Indian batsman Rohit Sharma is back in the Test circuit after more than a year’s time in the second match against Sri Lanka at the VCA Stadium, Nagpur. Rohit had a fun activity on the field where he was spotted playing with the spider cam, which is used to cover the game closely.
The incident happened after the 11th over when the camera came down and closer to the players while fielding against the Lankans. Rohit Sharma, who was fielding in the square leg region, rushed towards the camera and started playing with it.
