- 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.
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:
Don’t think we played well: Rohit Sharma’s brutal response to India’s series opener loss to Australia
Indian team set unwanted single record with 4 wicket loss to Australia in Mohali
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.
India would now look to win the second T20I on Friday and tie the series 1-1.
