Rohit Sharma interacts with Indiaโ€™s U-19 cricketers ahead of Asia Cup

Indiaโ€™s limited overs captain Rohit Sharma, who is currently undergoing a rehab programme at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, had a session with the Asia Cup-bound U-19 players.

During the session, Rohit advised the youngsters on how to handle pressure and focus on their game. Under Yash Dhull, the Indian team will feature in the U-19 Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates later this month and the players were excited to pick Rohitโ€™s brains ahead of the important tournament.

The colts are to feature in the U-19 World Cup next year and these tournaments will prepare them better for the mega event. Rohit, who was part of the India U-19 squad, which played the final of the 2006 U-19 World Cup against Pakistan, also shared a few experiences with the youngsters.

Last week, the BCCI announced the squad for the U-19 Asia Cup and named a strong team for the event and the players have been attending a preparatory camp in Bengaluru over the last few days, under the watchful eyes of coaches Hrishikesh Kanitkar, Sitanshu Kotak and Sairaj Bahutule.

Rohit, who was promoted as Indiaโ€™s ODI captain last week, will miss out on the Test series against South Africa due to a hamstring injury. While Priyank Panchal replaced him, Rohit is leaving no stone unturned to be fit ahead of the ODI series, beginning in January next year.ย ย
