Srinagar: In a typical of being Rohit Sharma, Team India skipper once again forgot his teamates names at the toss during India vs Afghanistan T20I in Mohali.
Rohit Sharma is known for forgetting things and have previously also done same with names of teamates at the toss.
On Thursday, India won the toss and Rohit chose to chase first against Afghanistan. Rohit resumed his role as the T20I captain of India after a hiatus of 14 months.
“I wasn’t in the team for the entire last year, but I’ve been talking to Rahul bhai about what we are doing and understand what we need to do as a group. Winning is the most important thing. Sanju (Samson), Avesh (Khan), (Yashasvi) Jaiswal (who didn’t pull up well)… and Kuldeep are not playing,” Rohit told Kartik, who was conducting the toss with the two captains and the match referee”.
He underwent an extended pause while attempting to remember the third player excluded from the playing XI, eventually recalling Kuldeep Yadav’s name.
Last year, Rohit forgot his decision after winning the toss against New Zealand in an ODI held in Raipur.
