New Delhi. Rohit Sharma, who has traveled from middle order batsman of Team India to opening and then captaincy, has shared his heart's feelings. The captain of the Indian team said that he has seen a lot in his 17 years of cricket journey. Bad times taught him how to emerge better. Rohit Sharma told that when his time was not going well, he started doubting himself and in such a situation no one came to help him.

Speaking to Dubai Eye 103.8, Rohit Sharma said, “Talking about my cricket journey, it has been 17 years since I started playing. No matter what sport you play, reaching an international team is not easy. Especially in the place and country where I come from, where so many people play cricket. From such a place, when you see your name among those 15 players, it is a very different feeling. First of all, consider yourself lucky, it is true that your hard work plays an important role in this but luck also plays a big role in this.

Seen a lot in my 17 years of journey
“There have been a lot of ups and downs in my cricket journey; In fact, it would be better to see more volatility. What I saw in my dark times has made me the person I am today. When you go through a very bad phase, after that you emerge as a completely different person. When I started my career, there were not many positive things to be seen. In fact, I had no positive impact on the team.

no one helped me
He further said, “There was a time when I started doubting myself. I started questioning myself whether I was made for this place or not. There was a time for me when no one came forward to help. Then I got time to figure out what I wanted to do as a person. What do I want from this life and what do I want from the sport I love so much? If I talk about my cricket journey, it has been amazing.”
