Since their shock group-stage exit in the last T20 World Cup, India have been experimenting with their squad, with injuries and workload management also playing a role.
“We play a lot of cricket, so there will be injuries and workload, so we have to rotate players.” Rohit said on Star Sports show ‘Follow the Blues’.
“But it gives us strength to go on the bench and play the game, so we can try more guys who are ready to go and perform on that international stage,” she added.
“We want to build our bench strength, we want to ensure that India’s future is in safe hands. This is the plan we are trying to make.”

Rohit is now gearing up to lead India in the upcoming edition of the T20 showpiece in Australia, but before that they have the Asia Cup to tackle.
He said the aim should be to get better as a team every day.
“I don’t know what to expect after that but for me especially, it’s about getting better every day as a team,” Rohit said.
“Whether you win or lose the series, it cannot take precedence. If we get better as a team that should be a priority.
“The team’s goal is important and then obviously the parts of it are where the individuals come into play and play a role in the team’s success. But whatever the team is trying to do, individuals have to buy into that thought process and work towards it.”

When Rohit replaced Virat Kohli as India’s all-format captain, India also had a new coach at the end of last year’s T20 World Cup, with Ravi Shastri making way for Rahul Dravid, who was the captain when Rohit made his ODI debut.
Rohit spoke about their conversations since taking charge of the Indian cricket team.
“When he became the coach here, we met and sat together for a while and decided how we wanted to take this team forward.” said Rohit.
“He was on the same thought process as me. It made it easier for me to give a clear message to the boys because the coach and the captain should always be on the same page for the team to move in the same direction.
“One thing we have decided and have in common is we want to send the right message and we don’t want to create any confusion in the group.
“We talked about it and of course we wanted to change the style of cricket. We wanted to play a certain way in all three formats and he was ready to accept it. said Rohit.
