Incidents where Rohit Sharma lost cool on the field
1) Rohit Sharma getting angry at Mustafizur Rahman
This occurred way back in 2015. India were playing their first series since the 2015 World Cup and it was an ODI series against Bangladesh. In the first ODI between the two sides, Rohit Sharma lost his calm and got angry at Mustafizur Rahman.
The Bangladesh seamer made his debut in that match and had a collision with Rohit Sharma. The Indian opener seemingly wasn’t happy with it and warned Mustafizur not to do it again. A few words were exchanged as well. Turns out Rohit wasn’t the only one who collided with Mustafizur as even the then Indian skipper MS Dhoni had a nasty collision with Mustafizur.
Suresh Raina even spoke about it “It would have been disturbing had one of our batsmen got run-out because of that,” Raina told www.bcci.tv. “He collided with Rohit (Sharma) and then MS Dhoni. Anyone could have been seriously hurt.” Mustafizur went on to pick a fifer and Bangladesh went on to win that match as well as the ODI series.
