‘Rohit Sharma and Diwali-A better love story than Twilight’-Rohit Sharma has some majestic scores in Pre-Diwali and Diwali dates

Those who have a strong familiarity with Rohit Sharma would be able to attest to the fact that the Indian skipper is not pleased when he hears the phrase “lazy elegance” frequently tossed at him during both official and casual interactions.

The term “lazy” hasn’t been in Rohit Sharma’s lexicon for as long as it’s possible to imagine, despite the fact that he is the epitome of sophistication. If he had even the tiniest bit of sloth in him, he would not have been able to score 33 of his 41 international hundreds in one-day and twenty-over matches combined; this feat just would not have been conceivable.

Forty-eight hours before the highlight match against Pakistan, it seemed like Rohit, the captain, at least for the day, made way for Rohit, the batter, who was thinking about how to counter the dangerous speed and swing of Shaheen Shah Afridi.

Perhaps he was trying to avoid hitting any horizontal bat shots, which is a recipe for disaster against someone like Shaheen, who will not only bowl quickly but also swing the ball late at a brisk pace.

Rohit Sharma is practising very hard in the nets

In most stadiums, it is only possible to see the nets from above, giving the impression that the players are practising in a large well. However, the nets at the Melbourne Cricket Ground provide spectators with a unique perspective of the action below.

On Friday, the Indian team participated in an optional net session, and when the captain entered the stadium, he became the focus of attention for the about thirty or so spectators who were there.

Together with Dinesh Karthik for company, Rohit toiled away at the task for close to one and a half hours. While Karthik, India’s chosen white-ball finisher, conducted some simulation training with some high-risk lap scoop and reverse lap scoop shots and pull shots following routine net practice, Rohit’s session was far more exciting.

For the time being, an interesting stat has cropped up. Rohit Sharma has had some significant scores on the Diwali and the Pre-Diwali dates. You can check the stat below. The Indian fans will be hoping that Rohit Sharma repeats this against Pakistan on Sunday at the MCG.
