Ahead of the high-octane Indo-Pak tie on Sunday, both teams are sweating it hard on the training grounds. Meanwhile, a video is doing rounds on the internet showing Rohit Sharma fulfilling a special request made by Pakistani fans.
Famous Indian journalist Vimal Kumar uploaded a video on his YouTube channel showcasing the Indian team’s practice session.
Two Pakistani fans, who are ardent admirers of Rohit Sharma, were the highlight of the video.
The fans waited hours for training to get over and meet the Indian skipper. Separated by the fence, one fan constantly chanted, “I love you, Rohit Sharma. Please meet me,” to grab Sharma’s attention.
The hitman made the fans’ day after he agreed to greet them after the training session. As promised, he reached the fence and shook hands with them.
However, one overexcited fan wanted to hug Rohit, and the Indian opener gracefully semi-hugged him through the fence.
Vimal interviewed the fans, where they heaped praise on the hitman, and one of them even revealed a special request he made to the player.
“I am a Pakistan supporter, but Rohit made our day. I had come specially to meet him, and look how good he is to come and meet us after his training despite a fence between us.”
The duo praised Rohit’s class and said he is still the same passionate and skilful cricketer as he was 15 years ago.
Meanwhile, one fan said he even requested Rohit to go easy on the young inexperienced Pakistani bowlers. “We don’t have Shaheen Afridi or Mohamed Amir, so please show mercy on us,” the fan said.
Here is the video of the fan interaction with Rohit Sharma.
