India captain Rohit Sharma opened up on the workload management, saying he has no issues with playing “all games” in bio-secure environments and will only take a break when he feels the need for it. Rohit’s appointment as Test captain prompted speculation on whether he can lead India in all formats, but on Wednesday, it appeared that he is up for it.

“At the moment, I have no issues and looking forward to playing all the games,” Rohit said ahead of India’s three-match T20 series against Sri Lanka.

“The workload always depends on what happens thereafter and you take day by day and understand what you do and if a break is needed, you take a break and someone else comes in.

“You see how the other guy can fill in, what sort of potential he has. At the moment, it seems to be okay,” the skipper said.

According to the skipper, he was happy that players got an opportunity to play the Ranji Trophy. Rohit also said that pacer Mohammed Siraj was available for selection.

“All I can tell them is keep scoring runs and the opportunity will arise as it has for (Hanuma) Vihari and Shreyas Iyer, Shubhman Gill and all those guys, who are part of the test team now,” Rohit said.

“A lot of these guys, I know, you got to keep scoring runs, you got yo to keep your head down and keep doing your job, that is what I can tell them at the moment and that is all we can expect them also to do.

“All these guys who have got an opportunity to play Ranji Trophy, I am very happy that they at least got to play the Ranji Trophy, which is the most critical from their perspective. I hope we see more and more performances in the next two games as well,” Rohit added.
