India captain Rohit Sharma has shared a special message for the fans, as the Men in Blue chase a record-eighth Asia Cup title. In a video shared by the official broadcaster Star Sports, the Hitman reminded fans about the importance of their support for the national team.

He feels that the tournament will be the perfect preparation for the T20 World Cup later this year. Here’s what Rohit Sharma said in the clip titled- “Mission Asia par Chhana Hai”:

“Winning the Asia Cup 7 times. Being the No.1 team. Creating new world records. But there’s no greater pride than hearing 140 crore of fans chanting- “India, India”. So come with this pride let’s take the world but before that let’s conquer Asia.”

Team India will begin their campaign with a high-voltage contest against arch-rivals Pakistan in Dubai on August 28. The Men in Blue will be looking to avenge their one-sided loss to Pakistan during the last edition of the T20 World Cup.

India will also play a qualifier in Group A. Meanwhile, Group B comprises Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
