Team India captain Rohit Sharma has hilariously imitated his teammates Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah at recently held Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) awards function last week.

Many current and former cricketers were awarded for their contribution to Indian cricket in various categories during the awards function in Hyderabad on Tuesday, January 23. Mohammed Shami, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah and Shubman Gill were awarded international cricketers of the year. Former Indian cricketers Ravi Shastri and Farooq Engineer were honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award.

In a video that went viral, Rohit Sharma can be seen imitating his teammates and their famous characteristics. He started off with his pull shot, followed Bumrah's bowling action and supla shot of Suryakumar Yadav. He hilariously intimated Virat Kohli's aggressive wicket celebration.

Then, Team India skipper managed to replicate MS Dhoni's iconic helicopter before he concluded with former India batting legend Sachin Tendulkar's upper cut.

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma is currently Team India in the first Test of the five-match series against England. The hosts bundled out England for 246 after Ben Stokes's 70 in the first innings. For India, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja scalped three wickets, while Jasprit Bumrah and Axar Patel picked two scalps each.

KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel put India in commanding position with a total of 421/7 on the board at the end of Day 2 of the first Test. Shreyas Iyer (35) and KS Bharat (41) too chipped in with their contributions.

Virat Kohli likely to feature in 3rd Test against England

Virat Kohli is expected to return to action for the third Test in the ongoing five-match series against England in Rajkot.

The former India captain withdrew from India squad for two Tests as he had to return home due to personal reason. But, Kohli joined the squad in Hyderabad before leaving for Ayodhya to attend Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha, headlined by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Royal Challengers Bangalore batter Rajat Patidar added to Test squad as a replacement for Virat Kohli for two Tests. Patidar was part of India A squad against England Lions in an unofficial Test, where he scored 151 in the first innings.

Virat Kohli made his return to T20I during the three-match series against Afghanistan this month. It was his first appearance in the shortest format since India's exit from T20 World Cup 2022 after losing semifinal to England in November 2022.
