Rohit Sharma, the current captain of India, has a distinct style of on-field and off-field expressions compared to his predecessors, Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni. While Dhoni was known for his stoic demeanor, revealing nothing through his facial expressions, Kohli was quite the opposite, wearing his emotions on his face.
Rohit, on the other hand, shares similarities with Kohli in terms of his on-field expressions, but differs in his non-aggressive reactions. Despite displaying frustration when things don’t go India’s way, Rohit rarely shows anger on his face.
During the final session of Day 2 in the fourth Test against Australia, Rohit Sharma’s temper flared up and his emotions were visible on his face. In the sixth over’s last ball, after taking a single off Nathan Lyon, Rohit shouted at a spectator for causing trouble in the sight screen area.
Even before completing the single, Rohit could be heard yelling “Hata usko.” He also brought it to the umpire’s attention, who gestured for the fan to move out of the way.
At stumps, India’s score was 36 for no loss, with a deficit of 444 runs to the touring team. Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma batted positively and attacked the Australian spinners, who delivered five of the ten overs before the end of the day’s play. Rohit scored 17 runs, while Gill scored 18.
