Rohit Sharma said on Tuesday that Yuvraj Singh was his first cricket crush when he came into the Indian team. Rohit started his career in 2007. He was also part of the Indian team that won the first T20 World Cup.
Rohit Sharma made his T20 International match against England in the 2007 World Cup. It was the same match in which Yuvraj Singh hit Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over. The Indian team defeated Pakistan in the final of this tournament and captured the title.
Rohit said during an Instagram live chat with Yuvraj, “Yuvraj Singh Menra had a cricket crush when I came into the team.” Yuvraj had done well for India in both World Cups (2007 T20 and 2011 50 over World Cup).
The current vice-captain of the limited overs of the Indian cricket team said, ‘My role was also like Yuvi Pa. Bat at number 5 and 6 and finish the match. I always wanted to talk to them and learn. ‘ Rohit started his career as a middle-order batsman.
Yuvraj also told them about the first meeting of the two, “Rohit laughingly said not to talk about him.” After this he said- ‘I was on the team bus for the first time. I was afraid that I might be late and because of this I reached half an hour early. I sat on Yuvi Pa’s seat. He was coming from the lobby. With sunglasses I was thrilled to see them coming. Welcomingly done. They asked me, “You know whose seat this is?” Then they asked me to sit somewhere else. ”
Rohit said, ‘After that our relationship was very good. I learned a lot from you. It was a lot of fun. From day one, Yuvraj felt that Rohit would be the most mature of all the young players.
He said, ‘When you came in the team, you were 20 years old. I have seen you growing up and I told you that you will become the most matured player among all these young players. And it happened. You have taken your game to a different level. ‘
The two players also talked about the corona virus, which has caused the whole world to stagnate at the moment. Rohit said, ‘We need to be responsible and follow the government guidelines. We should stay at home for our future. ‘
