India’s swashbuckling batsman Rohit Sharma is one of the most destructive batsmen in world cricket. In the last 6 years or so, Rohit Sharma has worked very hard on his game and established himself as one of the most feared batsmen in limited-overs cricket.
These days, with the coronavirus pandemic spreading like wildfire around the world, the sporting world has come to a halt and Rohit Sharma is utilizing this time in spreading awareness about the coronavirus and also engaging with his fans through social media.
Rohit Sharma has been conversing with fellow cricketers during his self-isolation period. Recently, Rohit did an Instagram live with former English captain Kevin Pietersen. And, in his latest appearance, he invited India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah to interact with him. It was a fun interaction for the fans as they got to know about the personal side of Jasprit Bumrah.
During the chat, Bumrah told Rohit that Pant wants to challenge him to see who can hit the biggest six between the two. Rohit, who is arguably the best six-hitter in world cricket, replied in his typical ‘Mumbaiya’ style and said that Pant has only period cricket for one year and he wants to have a ‘biggest six’ competition.
“Mere sath usko karna hai? ek saal hua nahi usko cricket khelke, chhakke ka competition kar rha hai (He wants to compete against me? He has played cricket for hardly a year and wants to have a competition).”
It was a brilliant reply from Rohit Sharma because Rishabh Pant is just one year old in international cricket and Rohit is the best six-hitter in the world. He holds the record for scoring hitting 3 double hundreds in ODI cricket and his highest individual score in ODI cricket is 264. He is the HITMAN of cricket.
