In 2013, Rohit Sharma, who replaced Ricky Ponting as captain, made Mumbai Indians champions 5 times in 8 years. In IPL 2023, Rohit will complete 10 years as the captain of Mumbai. Rohit, who leads Team India and Mumbai in the field, is considered a fearless captain. However, Rohit was extremely scared at the time of his entry into the team. He used to be very scared of a player from Punjab.
When Rohit Sharma joined Team India, he was very scared on the first day. Hitman himself disclosed this in an interview. Rohit was asked who raged when he joined the Indian team? On this he said, a player had done it. I was very scared of him. According to Rohit, it was my first day in Team India. I reached an hour before the scheduled time. I was about to board the Indian team bus for the first time. Rohit Sharma told, I went and stood in the lobby. He sat there for a while. When the bus arrived, all the players slowly started going towards it. I started seeing who is sitting where. Sachin paaji went in the bus, Rahul bhai also went. There were 2-3 boys with me in the team. I didn’t play with them, but they were in my age group. I was relieved to see him and I also went and sat on a seat in the bus.
‘Know whose seat it is’
Rohit Sharma told that after I sat down, Yuvraj Singh was seen coming towards the bus from the lobby. I have been a big fan of Yuvi. His style is unique. When Yuvraj entered the bus, I said, Yuvi pa… hi my self Rohit. On this Yuvi said, yes, but do you know on whose seat you are sitting. I said don’t know. He said that it is my seat, go and sit there.
