Rohit Sharma signals the crowd to chant ‘India India’: The Indian vice-captain’s act will increase your respect for him.
Unlike other countries or other sports, the fans of Indian cricket are not known for their chants during a live match. Having said that, the cricket-crazy fans of the country often make it a point to chant their beloved player’s name repeatedly.
That privilege has moved from vastly-admired players like Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Of late, Virat Kohli has also started to enter this eminent list where crowd are seen chanting ‘Kohli Kohli’ whenever he gets going, which he mostly does.
In who has become a fresh entrant in this list is India’s vice-captain and opening batsman in the limited-overs format Rohit Sharma. The 31-year old right-hand batsman has become a different player altogether since he has started to open the innings for India.
As a result, what has followed him apart from massive success at the highest level is a plentiful of fans, who admire the effortless way he scores daddy hundreds.
Having scored a match-winning 21st ODI century in fourth ODI of the ongoing Windies’ tour of India at Mumbai, Sharma proved as to why he is one of the best opening batsmen in the world.
During the Windies’ innings, when Sharma was fielding at the boundary, a section of crowd was seen cheering for Sharma. Just when chants of ‘Rohit Rohit’ were doing the rounds at the CCI, Sharma turned back and signaled his fans to chant ‘India India’ than his name.
Listening to what the ‘Hitman’ had said, fans started chanting the name of the country. In a viral video on social media, Rohit is seen signaling this to his fans.
The act speaks highly about Sharma for seldom do you see an individual not wanting the crowd to cheer him. In the modern contemporary world of publicity and footage, doing such a deed commands sheer respect for Sharma.
