India's protagonist Rohit Sharma said it was important for Shikhar Dhawan to return to form ahead of Australia's crucial tour, which would be a completely different ball game.
Dhawan, who fought the entire previous ODI against the West Indies, returned to form with a scattered 92 of 62 balls to help India beat visitors with six wickets in the final T20 and complete a 3-0 series sweep.
Dhawan and the young Rishabh Pant (53 of 25) pulled 130 runs of 80 balls for the third wicket on Sunday to lay the foundations for victory after India were able to deal with 45 for 2 while chasing 182.
"It was important from the side of the team and for the players to take some tours in front of the major Australian tournament." Shikhar especially fired well in the ODI series but did not get great results. winning victory and getting some form under his belt before the crucial tour, "said Rohit.
"Rishabh was also hungry to get out and get some run. It was the perfect situation. We had two under the first six oververs. One piece of pressure too. They handled well and it was a victory over co-operation." It's important , on the part of the team, that both of them did run, "he said.
The India tour to Australia begins with the T20 series of three races in Brisbane on November 21st.
Rohit said the upcoming Australian tour would be a totally different ball game, and India should be confident of winning 3-0.
"It's always hard when you're going out there and playing, every time you go there, you are tested as a player, as a person and as a group." Australia will be a different ball game, "he said.
"When you win a series like this, you are high in confidence and that's just to get that confidence there, we have to keep repeating the performances, it's an endless story," Rohit added.
He said the team had scored enough boxes during the just completed series and the fielding was one of them.
"We have scored a lot of boxes, especially I am happy to be in the process, I think we have been very well in the tournament, with bangs and bowling there will be mistakes and there will be some good performances," said Rohit. Rohit has also been selected in India's testing team to face Australia, but said he does not think so far.
"I think there is still time before this. We have the T20Is and practice games before the first test match. I do not think of the Test Match. I am someone who does not think too much ahead." Going back, taking a few days away, take it fly to Australia and prepare for the T20 series, "said Rohit.
"We will have enough time to think about the test matches after that. If I try to stay in the present, it works for me. Testing games is something I'm looking forward to for a long time and it would be nice to go out there and play a test race for India. "Rohit, who led India to victory in the Asian cup before the T20 victory in the West Indies, said the secret of his success was to keep things simple.
"Every game is a new game: every time I go there in the middle, I keep things simple, this game is simple and you have to keep it simple," he said. Rohit praised the newcomer Krunal Pandya and said that India would benefit a lot from the fearless cricketers like him.
"Krunal is a clever cartoonist who is never afraid to do anything in the fight and has impressed me with his approach to these three games and has great ability to play for India for a long time.
"He is fearless as his brother (Hardik). At the end of the day we need characters in the group. You'll need players like Hardik, Krunal who are not afraid to express themselves," he said.
Asked about the absence of the legendary Mahendra Singh Dhoni behind the logs during the T20 series, Rohit said: "MS (Dhoni) was not part of the Trophy Nidahas in Sri Lanka as well.
"The MS that is not in any team is a great loser." "The presence in the team itself is a huge push for many players, not just me, especially the younger players."
