I think, at this point in time, he would be looking forward to the game starts. Because there has been so much talk off the ground. All the cricketers will be looking forward to the game starts because then everything else quietens down, it’s about the cricket,” said Ojha in a chat with Sports Today.
“They were trying to corner Rohit Sharma because the new Rohit is a person who can make a lot of difference to the team. As a leader, he can be a great help to Ajinkya Rahane. As a batsman, if he gets going, it will be very tough. Maybe, they thought of trying and unsettle our boys. Rohit Sharma, with all these that have happened to him, he will be much more focussed and really looking forward to the Test match,” concluded Ojha.
