It is said that daughters are a symbol of love, prosperity, and happiness. Whenever a newly-born daughter graces your life, she brings with her a plethora of good luck and happiness in ones’ life. In the case of Rohit Sharma, the arrival of his daughter Samaira brought the swashbuckling opener lots and lots of runs and a heap of world records.
Rohit Sharma and Ritika Sajdeh were blessed with a baby girl when the opener was involved in the Boxing Day Test between India and Australia on December 30th, 2018. Sharma wasn’t around when his baby girl Samaira took her first breath, but one year on, on the occasion of her first birthday, the stylish opener is making a point to make it a memorable moment.
The Indian white-ball vice-captain, Rohit Sharma, took to his social media accounts where he shared photos of Samaira with the entire family. Sharma posted the photos wishing his baby girl with a heartfelt caption where he cheekily nicknamed her as ‘Cookie Monster’.
Sharma wrote, “Happy happy birthday to my little Cookie Monster. Your arrival has brought nothing but excitement, laughter, and bliss to our lives. Here’s to more midnight dancing, rapping and showing you the world,” wrote Rohit on Instagram and Twitter.
The baby girl brought a lot of runs for her father Rohit Sharma
The past twelve months of Rohit Sharma’s life have been like a dream in a paradise. The right-hander was at his swashbuckling best throughout the calendar year where he not only churned out runs but also broke a whole host of records for fun.
Rohit had a monumental World Cup in England where he became the first-ever batsman to score five hundreds in a single event, breaking Sachin Tendulkar’s previously held record. Apart from his ODI shenanigans where he finished as the world’s highest go-getter, pipping compatriot Virat Kohli, Sharma made some giant strides as far as resurrecting his stop-start Test career.
After missing out on the Tests series in the Caribbean, Sharma was entrusted with opening the batting in the home season against South Africa and then Bangladesh where he became the first Test opener to notch up hundreds in each innings of his debut Test at the coveted position.
Sterner tests await Rohit Sharma- The Test opener- in 2020, and the batsman will hope that Samaira’s good luck continues in the New Year.
