Asia Cup 2023: Rohit Sharma Says To Reporter 'Jeetenge Jeetenge' At Mumbai Airport, Video Goes Viral
Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian cricket team, was seen at the Mumbai airport with his wife Ritika Sajdeh, and his discussion with a paparazzi photographer is currently trending online.
In the video that has since gone viral, a reporter can be heard informing Rohit that he was waiting for the Asia Cup to begin. The response that Rohit gave to the reporter, which was simply "Jeetenge Jeetenge," has captured the hearts of many people on social media.
Shubman Gill, a rising star in India, believes that his opening partnership with Rohit Sharma, who will captain India in the 2023 ICC Men's Cricket World Cup in October and November, could be a turning point for the hosts in their bid to win the tournament.
The recently formed Indian combination has gotten off to a flying start in one-day international cricket, scoring a combined 685 runs in just nine at-bats together in various formats of the game thus far.
As India prepares for the forthcoming big tournament as well as for the Asia Cup, which will begin on the 30th of August, this statistic presents a positive outlook for the country's chances in both competitions.
"It feels great to be able to open up with him, especially knowing that all the focus is on him," she said. "It feels great to be able to open up with him." He enjoys it when the other batters allow him to go out and really express himself while still playing the game the way he wants to play it.
According to the information provided by the International Cricket Council (ICC), Gill stated that "in that nature, he gives the players full freedom for how they want to express their game."
Even though both Gill and Rohit bat right-handed in white-ball cricket, the style of play that they employ together turns out to be a powerful combination. The opening stand that the pair has put together has been greater than fifty in six of the eight opening stands that they have played together.
In addition, they have piled on 143 runs together against Sri Lanka in Guwahati and 212 runs together against New Zealand in Indore earlier this year. The fact that they utilise a variety of different strategies, skill sets, and approaches during their batting, as well as distinct scoring strengths, has proven to be extremely beneficial.
"I believe it's due to the fact that his (Rohit's) targeted areas are somewhat distinct from mine. In the Powerplay, his favourite move to perform is the aerial.
And I'm the type of person who enjoys filling in the blanks and establishing new limits, whereas he's the type of person who wants to knock in sixes. According to the ICC report, Gill was reported as adding "so I think that combination works well."
On September 2, the Rohit and Gill pairing will make their comeback to the pitch to take on the most difficult test of their careers: Pakistan's ferocious pace bowling assault in the Asia Cup.
