After a subdued start in the Asia Cup 2023, Rohit Sharma has stepped up the peddle and has made a blistering return to form. Since that ugly dismissal against Shaheen Afridi in the first match, the opener has registered three consecutive half-centuries and is peaking at the right time for Team India. Aside from winning hearts with his brilliant batting, the Indian captain has made an amazing gesture on the field that has left fans even more impressed with the Hitman.
Team India is on an emphatic run in the Asia Cup 2023. After registering an overwhelming victory of 228 runs against Pakistan, the Men in Blue came back the next and secured another convincing win. The successive triumphs have taken India to the final of the Asia Cup 2023, and it seems every decision of Rohit Sharma is falling into the right place.
Besides marshaling his troops, Rohit Sharma was recently seen directing some members of the crowd to continue waving the Indian tricolor. In the video, which has gone viral, Sharma instructs with the bat to the spectators and they comply with the captain. Here's the clip that is making rounds everywhere.
The instance took place after the culmination of the India vs. Pakistan game. In the game, Virat Kohli (122) and KL Rahul (106) scored a century apiece to take India's total to a massive mark of 356 runs. After batting, Team India victimized Pakistan with the ball as well. It was Kuldeep Yadav, who turned out to be the star of the show with a 5 wicket haul. The 228-run win goes down as India's biggest over Pakistan in ODIs.
After Pakistan, it was the turn of Sri Lanka to face the challenge of India. Unlike Pakistan, Sri Lanka displayed some forebearance, yet, remained short by 41 runs. Yadav again became the pick of the bowlers and time snared 4 wickets.
