IND vs AUS: Rohit Sharma heard Steve Smith calling him mad Said “Ye Pagal Hai Thoda, Sanki Hai”
Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja made a great partnership. India lost momentum and continued to lose wickets after lunch, they went step by step.
Australian international Steve Smith ran slowly after the ball and Ravindra Jadeja wanted a double. But Rohit Sharma refused to take the run and said “Ye Pagal Hai Thoda, Sanki Hai” (He is a bit mad, let him be).
