Rohit Sharma posted a throwback picture of Team India’s successful Champions Trophy 2013 campaign with a factual blunder.
Team India’s vice-captain, Rohit Sharma is currently in England churning runs and winning games for India at World Cup 2019.
Everyone remembers Rohit’s career as a full-fledged opener started exactly six years ago during Champions Trophy 2013 in England. Having debuted in 2007, Rohit Sharma’s inconsistency playing in the middle-order cost him his place many times.
But, since Champions Trophy 2013 where he started opening, he has been one of the best openers in the World, and Rohit Sharma had time and again credited Champions Trophy 2013 as the turning point in his career.
Coming to the incident, Team India had won their first Champions Trophy under MS Dhoni in 2013 exactly six years ago on June 23, 2013. To cherish the moment, Rohit Sharma posted a photo which has him, Dhawan, Raina, and Bhuvi holding aloft the silverware.
However, the catch here is the hashtag he has used in the caption. He mistakenly used #ChampionsTrophy2017 instead of #ChampionsTrophy2013. Rohit, however, took down the post and reposted it after correcting the hashtag.
We all know how embarrassing the Champions Trophy 2017 final was for Team India, where we saw India losing to Pakistan in a one-sided final.
Here’s the pic which he posted on Twitter, which he deleted later.
With cricketers at the helm of social media’s content source, each of their activities is actively monitored. This harmless mistake of Rohit Sharma may just give rise to a new meme or troll material.
