Rohit Sharma gets out cheaply at Eden Gardens. Twitteratis feel he is worse than Maggi!

Rohit Sharma is being trolled for getting out early at the Eden Gardens

Even rain has not been able to put a lid on Rohit Sharma and Eden Gardens love affair, that is exactly what Twitter feels. After winning the first One-Day International at Chennai by 26 runs. It was a match that was affected by rain, but still, a result was possible after a few overs were docked. As Australia takes on Australia in the second ODI at Rohit Sharma’s favourite ground, there are possibilities of a shower but the match is underway after Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bat first. Rohit Sharma opened the batting for India with his new partner in Ajinkya Rahane.

In his last nine innings at the Eden Gardens, Rohit has scored 794 runs at an envious strike rate of 99.87, at an average of 113, across all formats. It’s also the ground where the opener scored that 173-ball 264 against Sri Lanka in 2014. It’s still the highest individual score in ODIs. These are phenomenal statistics.

He has scored 1325 runs in 24 innings against Australia at an average of 66.25 with the help of five hundreds. Compare this to his overall record of 5765 runs in 158 innings at an average of 43.34 with 13 tons.

But the second ODI was not a match he would like to remember, as he was dismissed early of the bowling of Nathan Coulter-Nile. Here is how Twitter reacted.

Rohit Sharma is a key element in this Indian setup and a lot is expected of him, but he was dismissed for a paltry 7 runs.
