New Delhi. When Indian cricket team captain Rohit Sharma returned home after winning the World Cup in Barbados, PM Modi was the first to welcome him in Delhi. On a question from the PM, Hutman said that honestly, I thought winning the World Cup was very easy. It is natural to have this question in mind that why would Rohit Sharma have said so. If we look at the performance of Team India in ICC tournaments in the last decade, this team has repeatedly missed the title after reaching the knockout stage.

In this T20 World Cup too, at the last moment it seemed that South Africa would snatch the victory from India. However, in the end Jaspreet Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya together brought Team India back into the match. PM Narendra Modi asked Rohit Sharma that you were a part of the team that won the 2007 T20 World Cup. You were the youngest player then and in 2024 you are the captain of the winning team. What do you think about this?

Rohit Sharma, while answering this question, said, 'To be honest, I came into the team for the first time in 2007 and we toured Ireland, where Rahul bhai was the captain. After this, we went straight to South Africa for the World Cup. We won the World Cup there. When we came to India after winning the World Cup, the whole of Mumbai was on the way. It took us 5 hours to reach Wankhede Stadium from the airport. After two-three days, I realized that winning the World Cup is quite easy, but after this the World Cups kept coming. Many times we came close but could not win. One thing I can say with confidence in this World Cup is that there was a lot of impatience and hunger among the people.
