With India about their campaign in Asia Cup 2023, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma’s form could be crucial for the team’s success in the continental event and the 36-year-old has been an exceptional performer for the team in the ODI format of the game scoring three double hundreds in the 50-over game.
Rohit Sharma will be crucial for the team’s success in the continental event, as he is one of the most experienced players for India in the continental event and the veteran has ample amount of experience playing in Sri Lankan conditions over the last few years.
Recalling an incident of his double-century against Sri Lanka at Mohali in 2017, Rohit Sharma revealed the reason behind his wife being emotional after he scored a double-century on their wedding anniversary and said that he started the innings slowly before taking the bowlers to the cleaners in the death overs of the game.
“As you can see my wife got emotional there, this day was special as it was my anniversary. Probably the best gift I could give to her while I am on the field, it was quite emotional though.”
“At first I had no idea she cried. When I came from the ground, I just asked her why did you (Ritika) cry? So she told me that she thought I (Rohit) twisted my hand when I dived for my 196th run and that was a little worrying factor for her, She got a little emotional because of that I guess.”
“To be honest I was going pretty slow, I never thought I will get to a double hundred but once you cross 125, I feel it gets easier for you because bowlers are under pressure. Unless you make a mistake I don’t think you can get out,” Rohit Sharma said to BCCI.tv.
Rohit Sharma scored 208 with 13 fours and 12 sixes against Sri Lanka which helped the Indian side post a massive total of 392-4 at the end of the 50 overs and the Indian skipper will be looking to put up a show for the Indian team in the Asia Cup 2023.
The Indian skipper’s form will be crucial for the Indian team’s success in the Asia Cup 2023 and ODI World Cup 2023, as the team will require him to be at his best opening the batting for the team going into the mega-events.
