Rohit Sharma, who led Mumbai Indians to their record fourth Indian Premier League (IPL) title in Hyderabad last Sunday, took some down time before flying out to participate in World Cup 2019, starting on May 30 in England and Wales. Rohit Sharma took to Instagram to share some pictures from his trip to the Maldives. The Indian vice-captain, who has been a busy man in the last few months, spent some quality time with his family, including his wife Ritika Sajdeh and daughter Samaria. "Partner in crime for life never as zen as I am here in this part of the world. Perfect gateway," Rohit Sharma captioned one of the pictures.
