Sharma said this at a news conference the day before the match on September 2 against Pakistan at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy, Sri Lanka.Sharma, who was 36 years old, had nothing but respect for his peers. He liked how much Green Shirts have grown and changed over time.
“Look, we don’t have Shaheen, Naseem, or Haris in the nets, we practice with our own bowlers.
“They [Pakistani trio] are all quality bowlers, there is no doubt about that. Pakistan have always had quality bowlers.
“We have seen where they ball, what lengths they use, we will just try to tackle them with our experience.”
The 36-year-old also talked about what kind of cricket he and the team will have to play if they are to beat the number one ODI team in the world.
“We need to use our experience, I’ll have to see what kind of cricket our team needs. In the last two years, I have played in a different way, more like risky cricket. But, I need to change my approach. As a top-order batter, I know how important it is for me to play a long inning and I need to bring balance to my game.
“We have short-term goals, as of now all we are focusing on is the game against Pakistan.”
