“I want to wish our women’s team all the very best for the finals. I’ve really, really enjoyed how you’ll have played in the last four weeks. It’s the final, and you don’t get to play a final every day. So, it’s important to enjoy and have fun at the same time. Enjoy the atmosphere, it’s going to be amazing. We all will be cheering for you. So go out there and give it your best,” said Rohit.
