Mumbai Indians, the most successful team in the history of the Indian Premier League, has always had a strong batting lineup. Over the years, the team has boasted some of the best batsmen in the world, and the current squad is no different.
Pragyan Ojha, a current member of the IPL governing committee and a former left-arm spinner for India, remembered one of his first meetings with Rohit Sharma. According to Pragyan Ojha, Rohit Sharma became upset as he talked about his upbringing and how he once delivered milk packages to pay for cricket equipment. Additionally, Ojha disclosed that he had first encountered Rohit at a national U-15 programme. The left-arm spinner remembered how the leaders of the Mumbai Indians were frequently praised for their ability.
Former India left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha remembered one of his early conversations with Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma in an interview with Jio Cinema. Rohit used to transport milk cartons to pay for his cricket equipment, according to Ojha. Ojha also discloses that the Mumbai local broke down in tears as he spoke about his difficult childhood.
“He was from a middle-class family and I remember he once got emotional when we discussed how his budget for cricket kits was restricted. In fact, he also delivered milk packets – of course that was really a long time ago – so that he could buy his kit. Now when I see him, I feel very proud of how our journey started and where we reached,” said Ojha.
