Indian cricketers are currently in the West Indies for the white-ball series. While the Shikhar Dhawan-led team has already claimed the three-match ODI series and are gearing up for the final match on Wednesday, the T20I squad including Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant reached Trinidad on Tuesday. And the two have already started entertaining the fans even without walking on the field.
With plenty of time left for the first T20I, Rishabh Pant thought of interacting with the fans as he hosted an Insta Live. Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav also joined Pant in the Live session. The wicketkeeper batter also added leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal in the Live. The four interacted for a while but Rohit Sharma was not so convinced about it as he asked Pant to remove Chahal from Insta Live. “Yuzi ko delete maar na yar,” said Sharma.
Rohit goofs up with fans
While Rishabh Pant was in a mood to make his fans happy, Rohit Sharma was goofing around with all of them one after the other. In one instance, Sharma teased a fan and almost annoyed him. As soon as he joined the live session, Rohit Sharma started wishing good night and goodbye to him. The fan, meanwhile, was reluctant to go and insisted on staying in the session. Finally, Pant removed him.
In another instance, Sharma pulled the leg of a fan from Indore as he said “Black me mat kharidna ticket” when the fan said that he would come to watch the match between India and South Africa. Rohit then shared an idea and said that he will give him (the fan) Rishabh’s number so that he won’t have to pay extra for the tickets. The fan also had a perfect reply as he said “jis hisaab se Rishabh bhai logon ko add kr rhe hain live mein, list lambi ho jayegi”.
