“He might jump…”Sourav Ganguly drops a bombshell on Rohit Sharma

The Indian cricket team is set to compete in another World Cup final within eight months, as they face South Africa in Barbados for the top match of the current T20 major tournament this Saturday. India was defeated by Australia in the final of the 2023 Cricket World Cup on November 19, even though they had entered the final without a loss. Now, the team has another opportunity to break their long streak without an ICC championship win when they play against South Africa in the 2024 T20 World Cup final.

Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly humorously commented that Rohit might jump into the ocean in Barbados if India loses this upcoming final too.

The Indian cricket team is set to compete in another World Cup final within eight months, this time against South Africa in Barbados during the T20 World Cup final on Saturday. India previously lost to Australia in the 2023 Cricket World Cup final last November, even though they entered the match without a single loss. Now, they have another opportunity to win their first International Cricket Council (ICC) title in a long time by facing South Africa in the 2024 T20 World Cup final.

Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly humorously mentioned that Rohit Sharma might jump into the ocean in Barbados if India loses this upcoming final too.

Ganguly said, “Rohit has led the team into two World Cup finals without a loss. This shows his quality as a captain and leader, and I’m not surprised. He took over as captain when I was the BCCI president and when Virat Kohli decided not to captain India anymore,” as reported by PTI.

“It took a long time to appoint him as captain because he wasn’t ready at first. We all had to encourage him a lot to take on the role, and I’m really pleased with how Indian cricket has improved under his leadership,” Ganguly mentioned. He also noted that winning IPL titles can be even more difficult due to the length of the tournament.

“Rohit holds the impressive record of winning five IPL titles, which is a significant accomplishment. Winning an IPL title can sometimes be more challenging. I want to clarify, I’m not suggesting that the IPL is superior to international cricket.”

“To win the Indian Premier League (IPL), you need to win about 12 to 13 matches out of 16 to 17. But for the World Cup, you only need to win 8 to 9 matches. Winning the World Cup feels more special, and I hope Rohit Sharma can do it tomorrow.

I don’t believe he could lose two World Cup finals within seven months. If he did, he might even jump into the ocean in Barbados. He’s been a great leader, playing really well, and I hope he keeps it up tomorrow. I hope India wins and plays without any worries.”

“They’ve been the strongest team in the competition. I hope they do well and win. I also hope they get some good luck tomorrow, because that’s often needed to win major tournaments,” Ganguly said.
