Indian opener Rohit Sharma, who scored a fantastic 149 runs against his Pakistan rivals at the ICC World Cup against rivals Pakistan in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019 is making headlines for his cheeky reply to a Pakistani journalist at a post-game press conference. Sharma, who has already hit two centuries in the three matches India played was asked by a journalist to give advice to Pakistani batsmen to come out of the situation of 'crisis'.
