Owing to personal commitments, India’s regular cricket team skipper Rohit Sharma won’t play in the first One-Day International (ODI) against Australia at the Wankhede stadium on Friday. The generation’s top white-ball player, Rohit, will likely miss the first ODI to attend his brother-in-wedding.
A clip form the wedding was uploaded to social media. It shows Rohit and his wife Ritika Sajdeh setting the stage on fire with their breath-taking dance moves.

Rohit would be leading the team as captain for the last two ODIs. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma, India’s usual skipper, will not be there for the game owing to family obligations. Vice-captain Hardik Pandya, who has led the T20 team superbly, will fill in for him while he is away, giving him another opportunity to solidify his position as the front-runner to succeed Rohit Sharma as captain.
The hosts suffered a major setback following the middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer’s decision to miss the entire series on account of a back injury sustained during the fourth and final Test against Australia in Ahmedabad.
Though the team advances into another series in the absence of pace spearhead, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd Shami, Mohd Siraj, youngster Umran Malik, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, and captain Hardik Pandya will allow the selectors to test the pace department once more in preparation for the World Cup. These players also gave a prolific performance in the Test series against Australia.
