Controversies of Rohit Sharma:

In the 2015 World Cup quarter-final match between India and Bangladesh, when Rubel Hossain took the wicket of Rohit Sharma, Pakistan’s umpire Aleem Dar adjudged Rubel’s full-toss as waist high ‘no-ball’. However, TV replays showed that it was a real touch-and-go situation which could have gone either way. The very next day ICC president Mustafa Kamal who criticised “poor umpiring.” ICC, however, claimed that it was a 50-50 call and umpire’s decision must be respected.

  • Earlier, he used to bat at No. 8 or 9, as a tailender, but when his coach saw potential in his batting, he promoted his batting order in the nets. And, for the first time, he opened in an inter-school ‘Giles Shield’ tournament match, where he scored career-changing 120-odd runs.
  • He once said that he struggles to bat against Brett Lee.
  • In 2009, he took an IPL hat-trick for Deccan Chargers against Mumbai Indians at Centurion, South Africa, by dismissing Abhishek Nayar, Harbhajan Singh, and Saurabh Tiwary.
