Rohit Sharma Is Getting Trolled For Scoring A Duck In 2nd ODI Against England
India captain Rohit Sharma bagged a 10-ball duck in the second ODI against England, at Lord’s, on Thursday as his inconsistent rut continues.

The bowlers had once again put up a clinical performance – though to not the extent as it was in the first ODI – by bowling England out for 246, with leg-spinner Yuvendra Chahal being the starman with 4 big wickets.
It was then up to the batters to take India over the line and take the series which they lead 1-0 after an emphatic win in the first ODI at The Oval.
Rohit Sharma, though, couldn’t carry on with the momentum that he’d displayed a couple of days ago when he smashed 76* runs off 58 balls in which he stroked 7 exquisite fours and 5 thumping sixes, all hooks and pulls.
Rohit Sharma fails to open his account at Lord’s
Today, the right-hander couldn’t even open his account. England left-arm pacer Reece Topley tied Rohit down with a maiden over first up and then had him lbw with a delivery that pitched on leg-and-middle and went across the right-hander.
Sharma played a straightish on-drive with a slight slant bat – a perfectly straight bat perhaps could have saved him – as the ball snuck between the pad-bat gap and hit him on his back leg pad.
The England players went up in an appeal in unison and the umpire had no doubts in raising his finger. Sharma went quickly for the review, however to no avail as proved on the DRS, the ball was going to hit and top of off-and-middle.

The perfect start!

This hasn’t been a great year for Sharma so far as a batsman – he has notched up only 2 fifties, and not a single century, in 17 innings so far in 2022; he had also gone 14 innings in the IPL 2022 without a fifty.
Sharma, unsurprisingly, got roasted on Twitter following his 10-ball duck at Lord’s.
Here are some of the trolls on Sharma:
