Last Update on: February 14th, 2019 at 11:10 am

Almost everyone in this cricket-obsessed nation is desperate to spend his or her life like the cricketers’ do. However, very few realise that not everything is rosy for the cricketers too. The cricketers too need to make big sacrifices and one of them is giving up on family time. Cricketers nowadays rarely get time to spend time with their families and they try to make the most of their times whenever they get a break. Well, India star Rohit Sharma is also making sure to make the most of his current break.

The opening batsman was blessed with his first child a month ago. However, he could not spend much time with his newborn due to international commitments. He attended the birth of his child but flew back to Australia soon for the ODI series. After that, he went to New Zealand for five ODIs and three T20Is which ended on Sunday. Rohit is back in Mumbai now and he is making sure to get back to his role of a doting father.

On Wednesday, Rohit Sharma posted a picture with his daughter Samaira resting on his chest while the cricketer could be seen relaxing on a couch in his house.

“This is special, so good to be back,” wrote Rohit.

The upcoming few months, meanwhile, are going to be too hectic for Rohit Sharma and his Indian teammates. India will host Australia for two T20Is and five ODIs.

The series will begin with a T20I on February 24. After the two T20Is, the five-match ODI series between Australia and India will begin on March 2 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. The Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium (Jamtha) in Nagpur will host the second ODI on the 5th.

The third ODI will take place at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi on March 8. The Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali will host the penultimate ODI on the 10th. The series will conclude with the final ODI at the iconic Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi on the 13th. Ten days days later, the Indian Premier League will start. And within days of the conclusion of the IPL, the players will fly to England for the all-important ICC World Cup 2019.



An avid cricket lover, I just love this game more than anything. Writing about cricket keeps me closer to the game.
