Hard-hitting cricketer Rohit Sharma’s flying kiss to his wife Ritika Sajdeh, who was sitting in the spectator stands, was nothing unusual or arresting at the moment. It was another instance of a cricketer’s optimistic cheerfulness. His wife accepted the distant flying kiss calmly and deliberately.
When she looked at his stunning shots, she became captivated by the idea of enjoying the momentary thrill with the entire optimistic attitude. She heaved a sigh of relief and was overwhelmed with joy.
She appeared to have stopped seeing him once Rohit completed his fresh record. Throughout his innings, her attention darted between the wickets to his left and his right.
Rohit completed his third double century in ODI cricket. This was his remarkable record and a big feat on the cricket ground. He celebrated it in style, as his wife continued to cheer him from the stands.
Even Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi was also famous for his sixes in the presence of Sharmila Tagore. G Viswanath also made remarkable shots in his wife’s presence. MS Dhoni too showed off his shots in his wife’s presence. Azharuddin also made different and gutsy shots before his wife. Now, it is only to be expected that Virat Kohli will also show his batting skills in the presence of his wife, Anushka Sharma.
Rohit, the Indian captain in the absence of Virat Kohli, ‘flew’ a graceful kiss to his nervous wife after reaching the milestone. By hammering an unbeaten 208 runs off 153 balls, he has also amassed over 1200 runs in ODIs in 2017.
