Rohit Sahrama message to followers on World Environment Day
In honor of World Environment Day, Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian cricket team, shared a meaningful message with his followers. The renowned batsman emphasized the importance of environmental conservation through actions such as reusing, reducing, and recycling. Despite his busy schedule, the 36-year-old took a moment to remind his supporters about the significance of individual contributions in protecting the environment.
On Monday, June 5th, Rohit Sharma took to his official Instagram account and posted a picture of himself wearing a white T-shirt adorned with the words 'End Plastic Waste.'
"The theme for this World Environment Day is #BeatPlasticPollution, a cause close to my heart & the need of the hour for our planet Earth. May this World Environment Day be a reminder to do our bit to keep the planet safe by reusing, reducing & recycling," the India skipper captioned the post.
Rohit gearing up for WTC Final
Rohit Sharma is preparing to lead the Indian cricket team against Australia in the much-anticipated WTC Final clash scheduled to commence on June 7th at The Oval in London. As the 36-year-old batter gears up for this crucial match, he has his sights set on securing an ICC trophy, which would be his first as a captain if India emerges victorious. While Rohit has previously led India to victory in the 2018 Asia Cup against Bangladesh, an ICC trophy has eluded him thus far.
Rohit played a pivotal role in India's triumph over Australia in the recent Border-Gavaskar Trophy held in India. This included a magnificent century, showcasing an average of 40.33 in the series.
