IPL 2024: SRH deletes Rohit Sharma’s viral flying kiss pic

IPL 2024: SRH deletes Rohit Sharma’s viral flying kiss pic

A humorous moment took place ahead of Wednesday, March 27, the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match between the Mumbai Indians (MI) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The incident caused quite a sensation when Mumbai’s former captain Rohit Sharma gave SRH opener Mayank Agarwal a viral “flying kiss” during the teams’ practice.

The humorous gesture brought to recall a previous incident involving bowler Harshit Rana of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), who, after dismissing Mayank Agarwal during Hyderabad’s opening match at Eden Gardens in Kolkata, gave him a similar send-off.

Rohit, who is well-known for his clever sense of humour, made the decision to replicate the “flying kiss” scenario with the Karnataka-born person during the practice session. Agarwal erupted into laughter as Sharma reenacted the scene. Initially, the SRH team captioned the photo they uploaded on social media with “Flying kisses and friendly rivalries.” But the post was taken off from their timelines a few minutes later.

Cricketing greats, such as seasoned player Sunil Gavaskar, criticized the KKR bowler for his celebration, calling such “antics” on the field unacceptable.

Gavaskar stated, as cited by The Times of India, “That was a bad thing for him to do. When he started hitting him for sixes, did the batsman do anything to help him? These kinds of antics are not necessary to play cricket. This is the television era. I recognize that. Enjoy your victories with your teammates, but don’t bother putting on a show for the opponent.”

Hyderabad and Mumbai are both coming off losses in their season openers. Before they return home for their next games, the five-time champions will try to start winning. In the thrilling match, the 2016 champions will bet on themselves to win at home.
