The Indian cricket team’s skipper Rohit Sharma was absent from the first One Day International (ODI) of the three-ODI series that took place at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Friday, March 17.
The reason behind his absence was due to personal commitments. While the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had initially announced the ODI squad, they had not specified that Rohit would be missing the first ODI to attend his brother-in-law Krunal’s wedding. However, it was mentioned that he would be available for the remaining two ODIs.
On Friday morning, a video of Rohit dancing with his wife, Ritika Sajdeh, went viral on social media. In the video, Rohit can be seen dancing to the popular Punjabi song ‘Lal Ghagra’. It was the first time Rohit was seen performing on stage, and his fans were impressed with his never-seen-before dance moves. The video garnered much attention on social media and became a trending topic.

In Rohit’s absence, Hardik Pandya led Team India in the first ODI against Steve Smith-led side. Pandya became the 27th ODI captain for India.
Rohit recently led India to a 2-1 victory in the four-match Test series.
“We knew how important it was to start the series well. The Delhi Test, I am very proud of. We were behind in the game. At Indore, we were put under pressure and lost the game. Different players put their hands up. Lot of guys took up the responsibility and bailed us out,” Rohit had said in Ahmedabad after India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023.
“Test Cricket is hard fought cricket and isn’t easy. I am quite satisfied. I know what kind of benchmark I have set for myself. I keep the personal milestones aside. We have got the result from what I wanted from the series. To get the result makes us very happy.”
