Bhai look at the heat he's expressing after one bad match 🤣🤣🤣 kicking ball , yelling at bowlers and fielders .— `` (@KohlifiedGal) February 18, 2022
And he hasn't captained against any mainstream side yet . The more he captains against them the more we'll see this version of Rohit . https://t.co/yJXSs1VOPl
Very unlike Rohit this series in terms of expressing his emotions. Certainly not what is expected of him.— Ananya (@_ananya_71) February 18, 2022
That was literally very horrible from Rohit and he should be fined and punished as per the rules for showing that dissent— Starlord | PainEra (@NotTheDarkBlade) February 18, 2022
