India captain Rohit Sharma is probably one of the most loved crickets in the country. Cricket fans go crazy to get even a glimpse of the star Indian opener on and off the field. A similar incident took place on August 15, Tuesday. Rohit who wanted to leave the hotel to celebrate India’s 75th independence day was asked to stay inside by the security as the crowd was getting out of control. In the video, Rohit can also be seen hitting his forehead in disappointment.

Rohit, who had taken a break before the Asia Cup, was all but surrounded by thousands of fans who wanted to get a glimpse of him. The security guards had to come to his rescue. Rohit had to move back to his hotel with a lot of fans waiting to see him at the door. Right from leading the Mumbai Indians in IPL and going to captain the country in all three formats, Rohit has always had a special place in the heart of the fans. The 35-year-old has been outstanding in terms of leadership skills. He is yet to lose a T20I series since becoming the full-time captain and recently led India to a 4-1 victory over West Indies in the five-match T20Is. Meanwhile, the 15-member Indian squad for the Asia Cup 2022 was recently announced, and Rohit will lead the side.
Earlier on Monday, New Zealand Martin Guptill became the leading run-scorer on the history of T20 international cricket, overtaking Rohit (3,487 runs) with a small margin. Guptill scored 15 runs but did enough to leave Rohit behind, he’s now with 3497 runs in his T20I career. Rohit and third-placed Virat Kohli (3,308) will get the chance to move to the top when India take part in the Asia Cup that commences later this month in the UAE
