India vs West Indies 2018 ODIs: The crowd at Brabourne Stadium was cheering ‘Rohit, Rohit’, but the cricketer asked them to cheer ‘India, India’ is surely the best thing you will see on the internet today. The incident transpired while India was fielding and he was positioned at the boundary ropes. Once Rohit made that indication pointing towards his jersey, the fans started obliging to his request and started chanting ‘India, India’.

India captain Virat Kohli, on the other hand, had a very different reaction to what Rohit had when fans were chanting his name.
Virat Kohli orchestrated the thunder claps along with hundreds in attendance at the Brabourne stadium – more like what we see in football- although different to the iconic Viking clap. This culture to engage players and fans is growing popular in the game of cricket as well.
Both the cricketers are gems for the country and have been in ominous form throughout the five-match ODI series against the touring Windies team.
Meanwhile, ahead of the final ODI, Ravi Shastri, Shikhar Dhawan, and Umesh Yadav were spotted at the 16th century Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram. The cricketers were there to take blessings ahead of the final ODI. The cricketers also obliged fans by clicking selfies. This was not the first time Shastri paid a visit to the temple. In fact, last time India played a match at this venue against New Zealand, Ravi Shastri had paid a visit to the iconic temple. India had won that T20I match by 6 runs to clinch the three-match T20I series.
