India captain Rohit Sharma did a hilarious mimicry of Virat Kohli’s aggressive celebration at the BCCI award function recently. Along with this, Rohit also imitated MS Dhoni’s helicopter shot, Shubman Gill’s bow-down celebration, and Jasprit Bumrah’s action.
Rohit Sharma is someone who is friendly with all his players and who always lives in the moment, enjoying his time on and off the field.
Recently, at the BCCI award function, he had a brief session with the host wherein the Indian skipper was asked to imitate some of his teammates.
First up, it was his own pull shot, which Rohit imitated with the same elegance and casualness as he does with the bat in hand. Then he was asked to mimic Jasprit Bumrah’s unorthodox bowling style, before playing Suryakumar Yadav’s famous Supla shot.
But the most hilarious of all was Rohit Sharma’s mimicry of Virat Kohli’s aggressive, ultra charged-up celebrations after his bowlers take a wicket. Kohli’s energy on the field is palpable and his aggression is world-famous. Sharma also imitated Sachin Tendulkar’s uppercut.
