Rohit Sharma, who is appointed as the stand-in captain in the absence of Virat Kohli, for the upcoming T20I series against Bangladesh was quizzed on questions related to the speculations of MS Dhoni’s retirement and Shakib Al Hasan’s ban at an event.
The former skipper’s retirement rumours has been a hot topic between Indian fans and media due to his long absence from the national duty. He took a break from cricket after returning from England and went onto serving Indian Paramilitary force for two months. Dhoni’s last international appearance came against New Zealand in the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2019.

On Thursday global sports brand Trusox unveiled Indian Hitman as their brand ambassador and during its press conference, Rohit was asked by a reporter for his reaction on the MS Dhoni‘s retirement rumours. Indian skipper gave a brilliant reply to it and said that he doesn’t know anything related to it. Moreover, he added that it was the media that comes out with such news.“We don’t hear anything about these things. You guys make these things up,” India’s stand-in T20I skipper told reporters.
A reporter also asked Indian opener about his take on the ban that was imposed by ICC on Shakib Al Hasan. In reply to it, Rohit hilariously said that he can’t say anything on that matter as he is not from ICC – ‘(Main Nahi Bol Sakta Kuch. Main ICC Thodi hun)’.
