As Team India are gearing up for the third and final T20I against West Indies, Rohit Sharma, on Saturday, took to Instagram to wish his wife Ritika Sajdeh on her birthday. While the India opener is one of the most devastating batsmen in the game right now, he once again showed his softer side with a very adorable post for his wife.
Rohit and Ritika’s love story is nothing less than a typical romantic movie. They had first met with each other as professionals. And six years after that meeting, they finally got hitched. Ritika was a sports event manager and used to take care of Rohit’s cricket engagements as his manager. However, they soon developed a strong friendship which later turned into courtship.
In a very romantic moment, Rohit had proposed Ritika for the wedding at the Borivali Sports Club, Mumbai. Ritika immediately had accepted the proposal. The two got engaged in June 2015 before getting married in December. Last year, the couple was blessed with their first child – a baby girl whom they named Samaira.
Talking about the birthday message from Rohit, the Mumbai Indians skipper took to Instagram to post an adorable picture of himself and Ritika and wrote: “Many many happy returns my love, strength and game changer. Samaira and I are proud to have such a leading light in our lives.”
A special gift from Rohit Sharma?
Well, Rohit Sharma can give his wife the perfect gift by helping India win the series against West Indies. The right-handed batsman had starred with the bat in the previous game. He slammed 159 as India crushed the visitors by 107 runs to draw level in the three-match series. Rohit’s knock helped India post a mammoth total of 387 for 5.
In reply, West Indies were all out for just 280 in the 44th over. Kuldeep Yadav starred with the ball by taking his second hat-trick in international cricket. With form on his side, Rohit Sharma will be looking to make the most it once again and propel India to a series win.
