Rohit Sharma yesterday returned back, after an injury, to play with his team Mumbai Indians against Rajasthan Royals in an IPL match in Mumbai.
The hosts gave a good start at the Wankhede stadium, displaying great performances by all the players. Especially, Rohit, who displayed great strategy on field.
However, it was one moment from the match involving the Hitman that has caught internet’s attention.
In, what can be called, a great display of his great strategy, Rohit saved himself from getting stumped when he stopped the ball with his outstretched leg.
In the video, which has been going viral ever since the match, Sharma can be seen instantly stretching his leg in order to kick an incoming ball away.
Take a look:
The moment may have been a superb spectacle to witness, but Twitterati had other plans for it.
The video became the perfect fodder for memes online and people are not holding back.
From joking about Rohit Sharma displaying his football skills on a cricket pitch to making hilarious memes out of it, here’s what Twitterati is saying:
