Indian cricket fans missed captain Kohli a lot during the first ODI that Team India played against Sri Lanka. Virat was away in Italy tying the knot with his longtime girlfriend Anushka Sharma. Virat’s absence was visible during the first match when the players failed to manage the game and lost it drastically. In Kohli’s absence, Rohit Sharma was given the responsibility to lead the team during the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka.
Though India failed to win the first match, the acting captain didn’t leave a single stone unturned during the last two matches. Team India won the series by 2-1 against the Sri Lanka cricketers. But it’s the second ODI match that the cricket fans and Rohit Sharma himself will remember forever and ever.
Rohit displayed some wonderful cricketing skills on the field and knocked 13 fours and 12 sixes scoring 208 off 153 balls. It was a moment to cherish and remember. The same day was Rohit’s wedding anniversary and this was the perfect gift he could give to his wife.

It was unarguably the most memorable knock of Rohit’s career and his heart-winning gesture towards his wife Ritika Sajdeh, who was already in tears left his fans in awe. Everyone who saw the viral video lauded his gesture and praised him.

While people felt the love in the air with Rohit’s sweet gesture towards his wife, his ex-girlfriend, Sofia Hayat didn’t stay behind from spitting venom. She is the only one who doesn’t seem impressed. Talking about his double century, she said:
“I am happy that Rohit is gaining success. But wondering how people are discriminating things on gender. Rohit should understand it is just a ‘bat-ball’ game. Just that he is a man, so people are clapping”.
Calling the situation gender biased, She said:

“No one went this crazy when Kanchanmala (Pande) won the Olympics with her disability. That was something more encouraging and should have been more praised as per my opinion. I would be celebrating something better or social cause, not on this for sure.”
Commenting on his gesture towards his wife, Sofia added:
“He (Rohit) has this old habit to credit his partner. When I was in his life, I used to be credited but I use to cry only when he played bad. I’m happy that Rohit has finally found someone who is trying to make him move on from me”.
This is not the first time Sofia has said something against to the hitman of Indian cricket team. Earlier, she announced her breakup with Rohit on Twitter.
