India is poised to play the West Indies to begin their new World Test Championship (WTC) cycle after losing the World Test Championship final to Australia last month, their second WTC final loss after losing the 2019-21 cycle against New Zealand. However, the team's bowling section has had several injuries in recent years, resulting in important players missing the major event.

Rohit Sharma, like his predecessor Virat Kohli, has been questioned frequently over the team's inability to win major events since 2013. When the question was asked again on Tuesday, July 11, he responded quickly, emphasizing that he wanted all his players to be available.

We are going to keep fighting hard for it: Rohit Sharma

Rohit answered the nearly expected question about India's failure to win major tournaments during a news conference prior to the game. He stated, "Firstly, I want everyone to be available. All my players, I want them to be available 100 per cent. I don’t want any injury concerns. That’s first and foremost."

Asserting that India will keep trying hard, Rohit said, "I feel that as long as you keep ticking the boxes, keep playing good cricket, things will fall into place. Overall the years, we have done a lot of good things. It’s just that sometimes you want luck to be on your side as well. Over last five-six years, we have probably won everywhere, but yes, winning championships are important as well. Until we get that championship, we are going to keep fighting hard for it."

The captain went on to say that the guys they picked had enough experience to compete at the highest level. Rohit Sharma then underlined the composition of India's pace attack for the West Indies series, with Mohammed Siraj emerging as the cornerstone because of his substantial Test experience of 19 matches.

Along with Siraj, the squad also contains Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Navdeep Saini, and Mukesh Kumar, who was only recently called up after impressing with his domestic performance. India will definitely start their new WTC cycle in a positive way.
