Funny VIDEO: Camera Spots Rohit Sharma Before He Pulls Down His Trousers – Even though the India vs Pakistan match on Saturday in their Group A encounter got underway at the scheduled time at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy, the match was first interrupted only after 4.2 overs of India’s innings.
Rohit Sharma had won the toss and elected to bat first. Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill started the innings off very cautiously and carefully against the likes of Shaheen Afridi and Naseem Shah, both of whom moved the ball a bit in the air and off the pitch.
At the time of the first interruption of rain at 4.2 overs, India’s score was 15/0, out of which 11 runs came off the bat of Rohit Sharma in 16 balls and Shubman Gill had played 8 dot balls for zero runs while 5 runs were of extras.
The drizzle became heavy and the umpires asked the players to leave the field. After a brief while, when the rain relented and the umpires decided it was time to resume the game, the cameraman caught Rohit Sharma in an awkward position.
It seems like Rohit was about to pull down his trousers and adjust his abdomen guard before taking the field. He was near the boundary line so the cameraman panned on him directly. Rohit was unhappy with that and funnily asked the cameraman to stop recording for a while. After a few seconds of Rohit’s request, the cameraman obliged and moved away from the India captain.
This video of Rohit Sharma has gone viral and fans had a big laugh over it:
Rohit Sharma is asking camera man to stop filming him. 😂
