Hitman Rohit Sharma’s stunner to send England’s Ollie People packing proves why he is one of the finest fielders in the Indian Team. The India captain took a phenomenal catch in the slips during Ravichandran Ashwin’s bowling to send off Pope on Day 4 of the second Test in Vizag.
The video has left netizens stunned that they cannot stop heaping praises on the India captain. In the viral video, we can see Rohit positioned in the slips while Ashwin is bowling to Pope.
