Team India skipper Rohit Sharma was once again in his witty self when asked who he thinks is the toughest Pakistan bowler to face. Admitting that they are all good, he would not name anyone as it would offend others and could lead to a bigger controversy. Rohit’s reaction took the reporters as well as his wife Ritika Sajdeh by surprise.
Rohit Sharma recently led India during the Test in the West Indies. While the tourist team won the two-match Test series 1-0, the captain was then rested for the two ODIs of the three-match series, which India won 2-1. He is not a part of the current T20 series. At an event in the United States, Rohit was asked the toughest bowler from Pakistan. He gave an amusing answer:
“Pakistan team mein sab ache hai. Mai kisi ka naam nahi loonga. Bada bada controversy hota hai (All the pacers in Pakistan team are equally good. I will not going to pick any individual. It creates big controversy).”
“Ek ka naam lete hai toh doosre ko acha nahi lagta. Doosre ka lete hai toh teesre ko acha nahi lagta. Saare hi ache hai (If I will take one player’s name, the second will feel bad. If I will take second players’ name, then the third will feel bad. I think all of them are good),” the Indian captain went on to add.
In the Asia Cup 2023, arch-rivals India and Pakistan will face off at the Pallekele International Stadium on September 2, 2023.

“I Decided Not To Watch World Cup” – Rohit Recounts Feelings Of Missing 2011 World Cup
Rohit Sharma was not a part of the Men in Blue outfit for the 2011 World Cup, which was played in India. Recalling the disappointing times, he said that he had initially decided not to watch the World Cup, but later followed it quite closely.
“2011 (World Cup) was a memorable one for all of us, I remember watching it from home, every single match, every single ball which was being bowled and that was being played. There were two kinds of emotions, one was obviously I was not a part of it, so I was a little disappointed. I decided I was not going to watch the World Cup, but again, the second memory I remember was that India was playing so well, the quarter-finals onwards,” the 36-year-old said.
Team India won the 2011 World Cup, ending their 28-year-old wait to win the tournament.
