Rohit Sharma cheekily shut down fans demanding him to speak in English

Posted On

Amid Coronavirus pandemic, no cricketing event is taking place; hence cricketers, as well as fans, are spending time at their homes in self-isolation. Whether former or currently active, cricketers are engaging in various activities to interact with their fans and followers.


Recently, former England power-hitter Kevin Pietersen had a few Instagram live sessions with other cricketers such as Rohit Sharma and Dale Steyn.

Following KP’s style, India’s frontline pacer Jasprit Bumrah also had an Instagram live session with Team India’s limited over vice-captain. During which, the duo spoke on several topics. From their teammates to their toughest opponents to how they were spending time in isolation, the pair revealed it all.


However, during the session, Rohit was irked as some of his fans asking him to speak in English. He wasn’t impressed with the comments and emphasized that they are Indians and will talk in Hindi itself. Bumrah, also said the same, and then he went on to say that the fans would have asked them to speak in Hindi if they had started their conversation in English in the first place.

“They are saying speak in English, no we are Indians we will be speaking in Hindi only. I will speak in English in the TV interviews, right now I am at home,” Rohit hilariously said.


Earlier, Rohit was invited by Pietersen in the Instagram live session, where the former revealed the lowest point in his career and what brought about a change in his profession.

The 32-year-old disclosed that not getting picked up for the 2011 World Cup squad was the lowest point of his career.

“Not getting picked for the 2011 World Cup squad, that was the saddest moment as it was happening in our own backyard, the final was played at my home ground,” said Rohit during the chat with Pietersen.
