‘We are not lucky as you guys’ – Rohit Sharma to Brett Lee
In a Star Sports Cricket Connected live show, during talking to Australian former pacer Brett Lee, Rohit Sharma said that he doesn’t have big enough house to play indoor cricket as they can.
He said that Mumbai is very crowded and costly place where they have to live in a congenial space. The Indian opener expressed grief about the fact that he is not lucky enough like Brett Lee where he can get enough place to play indoor cricket.
Due to lockdown imposed by Indian government, all the players are at home. Players are under lockdown compelled by the coronavirus pandemic. It’s hard for a cricketer to stay away from cricket and pass their time, doing nothing. Rohit Sharma too agreed that they are going through a repellent time schedule and not lucky enough to play inside the house as the Australian can do.
“I wish I had enough place to play indoor cricket, but unfortunately in Mumbai, the place is very secluded, and you have to stick to your apartment. We are not lucky as you guys where you have your own backyard to play,”
Rohit said while speaking to former Australian pacer Brett Lee on Star Sports Cricket Connected show.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma said that although he doesn’t have any big space to continue indoor cricket but have a balcony where he can exercise as his trainer said. He hopes to start the gym and other sports association will come to light live very soon. “In Mumbai, it’s very expensive to get your own house where you have your own backyard. I live in an apartment and I am lucky to have a little balcony where I can run around and do some activities that my trainer has given me. I am trying to follow whatever little I can. Hopefully, the gyms will open soon, and I can go there,” he added.
COVID-19 outbreak has brought things far worse for cricket associations as well as for the boards. Every single sporting event has been postponed for an indefinite time until the situation gets a normal atmosphere. Unfortunately, there is no specific confirmation when the sports will mark its return to normal pace. Recently, Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 has postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
