Rohit Sharma, India’s white ball vice-captain and key player in the batting, is unaware of the level of the fifth Test that was dropped in Manchester against England last month, but it is clear in his mind that his team “won” the tough series 2-1.
The fifth Test in Manchester was dropped after India’s junior physio Yogesh Parmar tested positive for Kovit-19. This happened after some senior members of the Indian support staff were also found to be infected.
The BCCI has agreed to play the Fifth Test in July 2022. BCCI President Saurav Ganguly has said that this is an extension of the series this year and not a one-time game that England want.
“I don’t know what’s going on in the last Test. We ‘ve been playing Test cricket for a year (next year) but in my mind we won the series 2-1,” said adidas’ Impossible Is Nothing, a sportswear company that includes Tokyo Olympic weightlifter Mirabai Sanu. Rohit said during the campaign.and boxer Lovlina Borgohein among other sports stars.
Asked if the England series, which has scored over 400 runs with four hundred and fifty in four games, would not be a milestone for him, he replied: “It’s a good thing considering where I stand in my Test career.”
But the soon-to-be T20 captain refused to call it his best series.
“This is not my best series. I still feel I can do it. I used the time before the World Test Championship final in Southampton. I was very happy and want to take it further.”
Rohit is actively involved in the ‘Save the Rhinoceros’ campaign and the plastic-free stable planet. He talked about his experience so far.
When I went to Kenya in 2014 I was very sad to learn about the condition of rhinos. India and Africa are the two most populous places for rhinos.
Commenting on the company’s specially designed cricket shoes that carry the message to save the rhinos, Rohit said, “I often thought why not take my cause to the field.
