Twitter users thought jokingly the point of view of Rohit and wrote, “Rohit: ‘ye koi tareeka hai beekh mangne ka”, and “Rohit be like: mein Jeb mein lekar thodi ghumta hun?” while the other one wrote, “after watching Rahul’s knock in yesterday’s match and Ishaan’s innings in today’s match, mujhe to ye doubt hai ki Rohit ko yeh log ke jayenge bhi ya nahi !” Yet another one wrote, “don’t worry brother. Rohit is free from tomorrow, he will do it for you.”
