India crushed New Zealand by eight wickets and sealed their one-day international cricket series with a match to spare on Saturday. Meanwhile, Indian captain Rohit Sharma forgot what his team wanted to do on winning the toss against New Zealand in the second ODI match at Raipur. Match Referee Javagal Srinath, Blackcaps skipper Tom Latham, and commentator Ravi Shastri were kept waiting for Rohit.
“I forgot what we wanted to do, had plenty of discussions with the team about the toss decision, just wanted to challenge ourselves under difficult conditions, but we’ll bowl first,” said Rohit.
I have never seen anyone else so forgetful: Virat Kohli on Rohit Sharma
Now, an old video of Virat Kohli is surfacing on the internet where he spoke about Team India skipper Rohit Sharma and his habit of forgetting things. This forgetting habit of Sharma is nothing new for the players. In a talk show ‘Breakfast With Champions’, by the host Gaurav Kapur, Kohli had spoken about how absent-minded Rohit can be. Kohli went and also said that Sharma had also left his passport also a few times.

“The number of things Rohit Sharma forgets; I have never seen anyone else so forgetful. iPad, wallet, phone…not the small things, but daily use essentials…I don’t care, I’ll get new one. He has no idea he’s left something, the bus would’ve travelled halfway to the hotel and then he remembers ‘Oh, I left my iPad on the plane’. He’s left his passport also a few times. It was really difficult retrieving it. The logistical manager always asks, ‘Does Rohit Sharma have all his stuff?’. Once he gets a yes from Rohit then only does the bus departs,” Kohli had said five years ago.
“Initially, when Rohit was bursting onto the scene, we were all very curious because everyone was talking about this player Rohit Sharma. We had this curiosity because we were also young players but nobody was talking about us. Then during the T20 World Cup, I saw him bat and slumped on the sofa. That shut my mouth forever. When you saw him play, you understood what people were talking about,” Kohli had added.
