we won the semi-final, I thought, we were just one step away. I thought, what’s that one thing that can make us lose that final, and honestly, nothing came to my mind,” he said.
