Rohit has been one of the most popular cricketers in the last ten years or so, and enjoys a massive fan base all around the world. Not to mention, his IPL franchise Mumbai Indians have had a massive role to play in it.
While the Mumbai captain has not been at his fluent best in this year’s IPL, barring his 65-run knock against Delhi Capitals, the 35-year-old would look to get his team off to a great start against a formidable Sunrisers Hyderabad side ably led by Aiden Makram.
Having lost the first couple of matches in the tournament, the former champions came back to winning ways against Delhi Capitals and followed it up with another win against Kolkata Knight Riders. With two wins behind their name, Mumbai are now placed seventh in the points table.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have had a similar journey to their start in IPL 2023 but with two back-to-back wins against Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders, the Aiden Makram-led side would like to believe that they have got the winning momentum by their side. Sunrisers Hyderabad are in the eighth spot in the points table.
Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni’s Warm Embrace At Chinnaswamy – WATCH
The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium was all decked up for the marquee clash between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings on Monday as two stalwarts of Indian cricket – Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni were up against each other. While CSK won the high-scoring contest by 8 runs, Dhoni and Kohli were seen having a long chat right after the game got over.
The video almost immediately went viral as one user wrote, “Best moment of the day.. They are heart of cricket fans,” while another one tweeted, “Look at the chemistry and the bonding between these two. The respect from Virat and also the frankness. This is the best duo in the cricketing history. We love you Virat and MSD.”
The affection, respect, and love Kohli and Dhoni have for each other go back a long way. Kohli made his debut in international cricket under Dhoni’s captaincy and his best years with the bat came when Dhoni was at the helm of affairs in Indian cricket.
