Rohit Sharma, the captain of Team India, has recently found himself in the spotlight, but this time, it’s not for his stellar cricketing skills. The swashbuckling cricketer has received not one, not two, but three traffic challans for over-speeding on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway.
This incident occurred as Rohit Sharma was on his way to join the Indian team for their upcoming ODI World Cup match against Bangladesh. The reports from Pune Mirror reveal that he was driving at alarming speeds, often exceeding 200 km/h and at times even reaching 215 km/h.
As the leader of the Indian cricket team, Rohit Sharma’s responsibilities extend beyond the cricket field. His on-road behavior has drawn the attention of traffic authorities, who are keeping a close eye on reckless driving. The three challans issued to him serve as a reminder that no one is above the law.
The Indian cricket team is set to face Bangladesh in a highly anticipated World Cup clash. This match carries added significance for Team India, as they seek to avenge their sole defeat in the Asia Cup to Bangladesh in a Super 4 clash. During that encounter, Team India was missing key players like Virat Kohli, Mohammed Siraj, and Jasprit Bumrah.
However, the tables have turned, and Shakib Al Hasan and his team will now face a full-strength Indian side led by Rohit Sharma in what promises to be a high-octane battle.
Rohit Sharma, as the captain, has the responsibility of leading by example both on and off the field. The traffic challans serve as a reminder that road safety is a matter of utmost importance, even for a cricketing icon. As Team India gears up for their clash with Bangladesh, Rohit Sharma must ensure that he steers clear of any further traffic violations and focuses on leading his team to victory on the cricket pitch.
