Mumbai: Despite been given a break for the current West Indies tour of India, Rohit Sharma is keeping track of what his teammates are up to in the Caribbean. The stylish right-hander, who is known to be jovial, took a friendly jibe at all-rounder Kedar Jadhav on Instagram as he compared Jadhav’s action with Lasith Malinga, Sri Lankan pacer and Rohit’s Mumbai Indians’ teammate.
Jadhav proved his credentials as a part-time bowler in the recent ICC Champions Trophy and Indian captain Virat Kohli has never shied away from giving the Pune cricketer a go even in the pressure-cooker situations.
To baffle the batsmen, the Orthodox right-arm off spinner also delivers a low arm swing of the hand which is slightly similar to that of Malinga. And spotting this, Rohit poked fun at his countryman.
The Indian opener took to Instagram and shared a picture of Malinga and Jadhav’s similar bowling actions. “Why worry when we have one of our own @kedarjadhavofficial,” wrote Rohit.
After enduring a frustrating thigh injury that kept him out of Test cricket during the New Zealand series last year, Rohit will look forward to cementing his place in the longer format of the game as well after being selected for the Test squad for the tour of Sri Lanka....
