Rohit Sharma's Hilarious Reaction to 20-Year-Old Picture

Rohit Sharma’s Hilarious Reaction to 20-Year-Old Picture

Ahead of their clash against Punjab Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma shared a lighthearted moment with teammate Romario Shepherd. The incident occurred when Rohit stumbled upon a picture of himself at 20 years old, just starting out for the Indian team.

The Mumbai Indians took to social media to post a video of the encounter, captioning it, “Bholi si surat, aankhon mein masti… Jab Hitman met 20-year-old Ro today.” In the video, Rohit reacts to the picture, remarking that he was a “small boy” and struggling to grow a beard.

The Hardik Pandya-led Mumbai Indians are currently eighth in the IPL 2024 points table with just four points, having won only two of their six matches. The five-time champions have a net run rate of -0.234 in the 17th edition of the IPL.

In their previous match against Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians won the toss and elected to field first. After a slow start, Ruturaj Gaikwad (69) and Shivam Dube (66*) stitched a 90-run partnership to propel CSK to a formidable 206/4.

In response, Mumbai Indians got off to a solid start with Ishan Kishan (23) and Rohit Sharma (101) putting on a 70-run opening stand. However, Rohit’s century was not enough to carry the team to victory as they fell short by 20 runs, ending with 186/6.

Matheesha Pathirana (4/28) was the standout bowler for CSK, while Hardik Pandya (2/43) was the pick of the bowlers for Mumbai Indians.

International Stars Flock to Major League Cricket 2024

Major League Cricket (MLC) 2024 is set to witness a star-studded lineup of international players, with several high-profile signings announced on the eve of the tournament.

Texas Super Kings

The Texas Super Kings, owned by the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise, have acquired New Zealand allrounder Daryl Mitchell as their new overseas signing. Mitchell, who was part of CSK’s IPL squad in 2023, will join his New Zealand teammates Mitchell Santner and Devon Conway in the USA.

MI New York

The defending champions, MI New York, have bolstered their squad with the signings of West Indies allrounder Romario Shepherd and South African fast bowler Anrich Nortje. Shepherd, who has been in impressive form for the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the CPL, will reunite with his former West Indies captain and Mumbai Indians batting coach Kieron Pollard at MI NY.

Seattle Orcas

The Seattle Orcas have signed New Zealand spin-bowling allrounder Michael Bracewell, who has been troubled by injuries in recent times. Bracewell will join his former Wellington Firebirds teammate Finn Allen at the Orcas.

San Francisco Unicorns

The San Francisco Unicorns have acquired Australian batter Matt Short. Short, who has played for the Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League, will add depth to the Unicorns’ batting lineup.

Other Notable Signings

West Indies wicketkeeper-batter Jahmar Hamilton has been picked by the Unicorns, while former Pakistan international Hammad Azam has joined the Orcas. Former Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper-batter Adithya Ganesh has been selected by the Los Angeles Knight Riders as the No.1 pick in the domestic draft.

Super Kings’ Head Coach Stephen Fleming’s Comments

Super Kings’ head coach Stephen Fleming, who worked with Mitchell during his time with the New Zealand coaching staff, expressed his excitement about the allrounder’s signing. “I’m really excited to be part of the Texas Super Kings and to get to yellove again and be part of the CSK family,” Mitchell said.

Shepherd’s Impact on MI NY

Shepherd’s addition to MI NY’s squad is expected to strengthen their death bowling. The West Indian has added a Dwayne Bravo-esque slower dipper to his repertoire, which will be a valuable asset for the team.

Domestic Draft

In the domestic draft, the Super Kings snapped up Raj Nannan and Josh Tromp, while the Knight Riders selected Adithya Ganesh as their top pick. The Super Kings have also added USA mystery spinner Anirudh Immanuel as a net bowler.
