Every game is important in a World Cup: Rohit Sharma

Ahead of the India-Pakistan clash, Indian captain Rohit Sharma spoke about playing their arch-rivals in a high-intensity contest like the World Cup. Speaking at the toss, Sharma said, " Would've bowled first too. We need to assess how conditions play and come up with an idea of what a good score is. Those games have helped us assess conditions here."

"We've spoken about what we need to do as a batting unit to get a good score and then we've got the bowling unit to defend. Every game is important in a World Cup, you can't just show up. Anything can happen. We're sticking to the same XI."
