The second T20I between India and Bangladesh was all about Rohit Sharma. India needed to win the game at any cost to keep the three-match series alive and the captain rose to the occasion. The right-handed batsman just blew away the visitors with his breathtaking batting as India cruised to a crushing 8-wicket victory.
Chasing a modest 154 on a good batting track in Rajkot, the hosts crossed the finishing line inside 16 overs. Rohit Sharma was firing on all cylinders, slamming 85 from just 43 balls. The India skipper belted six fours and six sixes to kill the chase inside 10 overs. Chasing the modest score on a belter of a track, Rohit Sharma came out all guns blazing.
In the third over, he hit two fours and a six off Mustafizur Rahman to get going. By the time the powerplay ended, India had raced away to 63 for no loss with Rohit scoring 46 off them from just 21 balls.
Rohit soon completed his fifty with a six from just 23 balls. He continued his batting in the same manner while his partner Shikhar Dhawan looked more than happy to play as a second fiddle. The two added 118 runs for the first wicket before departing in quick succession. While Dhawan departed for 31, Rohit departed for 85.
And after the game, Rohit Sharma had to make the customary appearance in Chahal TV for being the top performer in the game. Yuzvendra Chahal, who is the host of the show, lauded his skipper and the latter once again hit it out of the park with his hilarious comments.
“Itni power aati kaha se hai (where do you get all this power from?),” asked Chahal. In reply Rohit told the spinner: ” Tu bhi maar sakta hai, kyu nahi. (You can hit too, why not)”
The India opener then hilariously took a cheeky dig at Chahal’s thin biceps, saying: “Tere pass ache doley hai dikha zara (You’ve got good biceps. Show us)”. Chahal then duly obliged much to Rohit’s amusement. The leg-spinner then congratulated Rohit for becoming the first Indian male cricketer to play 100 T20Is before the latter once again trolled his younger teammate, saying:
“Mera hundred to thik hai, tum paanch wicket kab loge? (My hundred is fine, when will you take five wickets).
Here is a clip of that hilarious interview:
