Rohit Sharma rarely bowls. So it is a huge indication of India’s state in the Chennai Test that the opener rolled his arm over against England. Rohit Sharma was given the ball before Tea, as Virat Kohli wanted to give his main bowlers some rest.
And the opener made sure he entertained everyone during his short 2-over spell against England. Rohit Sharma started with a low full toss and got trolled by Rishabh Pant for not pitching the ball in the correct spot.
Both Sharma and Pant were seen engaging in constant banter, as India enjoyed a light moment in the field on a day where things didn’t quite work out.
But Sharma’s best moment came on the final ball before Tea. The batsman hilariously imitated Harbhajan Singh’s trademark action to bowl the final ball. Even Joe Root was amused by Rohit Sharma’s antics.
