Who is the real boss in a team? For cricket and for India, it has and is still always the captain of the team. And during the second T20I between India and Sri Lanka at Indore, stand-in India skipper Rohit Sharma once again showed it to the crowd.
At put in to bat first by the Sri Lankan captain Thisara Perera at the Holkar cricket stadium, Rohit Sharma just showed why he is at par with the best batsmen in the world. He slammed a brilliant century off just 35 balls, joint fastest with South Africa’s David Miller. Rohit scored 118 to give India total control in the match, as he bludgeoned the Lankan bowlers to all parts of the park.
The skipper dictated terms even when he got out. Right after getting out, Team India head coach Ravi Shastri signaled him asking whom to send to bat. Rohit then waved back at the coach, telling Ravi Shastri to send wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni to bat.
Here’s the video:
Dhoni carried on the team’s momentum with two sixes and two boundaries until Perera clean bowled him in the final over of their innings.
