The Indian cricketers flew to Sydney directly from Dubai after the IPL 2020 as they are supposed to play 3 ODIs, 3 T20Is and 4 test matches against Australia. However, the Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma is still in India as he is recovering from his hamstring injury that he got during the IPL. A controversy got erupted after BCCI didn’t include Hitman in the Indian squad for Australia but the selectors had stated that they would be monitoring the fitness level of Rohit Sharma and Indian pacer Ishant Sharma. However, Rohit Sharma cleared the air when he stepped on the field for his IPL team Mumbai Indians.
Rohit has performed in an impeccable manner for India in the shorter formats but his performance in the longest format has not been as per the expectations. However, the right-handed batsman has shown some good signs after he was given the responsibility of opening the innings in test matches as well.
Presently, the topic of debate among the cricket fans is who will be leading the Indian team in the test matches after Indian skipper Virat Kohli will return to India post the first test match. Virat has taken paternity leave as he wants to be with his wife Anushka Sharma at the time of the birth of their first baby. While some fans feel that Ajinkya Rahane who is the Indian vice-captain in test matches should lead the team in the absence of Virat Kohli, several others are of the opinion that Rohit Sharma will be more suitable for the task.
When one cricket lover asks this question to the former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg, the latter quite clearly expresses his choice as he states that Rahane will do a fine job. Talking about Rohit’s chances, Brad says that the only other option left is Rohit Sharma but he is not even sure of Hitman getting place in the Indian test squad considering his past record.
Here is what Brad Hogg wrote, “Rahane will do a fine job. The only other option would be Rohit but his record touring in Test Cricket provides no certainty of him holding a spot in the team.”

Brad Hogg’s tweet and his opinion on Rohit Sharma have not gone well with many people including the former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer.
Consequently, he trolls the former Aussie player by posting a meme based on the sequence from a movie of Akshay Kumar entitled “Hera Pheri”.
“Aaja beta aaja” is written on the image and we are quite sure that Brad Hogg won’t be able to understand what Wasim wants to convey but the latter has certainly brought smiles on the faces of Indian cricket fans with his meme.
Here is the tweet made by Wasim Jaffer:
