Rohit Sharma, the star Indian opener and the current stand-in skipper of team India, had a wonderful outing on December 13, at Mohali, against Sri Lanka. The Mumbai lad smashed the third double hundred of his ODI career, which is also the maximum by any cricketer on this planet. Moreover, he reached this feat on his 2nd wedding anniversary. His wife Ritika Sajdeh was present at the stadium’s gallery, and looked more nervous than her husband who was busy smashing the Lankan bowling attack on field.
Ritika kept her fingers crossed as long as Rohit was batting. The moment the stand-in skipper took a double, and got yet another double ton in ODIs, his wife couldn’t stop her tears. Rohit kissed his ring finger and waved it towards his wife.
Here’s the video:
