Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh recently shared details of his first meeting with Rohit Sharma during the first edition of the ICC T20 World Cup in 2007.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Singh recalled how Sharma used to sit behind him in the team bus. The 42-year-old said Rohit used to speak in Mumbai’s local slang.
“I know Rohit from the ICC T20 World Cup 2007 in South Africa. He used to sit behind me and conversed in Mumbaiya style, saying things like ‘kaisa hai re tu?’ and ‘kaisa hai shaane?’. He is a very sweet guy.”
Singh added that as soon as he saw Sharma bat, he was confident of his success in international cricket.
“When I saw him bat, I knew he would make a name for himself in international cricket. He is a good batter but a ten times better person.”
