India captain Rohit Sharma will return to lead the side in the second ODI against Australia, in Visakhapatnam, after missing the first ODI, in Mumbai, due to family reasons.
Hardik Pandya led India at the Wankhede, where the hosts registered a 5-wicket win to take a 1-0 lead in the 3-ODI series.
Rohit Sharma hilariously proposed a fan at the Vizag airport
Upon landing at the Visakhapatnam International Airport, Rohit Sharma was given a rose by the officials as a warm welcome gesture. Then while leaving the airport, he saw a fan making a selfie video capturing most of the Indian team and staff.
Then as Rohit Sharma came near this fan, he handed out his rose that an airport official had given him to this fan who was “shocked,” as he said in his social media post. Rohit even hilariously asked the fan to marry him, handing him the rose!
“Ye lo, apke liye. (Take this, this for you) Will you marry me?,” Rohit Sharma said to this fan.
The video was shared on social media and it spread like wildfire with fans laughing their heart out at Rohit Sharma’s hilarious gesture.
“Shocking proposal from Rohit Sharma sir,” the fan captioned the video.
