Indian opener Rohit Sharma has sent out a very strong message loud and clear. Rohit posted a throwback on twitter, where he can be seen posing with a Rhinoceros. The explosive limited overs batsman supports anti-poaching and requested all to stop killing animals. Aware of the threat to wildlife, Rohit Sharma joined an anti-poaching campaign along with Hollywood actors Matt Le Blanc and Salma Hayek, in the year 2015.
The picture was clicked during the same visit. He also mentioned “last male Northern White Rhinoceros” alive. His caption read ”Left a bit of my heart with this beauty, #Sudan, 2 years ago in Kenya – the last male Northern White Rhinoceros living today #StopPoaching.”
The Indian cricketer often posts pictures with dogs. Regarding his experience, Rohit had said ”I thought it is my duty to join the anti-poaching drive. I was fascinated to have a look at Sudan (Northern White Rhino) and the sniffer dogs, who catch hold of the poachers.”
Integral part of the team
Rohit is a very important part of the limited-overs side for India. He is the vice-captain of India and has proved his mettle at the top order. The upcoming home series against Australia is an important assignment and Sharma’s performance at the top will be a key to India’s success.
“I would be happy if I could repeat the performances from last time,” Rohit said on Thursday on the sidelines of an Adidas event. He, though, didn’t forget to mention that this is a different Australia side than 2013. “Australia are a different side with a different team dynamics. Our team dynamics have changed. Every time you play a new series, you come with a new mind set and try to repeat the same performances. I have to think fresh and not dwell on what happened in the past. That is what I will try and do,” Rohit said.
