Fans are waiting for Indian skipper Rohit Sharma to get in form after continuous failure this year.
They expected him to score in the Nidahas Trophy against relatively weak sides of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. However, he disappointed in both the games. After a duck in the first match against Sri Lanka, Rohit scored just 17 in the second game facing the Bangladeshi bowlers.
Rohit's performance against Sri Lanka in the last bilateral series had kept fans on toes. He had scored a double hundred in ODI and a 35-ball ton in T20I.
Twitter, not missing the opportunity, pulled Rohit's leg. Sri Lankan government has banned social media for few days after communal tension. That's blessing in disguise for the Indian skipper as he will stay away from all the negativity.
Taking a jibe at Rohit’s recent form, here are the tweets from cricket fans:
Rohit Sharma got out earlier to give newbies chance to establish. In the process, he may lose his batting slot to them. But then that is selfless cricket. Sacrifice made to nurture future generation of cricketers. #Legend— Keh Ke Peheno (@coolfunnytshirt) March 8, 2018

If Milan were a cricket player they'd be Rohit Sharma. Nice to rep & talk about for nostalgia but isn't relevent in the modern scene— Cheema (@CheemaLFC) March 8, 2018
Before Rohit Sharma gets back in form, IPL will start. #INDvBAN— Silly Point ???? (@FarziCricketer) March 8, 2018
