Dubai: Rohit Sharma is surely getting into the groove for the IPL, which begins in 10 days’ time in the UAE.
During a practice session under lights, the Mumbai Indians captain – who has earned the nickname ‘Hitman’ — Rohit launched into a shot that cleared the stadium and crashed into a moving bus outside the stadium.
Mumbai Indians shared the video in which Rohit is seen hitting a 95-metre six and then celebrating with a raised hand.
“Batsmen smash sixes, Legends clear the stadium, Hitman smashes a six + clears the stadium + hits a moving bus,” Mumbai Indians wrote along with the video.
