World T20 too far, need to focus on winning WI series: Rohit

Mumbai, Dec 10 (IANS) India opener Rohit Sharma has said that he is not thinking too far ahead with talks going about the composition of the team for next year''s World T20 and is focused only on the series-deciding third T20I against West Indies to be played on Wednesday evening.

India won the first match of the series by six wickets while registering their highest-ever successful run chase in T20Is in Hyderabad. However, in the second T20I, the hosts came out with a lacklustre performance and were comprehensively beaten in Thiruvananthapuram, thus forcing the series to be decided at the Wankhede.

"See, I don''t want to keep saying that we are trying to build a squad for the (T20) World Cup. It is still a long-long way ahead," Rohit told the media on Tuesday. "We just need to focus on winning the series and that will keep us in good state, moving forward."

With next year''s World T20 in sight, India are giving chances to youngsters in order to build a strong pool of players from which they can eventually select the final squad for the prestigious tournament.

According to the 32-year-old, what the team needs to focus upon is working on their basics and winning the games in order to prepare for World T20 slated to be played in Australia.

"If we keep winning games, keep doing the right things on the field, the composition of the team will take care (by itself)," he said.
