Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, is highly displeased with the broadcasters. Rohit scored a century on Tuesday, which India vs. New Zealand LIVE Broadcast partner identified as his first ODI century in the previous three years. This positioning has angered the Indian skipper. Rohit was so enraged by the remark that he took offence, stating, “They should show the right things,” to the presenter.
What did Rohit Sharma say?
Rohit’s 85-ball 101 in the third ODI against New Zealand at the Holkar Stadium on Tuesday was highlighted by BCCI’s official broadcaster Star Sports as being his first in this format in three years. The captain of India complained that they weren’t showing the “right things” in response to Star’s fairly true comment.
During the post-match interview, when asked about the gap, Rohit remarked, “Regarding the first hundred in three years, I’ve played only 12 ODIs in three years, so three years sounds like a lot.” In January 2020 against Australia, the seasoned opener scored his 29th ODI century. As soon as the journalist made it clear that it wasn’t a criticism of him, Rohit fired back.
Rohit stated, “You guys should know what’s happening. I know that it was shown on the broadcast, sometimes, you (the broadcasters) need to show the right things also. The last entire year, we didn’t play ODI cricket, we focused on T20 cricket a lot. So, sometimes, people should keep things in mind…the broadcasters should show the right things.”
Rohit Sharma becomes third-highest
India’s skipper Rohit Sharma ended his ODI century drought with an outstanding effort on Tuesday in Indore. The opening batsman scored his 30th such total in the format in the third and final ODI played at the Holkar Stadium, scoring 101 off 85 with the aid of 13 fours and five sixes.
With the century, Rohit also matched the ODI record of 30 tonnes held by legendary Australian player Ricky Ponting. On the all-time list of ODI century makers, only Sachin Tendulkar (49) and Virat Kohli (46) are now ahead of Rohit Sharma.
