When Rohit Sharma plays limited-overs cricket, we expect carnage from him, and when the game is in his hometown you expect the three-time double century scorer to destroy the opponents.
India and West Indies cricket teams have come to Mumbai for the fourth ODI of the five-match series, and a day before the game, Rohit was seen hitting long hits. Not in practice session, but on the road of Mumbai.
Rohit spent time playing gully cricket with local people. He also shared a video where he can be seen smashing the ball for a six. "Gully cricket kind of Sunday," he wrote in his post.
Mumbai Indians later reposted the video on Twitter:
Imagine @ImRo45 gate-crashing your game of street cricket on a Sunday in Mumbai...????????— Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) October 28, 2018
Tag your gang and plan a game of #GullyCricket right away ????????#CricketMeriJaan pic.twitter.com/mQhwD8MgSu
The Mumbai batsman has been quiet in this series after an unbeaten 152-run innings in the first game at Guwahati. In the next two games, Sharma failed to keep the momentum going and fell early in the innings.
Despite the failure and inconsistency, he is the fourth highest scorer of the series with 164 runs. The top scorer is Virat Kohli (404) with three hundred in all three games.
West Indies have stood strong against India and showed good fight in the last two games. One of the main reason is high-quality batting performance by Shai Hope (250) and Shimron Hetmyer (237). They have been in good form which gave a good push to the Windies side.
