Ritika commented on Rohit’s post and asked Rohit to call her back. It seems that Rohit was so busy in his training that he forgot to call his wife or failed to pick her call.
“Yeah yeah that’s all great but can you call me back please ,” she hilariously wrote possibly suggesting that Hitman might have missed her call during his training session and he had not called her back till that moment.
The comment has got more than 6000 likes and 370 replies in just two hours. Meanwhile, the Men In Blue dealt with a big blow on February 22. Players such as Suryakumar Yadav and Deepak Chahar have ben ruled out of the white-ball series. Yadav suffered a hairline fracture while Chahar pulled his hamstring on February 20. He didn’t bowl his quota of four overs against the West Indies in the final T20I.
However, it is unclear when Yadav got injured but it is believed that he got injured on the same day as Chahar. Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant have already been rested for the T20I series.
