Rohit Sharma Is Getting Mercilessly Trolled For Throwing His Wicket Away Again

After two good knocks in the first couple of T20I vs England, India captain Rohit Sharma had a forgettable time in the third T20I with the bat, as he managed only 11 runs while taking up 12 balls. It was indeed negatively impacting on India’s total as they were chasing a mammoth target of 216.

While Rohit’s innings in the previous two matches – 24 off 14 and 31 off 20 – were not long, they had a positive impact because of the brisk nature (strike rate) of those. Today, though, he took 12 balls for scoring 11 runs in a big run chase.

In fact, Rohit was slow to get off the blocks today; unlike in the last two matches, where he showed his intent while attempting some risky, aggressive shots, today he was a bit more sedate. Perhaps it also had to with the fact that his opening partner, Rishabh Pant, got out on the first ball of the second over.

Rohit Sharma’s batting woes continues

By the end of the 4th over, India were 20/2, having lost Rishabh Pant and Virat Kohli, and Sharma was only 2 off 7 balls.

At that point, one could sense that both India and Rohit needed a move on; something had to give. And it did. Sharma sliced Reece Topley for a boundary over covers. He then swiped the bowler for another boundary, this time over fine leg with just one hand as his front hand came off the handle.

It had started to look a good knock until Topley stormed back with the dismissal of the Indian captain. A slower and shorter delivery from the left-arm seamer had Rohit pulling into his shot a bit early. That mistake was enough for Topley to get the wicket as with no power and timing on Rohit’s pull, the ball only flew as far as to the deep mid-wicket fielder, Phil Salt, who gobbled the catch easily to give India another blow.

Netizens were quick to pounce of Rohit Sharma’s failure as the big knock awaits – he didn’t hit a single fifty in the IPL 2022 as well.

Along with Kohli, Rohit’s batting and form is also concerning with the T20 World Cup not too far away.

Here are some of the tweeted trolling Rohit Sharma for his low score today:
