After returning home to be with his wife Ritika Sajdeh for the birth of their newborn daughter Samaira, Rohit Sharma had joined the India team in the lead up to the three-match ODI series against Australia, starting January 12 in Sydney.

When the newly-turned dad was speaking to the media in the first press conference ahead of the first T20I, an Indian journalist won a lot of hearts when he presented a toy to Rohit for little Samaira.

Towards the end of the press conference, the journalist walked up to Rohit and handed him the gift on behalf of all the touring journalists in Sydney.

The Indian vice-captain called it a sweet gesture and thanked the journalist.
