  • Rohit Sharma interacted with his followers on Twitter where he answered a barrage of questions thrown at him.

  • Rohit named Sachin Tendulkar as one of the two players he would love to bring back in Mumbai Indians' squad.

With the world coming to a grinding halt in the wake of the ongoing pandemic, sporting activity remains suspended for an indefinite period in India.


The cricketers are making the best of the forced lockdown by spending time with closed ones and interacting with their fans on social media.

Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma held an interactive session with his followers on Twitter on Sunday (August 02). Sharma answered lots of questions and recalled some interesting moments of his career.


The Mumbaikar also talked about two players from the past he would love to share a dressing room once again for IPL’s franchise Mumbai Indians (MI).

“If you could bring one retired MI player back, who would it be?” a user asked on Twitter.

Rohit unhesitatingly named two players instead: Sachin Tendulkar and Shaun Pollock.



Tendulkar led the Mumbai-based franchise for five years and once even reached to the final of the tournament, but unfortunately couldn’t lift the trophy.

While Pollock only played the prestigious tournament in its inaugural year in 2008. The South African veteran featured on 13 occasions and took 11 wickets for MI.

Meanwhile, Rohit is the most successful IPL captain with four trophies to his name. He first led Mumbai Indians in 2013 and won the title in his first attempt itself. The Nagpur-born duly replicated the achievement in 2015, 2017 and the latest in 2019.


His calm demeanour and leadership skill, as evident from his IPL records, has drawn comparison to one of the finest captains and his compatriot MS Dhoni.

Even Suresh Raina recently remarked that Rohit has everything to be the next “MS Dhoni of India”.

In the same session, Rohit responded to Raina’s remarks and said he doesn’t believe in such comparisons since everyone is unique in their own ways.


“Yes, I heard about that comment from Suresh Raina. MS Dhoni is one of a kind and nobody can be like him and I believe comparisons should not be made like that, every individual is different and has his strengths and weaknesses,” said Rohit.
