Team India skipper Rohit Sharma has only himself to curse after he failed to convert the start into a big knock in the third ODI against Sri Lanka in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday, January 15.
The hosts once again got off to a flying start after deciding to bat first at the Greenfield International Stadium. Rohit and Shubman Gill came hard at the Lankan bowlers, dispatching them all over the park.
Rohit, in particular, was in sumptuous touch and played some delightful-looking shots. Just when it looked like he was going to break his century jink, Rohit holed out to deep square leg after a well-made 42 off 49 deliveries, laced with two boundaries and three sixes.
It was a short-pitched delivery from Chamika Karunaratne and the Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper latched on to it. There was only one fielder protecting the boundary and Rohit gave him a simple catch.
Fans were certainly disappointed with the Indian skipper and slammed him for not making the most out of the innings. Rohit himself was in complete disbelief and was on his knees before making his way back to the dressing room.
Here are some of the reactions:
Everyone are scoring hundred after their lean patch and then see Rohit who busy in throwing wkt after getting set.
Still no worked on foot movement and lack of playing off side shots.
