Rohit Sharma’s Journey to Recovery: Overcoming the World Cup Final Loss

Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Jasprit Bumrah will make their first appearance in the Test series after the ODI World Cup 2023.

India vs South Africa Test series begins tomorrow (26 December 2023), and Team India captain Rohit Sharma addressed the media for the first time since the World Cup 2023 final loss.

Rohit opens up on his heartbreaking World Cup final loss and reveals how he overcame it, saying, “It took me time to come out but you’ve got to move on. We got a lot of encouragement from the outside world and that motivated me personally to get up.”

Team India coach Rahul Dravid also said that players have already moved on from the World Cup final loss and are focusing on winning the Test series in South Africa.

Meanwhile, India’s Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Jasprit Bumrah are set to make their first appearance in tomorrow’s Test series after the ODI World Cup 2023.

The Test series holds a lot of significance for the Rohit Sharma-led side as they have never won a red-ball series in South Africa.
