How Rohit helped his fan from Sri Lanka
During Sri Lanka’s recent tour of India, Nilam had to rush back to Sri Lanka as his father was detected with throat cancer. Sudhir ensured Rohit got in touch with Nilam who paid for his flight tickets to ensure he was back home with his father.
Rohit had also promised a visit to Nilam’s home in Colombo. He went on to fulfil it during the Nidahas Trophy last month which India went on to win. The final match is famously known for Dinesh Karthik’s last ball six to win the Tri Series.
“I know him (Nilam) for many years now. He has cheered for me for so long now. I still remember he was crying a day after the Test in India, telling me how his father was not feeling well.” Rohit had earlier told.
Mumbai Indians’ patchiness in the IPL
Mumbai Indians haven’t begun well this year. They’ve always had the reputation of being slow starters but if they don’t step up soon, it might soon be too late for them. Right from Rohit’s inconsistency to lower order’s form, the list has been never-ending. Moreover, every game they’ve lost, the result could’ve gone either way. It’s high time they start seizing the moment before it’s too late.
