Rohit Sharma’s fandom has reached new levels and rightly so. At second ODI against Sri Lanka in Mohali, he helped India register a strong comeback victory as the hosts thrashed the Lankans by 141 runs to tie the three-match series at 1-1. As a stand-in captain, he made a huge statement as he slammed his third ODI double-century, second against Sri Lanka.
From television to newspapers and social media to FM stations – all were going gaga about Sharma’s extraordinary innings. After the match, the cricketer was interviewed by Team India’s coach and presenter Ravi Shastri who went on to ask details of this crazily amazing match. Ravi Shastri turned a presenter for Rohit Sharma and asked some really interesting questions from him.
He not only commended Sharma for his form but also congratulated him by saying that he had outperformed himself this time.
Shastri went on to ask Rohit to choose his favorite out of the three double centuries he had scored in one-day internationals. Sharma replied to this smiling and said that all three 200s came at crucial points and it would not be easy for him to select one favorite.
Shastri also praised Sharma on his shot selection, to which he replied humbly that he had discussed the strategies with his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan and things worked out as planned.
The interview ended on a high note when coach Shastri gave his star player a new name. He said from now on you are “Rohit Paisa Vasool Sharma”! Here is the complete video of the interview.
