Rohit Sharma heartfelt confession after the final

India captain Rohit Sharma who showed no mercy against the bowlers in the ODI World Cup, was emotional after their defeat against Australia in the Finals. 

First time after they lost the final, Rohit came forward and addressed his fans through a video in which he revealed that it was hard to move on from that loss. 

Rohit Sharma says, 

“It was not easy to digest, but life moves on. you have to move on in life. but honestly it was tough. it was not so easy to just move on. I have always grown up watching the 50 over world cup and to me that was the ultimate prize. We have worked all these years for that World Cup and it is disappointing, right? If you don't get through it and you don't get what you want, what you have been looking for all this while, what you were dreaming of, you get disappointed and you get frustrated as well at times.
I thought we did everything we could from our side. if someone will ask me what went wrong because we want 10 games and in that 10 game yes we made mistakes. but that mistake happens in every game that you play. you cannot have a perfect game, you can have a near perfect game. If I look on the other side of it, I am really proud of the team as well because how we played was simply outstanding. you don't get to perform like that every world cup and I am pretty sure I am at least how we play until that final it would have given people a lot of joy, a lot of pride watching the team play. 
After the final it was very hard to get back and start moving on, which is why I decided that I need to go somewhere and just get my mind out of this. but then wherever I was I realise that people were coming up to me and they were appreciating everyone's effort, how we played. I feel for all of them. They all dreamed of lifting that World Cup along with us.
Everywhere we went during this entire world cup campaign there was so much support from everyone, who came to the stadium firstly and people who were watching it from home as well. I want to appreciate what the people have done for us in that one and half month. but again if I think more and more about that I feel quite disappointed that we were not able to go through all the way.
For me to see you know people coming up to me telling me that day were proud of the team, you know made me feel really good to a certain extent. and along with them I was healing as well. I felt ok these are the kind of things you want to hear. 
When you meet people when the understand what the player must be going through and when they know these kind of things and not to bring out that frustration that anger it means a lot for us for me definitely it mean a lot because there were no anger it was there Pure Love from people that I met and it was wonderful to see that. so it gives you motivation to get back and start working again and look for another ultimate prize.”
