Cricket is like religion in India and Indian fans worship their favourite cricketers like Gods. This has been observed on several occasions before, especially in the case of Sachin Tendulkar but it has been relevant even after his retirement, in the case of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli and now Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma has always been one of the best Indian batsmen of the current era as he has always been underrated. But not anymore. With the Hitman being appointed as Team India’s new T20I captain, Rohit is getting the credit that he deserves and the fans are showering their love for the opener.
This is exactly what could be seen during today’s match between India and New Zealand when a fan entered inside the field and ran towards Rohit Sharma to touch his feet. He slept in front of the player, gesturing to touch his feet.
The pics and videos of the same went viral in no time and Twiterratti started sharing their love for Rohit Sharma and the fan who fulfilled his dream.
Rohit Sharma’s tenure as the Indian captain has been very fruitful so far. India had lost 7 consecutive matches against New Zealand before the ongoing series and now after the appointment of Rohit Sharma as India’s new captain and Rahul Dravid as India’s new head coach, things have changed for the Blues. They now won 2 consecutive matches against the Blackcaps and have thus sealed the t20 series convincingly.
