Rohit Sharma loses his trousers in an embarrassing moment

The former Mumbai Indians captain encountered a wardrobe malfunction while fielding in the deep. The incident unfolded during the 12th over, with Rohit Sharma positioned at deep mid-wicket as Akash Madhwal bowled to CSK's captain, Ruturaj Gaikwad. Gaikwad struck the ball towards deep mid-wicket, prompting Rohit to sprint to his right in an attempt to make a catch.

Despite Rohit Sharma's valiant effort, the ball eluded his grasp. In the process of diving for the catch, Rohit's trousers slipped off, leaving him momentarily exposed on the field. Undeterred, Rohit quickly rose to his feet with a grin, tossed the ball back to the infield, and discreetly adjusted his attire.
