Things did not go down well for Rohit Sharma in the recently-concluded Test series against West Indies. While everyone was expecting him to be a part of the playing eleven, Rohit Sharma had to warm the bench in both the games. It was definitely a setback for Rohit who has been in superb touch in recent times.
In the summer’s World Cup, Rohit had scored a record five centuries. In the practice game just before this Test series, he had also scored a fifty to strengthen his case. Even in his last Test appearance which came in Melbourne last year, he had scored a fifty. However, all of those knocks made little difference as Rohit had to sit in the dressing room while the team preferred Hanuma Vihari.
But despite the setback, Rohit was very cheerful at the end of the second Test in Jamaica and made the day of two of his Caribbean fans. Following the conclusion of the game, Rohit Sharma saw two local fans wearing Team India’s jersey with his name written on the back. An eagle-eyed Rohit quickly asked both the fans to come out of the stands and then bonded with them. The fans made the most of the opportunity as they showed their groovy dance steps to their favourite cricketer.
Here is that beautiful clip of Rohit Sharma and his fans:

India, meanwhile, made light work of West Indies once again to sweep the two-match series. The visitors thrashed the beleaguered hosts by 257 runs in the second Test. Chasing an improbable 468, West Indies never really looked in contention and were eventually all out for 210. India will now host South Africa for three T20Is and as many Tests later this month.
