Following this, Ritika has shared a special note for the World Cup-winning captain. “I know what this has meant to you. This format, this cup, these men, this journey and this entire process of getting what you’ve always dreamed of. I know how hard these last few months have been for you. I know the toll it’s taken on your heart, mind and body but watching you achieve your dream was incredibly emotional and inspiring,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a picture of Rohit with the trophy.

“As your wife, I am immensely proud of what you’ve achieved and the impact you’ve had on this game and the people who love it; but as someone who loves your game I’m sad to see you leave any part of it behind. I know you’ve thought long and hard about what’s best for this team but that doesn’t make watching you leave that part of it behind any easier,” Ritika further added.

Before Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli had revealed that it was his last T20I match as well as he wants the youngster to take over the responsibility now. And on Sunday, allrounder Ravindra Jadeja also retired from his T20I career.

Rohit said, “That was my last game as well. Honestly, I have enjoyed it since the time I started playing this format. There is no better time to say goodbye to this format. I started my India career playing this format. This is what I wanted to do, win the Cup and say goodbye.”

Since making his T20I debut in September 2007, Rohit Sharma has played 159 matches and registered 4231 runs including five centuries and 32 fifties as well. He was part of the MS Dhoni-led Indian side which beat Pakistan to clinch the inaugural T20 World Cup title as well.
