Sharma explained, “My first paycheque was not a paycheque, it was cash which I won while playing a match near my society, it was Rs 50 and obviously, it was spent by eating roadside Vada Pav with my friends.” 

The Mumbai Indians captain was hosting a Twitter Question and Answer session on Sunday when asked about the number of times spinner Yuzvendra Chahal calls him in a day, Rohit replied that they don’t talk on the phone. He said, “No Chahal doesn’t call me when I am at home. We have enough of each other when we are on a tour. He enjoy our time off from each other.”


Rohit Sharma also reacted to Suresh Raina’s comparison of him with legendary MS Dhoni. Rohit said a comparison like that should not be made as MS Dhoni was ‘one of a kind’ and nobody can be like him.
