Ace limited-over opener Rohit Sharma has been playing cricket continuously since he returned to Australia for the ODI series last month after seeing his newborn daughter. He also led the Men in Blue in a couple of ODIs and a three-match T20I series against New Zealand, equalling Virat Kohli as the second-most successful captain of India in the shortest format.
The 31-year-old is now back home after a gruelling tour of the trans-Tasman neighbours and spending quality time with his family, especially Samaira, his daughter who is yet to turn two months. Recently, a picture of Rohit playing with his baby daughter was shared on Twitter and now, another picture of the infant sleeping on his tummy has gone viral.
This time, the picture has been shared by the cricketer himself on his social media accounts and he gave an accompanying caption: “This is special, so good to be back”. The cute photo of the father-daughter duo received over 23k likes and a lot of positive reaction.

Rohit may be rested for Australia series
India’s next international assignment is on February 24 when they will take on Australia in the first of the two T20Is. The two-game series will be followed by a five-ODI series which will be India’s last major international engagement ahead of the ICC World Cup scheduled in May-July. The Indian squad for the series is yet to be announced and it is being believed that Rohit might be rested for this series to see him re-energise ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and WC. Rohit leads Mumbai Indians in the IPL.
A welcome break will allow the cricketer to spend some more time with his daughter and wife Ritika Sajdeh. Rohit will be playing in his second WC this time after playing the first in Australia and New Zealand four years ago. His century against Bangladesh in the quarter-final helped India win the game and make the semi-final where they lost to Australia, the eventual champions.
