Sri Lanka defeated defending champions India by six wickets with a ball to spare in the Super Four match on Tuesday in the Continental T20 tournament being held in the United Arab Emirates.
Rohit’s team also lost to arch-rivals Pakistan in their first Super Four match, and India’s hopes in Sunday’s final depend on other results going in their favour.
Since winning the 50-over World Cup at home in 2011 and the ICC Champions Trophy two years later, India have failed to win a global competition.
“In tournaments like Asia Cup and World Cup where there are many opponents, there is more pressure,” Rohit Sharma told reporters. “In a bilateral series you play against the same opposition for three-five matches so you can plan better.
“Our job is to guide the players in making better decisions in situations of pressure.”
Just a month before the T20 World Cup in Australia, Rohit said that there will be very few changes in the team.
“The team is 90-95% settled. There will be some changes, that’s about it,” he said.
“There are a lot of questions that we have to answer and in the last three or four series that we have played, we have got some answers. There will be a time when we will draw the line and we will say that this is the combination we are going to play. ”
Rohit said that the defeat in the Asia Cup has not dampened the enthusiasm of the team.
“All the players are calm and calm,” said Rohit, who bats at the top of the order.
“We want to maintain an atmosphere in the dressing room that doesn’t change based on win or loss. Nothing is missing, there is quality in the team.
“We have played and won so many matches.”
