Rohit Sharma’s legacy in cricket is twofold: he’s renowned as an exceptional opener for India and the driving force behind Mumbai Indians’ five IPL triumphs. Yet, beyond his cricketing genius, Rohit’s occasional absent-mindedness adds a fascinating layer to his persona, as revealed by his friend and fellow cricketer, Virat Kohli.

Kohli disclosed that Rohit Sharma has a track record of forgetting essentials like passports, watches, and even people’s names. This forgetfulness was highlighted again recently on the eve of a crucial clash between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians at Eden Gardens.

As the team prepared to depart after practice, Rohit found himself stranded near the bus door, seemingly searching for something vital. After a frantic search, it emerged that he had left his phone behind in the dressing room. Rohit disembarked to retrieve it, but to his surprise, someone had already rushed to return it to him, saving the day.

 

Interestingly, IPL regulations prohibit players from accessing personal electronic devices during practice or matches, extending to the day before and the day of the match. The responsibility falls on team management to collect and safeguard phones until players complete their on-field duties.
