India completed a clean sweep 3-0 after defeating Afghanistan in a historic double-super over at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Rohit Sharma also made a resounding comeback in the shortest format with a blistering 121* and was equally supported by Rinku Singh 69* which propelled India towards a strong total of 212-4.
In this video, a funny incident occurred between Rohit Sharma and umpire Virender Sharma during the match where Rohit was heard in the stump mike saying: "Hey Viru (Virender Sharma), did you give the first ball as thigh pad - It clearly touched the bat. I have already been dismissed for 0 twice,"
Classic Rohit Sharma ...!!! 👌😂— Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) January 17, 2024

This incident took place during the second over of the match, a ball which was bowled by Azmatullah Omarzai touched the inside edge of Rohit's bat before hitting his pads and the batter went on to take a single. However, the umpire gave it a leg-bye and Rohit could not control his reaction.
After that, Rohit Sharma went on to score his 5th T20 International hundred and became the first batsman to achieve this feat.
As Rohit mentioned earlier, he wanted the team to be tested as these kind of matches will help the team ahead of the upcoming World T20 which will start on June 1 in West Indies & United States.
