  • Rohit Sharma put on quite a lively show on the pitch against Australia in the first T20I.
  • The Indian skipper is generally considered a calm and collective person.
  • Since becoming captain of India, Rohit’s body language seems to have changed.
The opening T20I between India and Australia did not go as the hosts expected. Although the batting unit did very well to muster a total of 208 runs on the board, skipper Rohit Sharma failed to express himself with the bat, going for 11 runs from 9 balls. Rohit may have been expressionless with the bat, but his on-court expressions while Indian bowling set Twitter ablaze.

Rohit is seen as a calm and collective person who doesn’t express himself much on the pitch. However, Mohali’s case was quite different. The 35-year-old’s antics have seen many fans frown. The way Rohit behaved with his teammates and the friendly or rather notorious demeanor gave fans a great opportunity to flood social media with memes.

The way Rohit caught wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik’s batter’s header was probably the highlight of the game for the memers. Here are some of the memes that have gone viral on social media since the first T20I:

As for the match, Hardik Pandya put on a fine show with the bat, scoring 30 71s to take India’s tally to 208 runs. Suryakumar Yadav and KL Rahul have also contributed heavily to India’s cause. However, India was disappointed with the bowling unit as no one except Axar Patel managed to keep the save rate below 10.
Cameron Green’s 71 from 30 and Matthew Wade’s 45 from 21 were enough to guide the tourists to a 4-wicket win with 4 balls in reserve.

Speaking of the loss, Rohit was quick to point out that the bowlers weren’t up to snuff.

“I don’t think we played well. 200 is a good score to defend, and we didn’t take our chances on the field. It was a great effort from our hitters, but the bowlers weren’t everything. There are some things we need to look at, but it was a great game for us to figure out what was wrong. We know this is a high-scoring pitch. You can’t help yourself. relax even if you get 200. We took the wickets to some extent but they played really well. They played some amazing shots.

“If I was in that locker room, I would expect to chase that total. You can back up to defend 60 runs in the last 4 overs. We couldn’t take that extra wicket. That was the turning point, if “We wanted to have taken another wicket, things would have been different. You can’t score 200 every day, you have to hit well. Hardik hit very well to get us there. We need to review our bowling before the next game,” did he declare.
