India batsman Rohit Sharma and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal share a very good rapport. They often come up with amusing comments on each others’ social media posts. Such is their camaraderie that Rohit's wife Ritika Sajdeh often gets jealous about it.
During the Vijay Hazare Trophy quarter-final between Mumbai and Bihar in Bengaluru on Sunday, a fan entered the ground and tried to kiss Rohit Sharma. As the picture got viral on social media, Chahal and Ritika expressed their concern over it.
Firstly, Ritika posted an Instagram story by tagging Chahal which read: "@YUZI_CHAHAL23 YOU AND I BOTH HAVE COMPETITION".
To which Chahal replied: “Bhabhi yeah kya ho raha hai yeah kya ho raha hai @ritssajdeh”.
It is not the first time that Chahal and Ritika have indulged in social media banter. When Rohit was dropped from the Indian Test side for the first three Tests against England and had to head back home, Chahal had commented on his picture, “Miss you rohitaaaaaa sharaaammmaaa”.
Ritika then couldn't hold herself back from poking fun at the spinner and replied, “he’s mine now”.
Coming to the match, Mumbai is now into the semi-finals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy. They chased down the Bihar’s substandard target of 70 in 12.3 overs and won the game by 9 wickets. Rohit, who participated in the match to gear up for the ODI series against the West Indies, remained unbeaten on 33 with 3 boundaries and 2 sixes to his name.
