The 'Rohit Sharma vs Hardik Pandya' controversy does not seem to end anytime soon as fans continue to express their dissatisfaction over Mumbai India’s decision to replace the Hitman as the skipper of MI. Not just MI fans, every cricket lovers, experts, and former veterans have come out in support of Rohit and slammed his replacement.

The outrage among fans is so much that the entire Rohit-Pandya saga is being compared to a particular scene from SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster ‘Baahubali 2’ where Amarendra Baahubali (played by Prabhas) is replaced by Bhallaldeva (Rana Daggubati) as the king of Mahashmati.

Bhallaldeva’s coronation takes place at a grand note but he seethes with jealousy over Amarendra’s popularity among the citizens. Likewise, Rohit Sharma’s popularity among the fans is so high that they are not able to accept Pandya as the captain.

The viral video shows the sentiment of fans regarding Rohit Sharma and is going viral on social media. Cricket lovers across the globe, including our arch-rival Pakistan, hailed Rohit as the best captain of India in the comment section.

“In just two months, Rohit Sharma, the original Baahubali of cricket, will be back as the captain of team India in T20 World Cup, so ignore that Chapri Pandya,” a fan commented.

Another fan wrote, “This scene so aptly shows the sentiment of Hitman Rohit Sharma fans in the present scenario.”

“Pandya can never in his lifetime get the love fans have for Rohit Sharma. #Chapri,” commented a third fan.
