Mumbai Indians (MI) opener Rohit Sharma revealed that he was a bit scared when a fan entered the field and stood next to him during the 17th edition of the match against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Wankhede Stadium. . The Indian captain said that when the incident happened on April 1, he was actually standing at the slips and setting the field. He (the fan) just said that I am a big fan of his and I want a hug. I said yes hug but please don't do that otherwise you will be in big trouble. I was actually standing at the slips trying to set the field, suddenly Tim David, who was standing at mid-off, was signaling to someone coming behind me. “I was,” Rohit said in the Club Prairie Fire podcast. Couldn't understand what he was trying to say, but this guy suddenly stood next to me and I honestly got a little scared.”

The MI player further talked about wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. He said that Pant is a person who makes him laugh a lot.

“The person who makes me laugh the most is Rishabh Pant. He is a crazy guy. I have been watching him since he was a kid and when he could not play for one and a half years because of that incident (accident) he Was disappointed.” And I'm glad he's back on the field, but he's quite funny and the kind of things he does behind the stumps make you laugh,” the 37-year-old said.

Finally, Rohit said that when he usually wants to laugh, he calls Pant and then he says something and then both of them laugh at it.

“He has his own way of doing things, which is what I like about him. Even when he was recovering from his injury and not playing, he was still at his best in making me laugh. When I really want to laugh, so I call him, he says something and we all laugh at it,” the right-handed batsman concluded.

In the last match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Rohit became the first Indian to hit 500 sixes in T20 cricket. The most number of sixes in T20 cricket is by West Indies legend Chris Gayle (1,056 sixes), followed by West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard (860 sixes), Andre Russell (678 sixes) and Colin Munro (548 sixes).
