"I'm not yet relieved… I still have a lot more to do. When I was young and wanted to play international cricket, I never thought this would happen," said Rohit when asked about his breathtaking innings in the post-match presser yesterday.
"The records happen along the way. I probably need to work harder, as from here on, the expectation will be more. I feel I have a lot of responsibility on my shoulders," said Rohit.
Rohit, who played his first international match yesterday after an injury lay-off, had struggled against pace bowling in South Africa, but felt that a couple of failures can't stop his progress.
"You have to accept the failure and success and keep moving on. That's what I've done. A couple of overseas failures will not stop my cricket.
"My cricket and my hard work will still remain on track. I'll keep working as hard as ever," said Rohit, , who started his record-breaking innings slowly as he conceded a maiden to Angelo Mathews before stepping on the gas.
