IPL 2022: Rohit Sharma Is Getting Mercilessly Trolled On Twitter

Rohit Sharma Is Getting Mercilessly Trolled On Twitter: Rohit Sharma’s forgettable IPL 2022 season came to an end with an even utterly forgettable inning: 2 runs from 13 balls, against the Delhi Capitals.

As a top-order batsman, an established world-class opener, the captain of both his franchise and his national side – it was indeed a horrific and disappointing season for a seasoned campaigner: in 14 matches, Rohit managed 268 runs at an average of 19.16 while striking at a lowly 120 with a best of 48; this also meant that for the first time in his IPL career, dating back to the inaugural season in 2008, Rohit couldn’t hit a single fifty!

Against the Capitals, he just barely got bat on ball as the swing and seam movement by the DC pacers made him seem like a rabbit in the headlights.

He faced two deliveries in the first over, from Khaleel Ahmed – on the first he blocked solidly but on the second missed his big booming drive, the ball missing the edge by a thin margin.

Then came the over that will make Rohit think the next time he’s pondering for a left-arm pacer for the Indian team. Out of 6 legal balls, he faced from Khaleel in the third over of the innings, Rohit could only place his bat on just one! He missed 5 deliveries as Khaleel put on an exhibition of outswing and inswing with some assistance from the pitch as well to make life difficult for the MI skipper. However, the bowler didn’t have the wicket to show as Rohit missed 5 of his shots but also didn’t nick any.

Sharma got off the mark, on his 10th ball. He was 2* off 12 balls when he chipped a full ball from Anrich Nortje straight to Thakur at mid-on to end his disastrous knock. Sharma looked at the bottom of his bat – but he’d know better than anyone that the issue was not with his bat.

Netizens vented out their disappointment, frustrations – rage from the RCB fans too – as Rohit Sharma concluded his unremarkable season; he was trolled and mocked mercilessly on Twitter.

Here are some of the best memes and troll tweets on Rohit Sharma:
