'If I pick one player, the other will…': Rohit Sharma avoids 'big controversy' on Pakistan, wife Ritika can't keep calm
When a reporter asked Rohit Sharma for his advise on helping Pakistani players at the 2019 ICC World Cup, Sharma responded with a hilarious stump.
After Team India's dramatic victory against their bitter enemies on the biggest platform of them all, Rohit's interesting comment on coaching the Pakistani team became the talk of the town.
The Indian captain, known as Hitman, frequently ends up shattering the internet by making memorable remarks during media appearances.
In the most recent instance of Rohit being his clever self at a media appearance, the Indian skipper gave a humorous remark while discussing India's explosive match against Pakistan. In the 2019 Asia Cup, archrivals India and Pakistan will square off before the two cricketing superpowers resume their rivalry in the 2023 World Cup.
Before the major competitions, Rohit was asked to select the toughest bowler on Babar Azam's Pakistan team while speaking to media at an event in the United States.
Rohit avoids 'big controversy'
Many had anticipated Rohit to select either superstar Shaheen Shah Afridi or speedy Haris Rauf, but the Indian captain responded cheekily in the run-up to the highly anticipated Indo-Pak match. The Pakistani squad is doing well. The name Mai Kisi is not long.
Bada bada controversy hota hai (All Pakistan's quick bowlers are excellent. I'm not picking anyone, I promise.
It sparks a significant dispute). The second player will feel awful if I take their name. The third player will feel awful if I take the second player's name. I believe they are all excellent)," the Indian captain said to reporters.
Ritika Sajdeh, the wife of Rohit, was also present at the incident, and she finds it difficult to control her laughter. The astounding response from Rohit was captured on camera, and the video quickly went viral on social media among game enthusiasts.
At the 2022 World Cup, the Virat Kohli-led Team India triumphed over Pakistan in a nail-biting final ball contest under Rohit's direction.
