IND vs ENG: Winning the Test series on Indian soil still remains an almost impossible target for foreign teams. Its latest victim has been England under the captaincy of Ben Stokes, whom Team India defeated 4-1 in the 5-match series. After losing the first match of the series, Team India bounced back and won the next four matches. Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Team India registered a big victory in the last test held in Dharamshala. On one hand, Team India became the champion, on the other hand, Rohit Sharma's statement on his retirement from cricket became a topic of discussion.

On Saturday, March 9, the third day of the Dharamsala Test, Team India's first innings ended at 477 runs and then the Indian spinners bowled out England for just 195 runs in the second innings. In this way, Team India won the last test by a huge margin of one innings and 64 runs and won the series 4-1. After this victory, an interview of captain Rohit Sharma came, in which he answered the questions about retirement.

What did Rohit say on the question of retirement?

Actually, this interview appeared for the first time on January 24, just before the start of the Test series. Former Indian wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik had done this interview of captain Rohit for the series broadcaster Jio Cinema. In this, when there was talk about retiring from the game, the star batsman told on which day he would leave cricket. Rohit said that if one day he wakes up and feels that he is no longer fit (to play), then he will speak openly and tell everyone.

However, Rohit, who is going to turn 37 in April, also made it clear that he has no such intention at the moment because in the last 2-3 years, he has been playing his best cricket and his game has also become better than before. Now, after helping the team win the Test series with the young players and making an important contribution by scoring two centuries, Rohit's desire to continue playing would have increased further. In such a situation, Indian fans will continue to get the opportunity to see this star opener destroying the bowlers.

Rohit's next target

After his strong performance in the Test, Rohit will now have his eyes set on the T20 World Cup 2024 to be held in June, in which he will lead Team India. Last year, after coming close to victory in the ODI World Cup, the defeat in the final had broken the hearts of the entire Team India and the Indian fans including Rohit and in such a situation, he will try to heal this wound in June.
