Meanwhile, when Rohit Sharma reached his half-century, he looked at the sky and mouthed a few words while pointing his bat toward the sky. Many fans claimed that it was for his pet dog who unfortunately took his last breathe on the eve of the game.

Here is the video of the incident:

On the other hand, Rohit’s wife Ritika had shared a post on Instagram sharing the sad news of their pet’s passing. It had photos of the dog with family members including Rohit hugging the pooch.

She wrote: “Yesterday was by far the hardest day of our lives. We said goodbye the love of our lives. You have been the best furbaby anyone could ever have. My first love, my first baby, the most gently furball that ever lived. Until we meet again. Our lives will always have a little less Magic in it.”
