Indian white-ball vice-captain Rohit Sharma is often being trolled for his weight and portly figure. One can see trolls often body-shaming him now and then on social media, though Rohit doesn’t engage with them.
He was rested for the first two T20I matches against England despite Virat Kohli saying on the eve of the first match that KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma will be the first-choice openers for Team India. However, Shikhar Dhawan opened with KL Rahul in the first match, scoring 4 runs, and then Ishan Kishan debuted for India in the second match and lighted up the Motera stadium.
Rohit Sharma Spends Time Eating On The Sidelines, Gets Caught By The Camera
The Men in Blue could manage only 124 runs before England chased it down with ease to register an 8-wicket win in the first T20I. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma has been warming the benches despite the top order struggling with KL Rahul making a duck in the second T20I.
India managed to win the second match with emphatic fashion to make a comeback into the series and level it. And while the Indian team was busy hammering the England bowlers and then making the England batsmen look like chumps, Rohit Sharma was caught on the camera, eating in the dugout and was hiding behind a support staff member.
He was seen on camera chewing whatever he was eating from the plate that was hidden behind the support staff.

Virat Kohli And Ishan Kishan Leads India To A 7-Wicket Win
Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur picked two wickets each and justified captain Virat Kohli’s decision to field first after winning the toss. Though Jason Roy made 46 and there were contributions from Ben Stokes, Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, and Ben Stokes, but England could only manage 164/6 in 20 overs.
Sam Curran bowled an amazing first over for England, getting the wicket of KL Rahul, but it was not enough as Ishan Kishan, on debut and Virat Kohli added 94 runs for the second wicket in 9 overs to take the game away from the visitors. Kishan made 56 with 4 sixes and 5 fours, while Kohli remained unbeaten on 73 with 3 sixes and 5 fours. Rishabh Pant contributed 26 in just 13 balls, as India romped home by 6 wickets.
Virat Kohli also became the first batsman in T20I history to reach 3,000 runs in the format.
