Rohit Sharma, After Test Snub, Flies Off For Vacation With Wife Ritika
Rohit Sharma was ignored for the Indian squad for the first three Tests with England in spite of a great show in the limited-overs series.
Rohit Sharma, after being ignored from India's 18-man squad for the first three Tests of the five-match Test series against England, decided to go on a vacation with wife Ritika Sajdeh. Opening batsman Rohit Sharma took to Instagram and posted a photo with his wife and wrote: "Exploring the beautiful city of Prague #PragueOldTown". The India's selection panel met in Leeds, the venue for England's eight-wicket win in the third and deciding ODI at Headingley on Wednesday, to pick the Test squad but Rohit failed to make it to the squad for the Test series.
Rohit had posted a positive message a day after his was dropped. "Sun will rise again tomorrow," his post read.
Rohit finished as highest run-getter in the Twenty20 International series against England. He had scored 137 runs in three matches at an average of 68.50, including one century.
