Rohit Sharma had scored his third double ODI hundred on his marriage anniversary in 2017, dedicating this special knock to wife Ritika Sajdeh. It was a gesture, which touched the hearts of cricket fanatics, calling Rohit Sharma a true and dedicated husband.
"I'm happy my wife is here with me on this special day. I know she would have liked this gift from me. She has been my strength. She has always been there for me. You go through so much stress in this sport, and having them around is always special," Rohit had said at the post-match press conference.
"This is our second anniversary, but more than that, we won the game," the then Indian captain had said.
His comeback to form century in the fifth ODI against South Africa added another romantic chapter in their relationship. Taking to Instagram, the right hand batsman posted a picture along with Man of the Match Trophy, bestowing love on Ritika and labeling it as a Valentine’s gift for her. "Happy Valentine’s Day Rits @ritssajdeh," he captioned an Instagram post. She was moved by Rohit’s token of love, replying back instantly.
For the record, Rohit Sharma was finding hard to middle the ball properly and his surreal dismissals had opened a can of worms for one of the best openers in international cricket. However, his most recent hundred will surely silence critics for the time being, at least.
