India vs Australia: Rohit Sharma feels cricketers must make most of short shelf life

Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma feels cricketers have a short shelf life and they shouldn’t complain about burnouts.

Stating that he doesn’t believe in taking a break citing tight schedule as excuse, Rohit said: “Cricketers have limited careers, we cannot play till the (age of) 60, 70. We have to make the most of the time we have.

“There can’t be excuses of burnout, tight match schedule.”

He also said cricketers these days are used to tight schedules.

“We are all used to tight schedules. It is not happening now, it has been happening for a while now. We all understand how to take care of our bodies and there are specialists (physios/trainers) to help us out,” said Rohit, who is here for the first ODI of the India-Australia series to be held on 17 September.

“Because of the schedules, you see a lot of rotation happening. Whenever we play series we have to make sure that the guys are 100 per cent fit and the trainers take care of that.”

“I will be happy if I can come up with the same performances as last time. Things have changed, team dynamics have changed. The venues will be different. I have to start afresh and not think about what happened in the past. I will be happy to get the same performances out again,” he said.
