The last few months have been superb for Rohit Sharma. After being appointed as India’s limited-overs skipper, he was recently named the Test captain as well. The victories over West Indies have been icing over the cake for him, as well as the Asian side.
Thus, India’s next assignment is against Sri Lanka. The emerald island are all set to play three T20Is and two Tests in the next 30-odd days. The Indian captain took to Instagram to share images of his training session.
“𝗡𝗘𝗫𝗧 𝗨𝗣 ➡️ 🇱🇰” read Rohit Sharma’s caption. Thus, indicating his excitement for the upcoming home series. However, it was his wife Ritika Sajdeh’s comment which managed to grab everyone’s attention. She went on to comment on her husband Sharma’s post.

“Yeah yeah that’s all great but can you call me back please 🙄,” read her reply to his post. This suggested that the opener might have missed his wife’s call. Thus, Ritika’a reply went viral instantly.
Her comment has already garnered more than 6000 likes and 375 replies within 2 hours. While some fans requested Sharma to call his wife back, the others laughed at the hilarious conversation between the couple. In the meanwhile, the first of the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka is all set to take place on February 24.
However, this will be a big test for India’s newly-appointed all-format captain as a few key players such as Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur are all set to miss the series. Besides, Sri Lanka have been playing fairly decent in the recent past. Despite losing the five-match T20I series against Australia, they looked good in patches. Moreover, the last time they faced the 2007 20-20 World Cup champions, the Shanka-led side beat them by 2-1.
