New Delhi, Feb 21 India’s veteran opener Rohit Sharma has stated that India’s prime focus remains on winning the next two Tests against England in the home series that is currently level at 1-1. India cannot afford to lose either of the two remaining Tests in order to qualify for the World Test Championship final. "To be honest, when we are playing the game, the focus is not on the outside. We want to qualify for the WTC finals, but we still to do a lot of things right to be there. We will be very happy to qualify for the WTC finals, but there are little steps that we need to take before we reach the finals. It is too far ahead still, we have got two Tests to play before that, we will see what happens after that," Rohit Sharma said during a virtual press conference, on Sunday. "You just have to focus on the process, you do not need to think too far ahead. If you try to stay in present, I do not think you will feel any pressure. It is a five-day game, so the focus and pressure changes every day. It is important to be in the moment and think about what you need to do on the given day to get the best out of your skillset. When you do those little things right, it adds up and you achieve what you always wanted to achieve as a team," he added. The India and England teams are in Ahmedabad for the upcoming third Test, which will be a day-night fixture, starting on February 24. Both teams in Ahmedabad are enjoying the beautiful.
