India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, had a scare during Tuesday’s third Twenty20 International against the West Indies when he hobbled off the field in a wheelchair. Before getting injured, Rohit had scored 11 runs off 5 balls (including a home run and four).
As soon as he left the field, questions about the severity of Rohit’s injury and his participation in the upcoming two T20Is were raised. A post-game presentation, however, provided an update from Rohit on the severity of the injury and whether or not he will be able to play in the subsequent games.
India batted brilliantly in Sharma’s absence, chasing down 165 runs and winning by seven wickets.
Positives for India include a 3-2 series lead and a breakthrough performance from opener Suryakumar Yadav. The Indian batsman made a magnificent knock, batting brilliantly and scoring fifty. He hit 76 runs off 44 balls, with eight fours and four sixes. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant contributed useful innings that helped India to a resounding victory.

As of the 15th over on Tuesday, when SKY was dismissed, India still needed over 30 runs, making Pant’s effort all the more crucial. Hardik Pandya followed suit after three overs, entering the locker room. Pant’s quick-fire 33 off 26 balls rescued his team, and his winning runs came courtesy of a boundary off Obed McCoy. Currently, it’s not a big deal. As the next game is still a few days away, he expressed optimism that everything would be fine.
Supporting the sterilization of homeless cats and dogs led Sharma to become a member of PETA. Sharma backed the movement because he believed that sterilization would help reduce the number of stray dogs.
Sharma joined an anti-poaching campaign in Kenya in September 2015 alongside Hollywood actors Matt LeBlanc and Salma Hayek, in an effort to protect Africa’s wildlife and the world’s last remaining northern white rhinoceros.
Sharma, a PETA supporter, explained why he decided to get involved with the campaign: “When I learned about the cause, I felt it was my duty to join the anti-poaching drive. As a result of this, I found myself in Nairobi. Seeing the last northern white rhino, Sudan, and the sniffer dogs that help catch poachers was a fascinating experience.
Sharma announced in a social media video from the previous November that he had signed a deal with a website to have his name and ODI jersey number 45 featured on merchandise such as mobile phone covers. The proceeds from the sales would be donated to an animal charity of Sharma’s choosing, he tweeted.
Sharma was named the WWF-India Rhino Ambassador on “World Rhino Day” in 2018. We are encouraged that sportsmen like Rohit are coming forward to support the call for conservation,” Ravi Singh, CEO and Secretary General of WWF-India, said of the partnership with Sharma. Rohit has made significant contributions to international cricket, and his efforts to protect rhinos in India are greatly appreciated. Here at WWF, we are thrilled to have Rohit join our team.
Sharma, who recently took an oath to protect rhinos, said, “My love for rhinos sparked when I first heard about Sudan, the last male northern white African rhino who passed away this year thus leading to the inevitable extinction of the entire species and that broke my heart.” As the world mourned the loss of my friend Sudan, I looked into what I could do to help prevent a similar tragedy from happening again, and I found that raising awareness was the most effective strategy I could employ.
After learning that India is home to 82% of the world’s rhinos, I felt compelled to get involved with WWF and do what I could to ensure the species’ continued survival by serving as their “Rhino Ambassador” in India. The Indian captain seemed pleased with his team’s play, especially the bowlers’ efforts to limit the Windies to 164 runs when the home side was performing so well. Also, he gave Yadav the credit for the victory.
