Port of Spain:

The middle-order mainstay of a second-string Indian cricket team, Rohit Sharma says he has a career to make and a reputation to defend in the ongoing ODI series against the West Indies here.

"I have always said missing out on the World Cup was a personal disappointment. But I have to move on and establish myself in the present series, as well as to ensure that India's world cup reputation is kept intact," Rohit, who starred with a 75-ball 68 in India's four-wicket win over the West Indies in the first ODI yesterday, said.

The 24-year-old has seen many ups and downs in a one-day career spanning 61 matches and spread over four years but he is striving to be more consistent now.
