Indian captain Rohit Sharma stole the show with the bat as he played a blistering knock of 72-run against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 clash in Dubai. The ‘Hitman’ not only brought up his second 50 of the ongoing year 2022, but he also shattered records. Rohit also became the highest-scoring Indian player in the history of the Asia Cup.
Rohit Sharma looked in great touch as he reminded everyone of his incredible class with the stunning knock, that helped India recover from a poor start and put a total of 173 on the board. He played a stunning knock of 72 runs off 41 balls at the strike rate of 175, smashing four huge sixes and five boundaries. Three of those sixes came on the on-side and one of those struck a security person.
Yes, you read that right. Rohit Sharma unintentionally ended up hurting a security guard, who was stationed to keep a check on the crowd in Dubai Stadium. Rohit faced off against Asitha Fernando in the tenth over of India’s innings. And on the very first delivery itself, Rohit made his intentions very clear as he struck the ball with full force. That shot has class written all over it as the ball flew toward the deep square leg boundary. The security personnel was standing there and he was facing the crowd as the ball flew toward him and hit the guard on his back.
The video of the same has gone insanely viral on social media. Watch the video here:
