IPL 2019: Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma took to social media to wish his Indian teammate Kedar Jadhav on his birthday. The allrounder turned 34 and his friend Rohit posted a video on his Instagram page where he introduced Kedar as a star from ‘Race 4’. ‘Race’ is a popular film in Bollywood and till date three parts of the film has hit the theatres. It seems Rohit was pulling his Kedar’s leg with this video. Rohit is known for his pranks, he is often seen trolling Yuzvendra Chahal.
Here is what his birthday post for Kedar read, “When (race 4 ) walks you make way. Happy birthday bro.”
In the video, you can see Rohit making way for Kedar, who is roleplaying the protagonist from ‘Race 4’. In the end, they crash on a wall and the fun comes to an end.
Earlier, Rohit Sharma and his Mumbai Indians side suffered a defeat against Delhi Capitals in their opening match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. In the match, it was Rohit’s colleague Rishabh Pant, who displayed a sensational power-hitting guided Delhi Capitals to a 37-run win over his side.
With his unbeaten knock of 78 off just 27 deliveries, Pant gave solid proof of why he should be on the World Cup-bound plane to England. Pant got those runs in only 27 balls and while the relentless onslaught would do his confidence a world of good, Jasprit Bumrah’s shoulder injury two months before the ICC showpiece left the Indian cricket fraternity on tenterhooks.
However, it is not all gloomy for the talented batsman as he has signed a contract extension with global sports brand Adidas. Commenting on the occasion, Rohit Sharma said: “I feel Adidas is the best brand for athletes – I truly believe in their products and the comfort and benefit they offer me in my sport. Further, they have continuously stepped in to provide customized solutions to athletes, including me, thereby helping us overcome many injuries.
