Even as the cricketers around the world are slowly returning on the field to practice and train, most of the Indian players are still confined to their home. The Coronavirus cases are at its peak in the last few days in the country and the BCCI is yet to chalk out any plan for its players to make a comeback on the field. This has led to the cricketers resorting to social media to interact with the fans and have some fun as well.
Rohit Sharma did the same on Sunday as he decided to answer some of the interesting questions from his fans on Instagram. Known for his witty responses, India’s limited-overs vice-captain was at his hilarious best responding to tricky questions. One of the fans asked him to pick any one batsman between Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar.
Both the cricketers don’t need any introduction. They opened innings for India in the ODIs for a long time and literally ripped apart the opposition bowling attack almost every time. Rohit Sharma also tried to be safe and didn’t pick one out of them stating, “Marwaoge kya.” (It translates to: Will you get me killed?)
Rohit Sharma picks Smith and Roy as batsmen he enjoys watching bat
The 33-year-old was then asked to name a cricketer whose batting he enjoys watching. And Rohit Sharma didn’t hesitate to name Australia’s Steve Smith and England’s Jason Roy. Both the batsmen have their own style of batting with Roy known for hitting the ball crisply. On the other hand, Smith’s weird batting style makes him unique and is certainly enjoyable to watch when he dishes out textbook shots.
Both Smith and Roy are tremendous match-winners on their day and have played crucial roles in their respective team’s numerous victories. Unsurprisingly, a question about Virat Kohli popped up from a fan and Rohit, this time, came up with another hilarious response. The fan had made a spelling mistake while typing the Indian captain’s name and the Mumbaikar let him know about it.
Here are his stories
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma is also missing being on the field and seems to be eager to make a comeback. He last played in January in the T20I series against New Zealand before being ruled out from the subsequent ODI and Test series due to injury. He was set to play in the IPL only for the pandemic to disrupt everything.
