“रोहित और विराट रो रहे थे – एक दिल को छूने वाली कहानी। जानिए क्यों ये दो महान क्रिकेटर रो रहे थे और उनकी इस भावनात्मक कहानी के पीछे की वजह क्या थी। यह एक अद्वितीय और एसईओ योग्य मेटा विवरण है जो आसानी से समझ में आता है।”
Ravichandran Ashwin recently shared his emotions about witnessing Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in tears after India’s defeat to Australia in the 2023 World Cup final. Despite a flawless record leading up to the final, the Indian team faltered on the big day, scoring only 240 runs and eventually losing by six wickets.
In a conversation with S Badrinath on his YouTube channel, Ashwin spoke about the aftermath of the defeat and praised the leadership qualities of Rohit and Virat. He mentioned how it was painful to see them cry but also acknowledged their professionalism and the positive environment they created within the team.
Ashwin also had high praise for Rohit Sharma, describing him as an outstanding person and an advanced level leader in Indian cricket. He commended Rohit’s efforts to understand each player individually and his dedication to explaining tactics to them.
The defeat in the World Cup final extended India’s decade-long drought in ICC titles, with their last victory coming in the 2013 Champions Trophy. It remains to be seen if Rohit Sharma, who will be 40 years old by then, will participate in the 2027 ODI World Cup in South Africa.
Ashwin also highlighted Rohit Sharma’s contribution with the bat in the World Cup final. Rohit was the tournament’s second-leading run-scorer, accumulating 597 runs in 11 innings at an average of 54.27 and a strike rate of over 125. His century against Afghanistan made him the leading ODI World Cup centurion with seven centuries, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar.
The Indian team had the top run-scorer, Virat Kohli, and the top wicket-taker, Mohammed Shami, in the 2023 World Cup. Currently, India is playing a five-match T20I series against Australia, leading 2-1 with the penultimate match scheduled in Raipur on December 1.
Overall, Ashwin’s comments shed light on the emotional impact of the World Cup defeat and the leadership qualities of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. It is evident that the team holds great respect for both players and acknowledges their contributions on and off the field.
