Indian Cricket Team is currently having a gala time in the island nation. They have already won the Test series with a game in hand. Virat Kohli and Co had smashed the Sri Lankans comprehensively in the first two Tests of the three match series and continuing its winning streak in the white jerseys.
Indian cricketers are always crowd-pullers no matter where they go. When it comes to the subcontinent, Indians get a lot of love and admiration from Sri Lanka apart from home. The island nation loves cricket and everything related to it.
Sri Lanka loves its cricket. And it loves cricketers even ones who have thrashed their team to create history. Rohit Sharma might have tormented Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens to smash a record-shattering 264 in 2014 but he is loved and adored in the Emerald Isles.
Back in India’s Test squad for the ongoing series against Sri Lanka, Rohit has warmed the bench in Galle and Colombo. However, he has still had a good time, back with his buddies. Rohit also has a lot of buddies off the field, he is a rage among the locals. During the Colombo Test, a few Sri Lankan fans sang for him and then a few came up to visit him during practice.
The BCCI’s official Twitter handle shared a video in which Sharma can be seen enjoying with his Sri Lankan friends and the cricketer retweeted the post saying, “This right here is the true essence of cricket. Love these bunch of guys! They’re amazing.”
