Rohit Sharma Shuts Reporter With Epic Reply On 2019 WC Final Query; Babar Gives Buttler Translation - Watch
On Tuesday, October 4, during the captain's day roundtable programme for the 2023 World Cup, Rohit Sharma responded to a journalist with an incredible response regarding the iconic 2019 World Cup final between New Zealand and England. When the reporter asked Rohit if the two teams ought to have received joint awards, he responded.
For those who don't know, England and New Zealand played a superover to settle the tie in the tournament's final summit battle at Lord's.
Following a score tie in the tie-breaker, the Eoin Morgan-led team was declared the victors based on a questionable boundary count rule that has since been removed.
The question clearly confused Rohit, and he appeared irritated that it was directed at him. A storm of laughter broke out in the room when Rohit said, "Winner Ghoshit Karna Mera Kaam Nahi Hai (It is not my job to declare the winner)." The Indian captain responded.
Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, was seen translating the question to Jos Buttler and explaining to him how Rohit responded, because the exchange took place in England.
