They say there are seven people in the world who look a lot like you. Also, since it is rare, we can meet you at any time. However, Pakistani fans seem to have found a look-alike of India’s deputy captain Rohit Sharma. Just as Indians are passionate about cricket, their rivals are not far behind in this regard. Cricket is also a religion in Pakistan.
The fans there were looking forward to catching some cricket action for what was supposed to be the white ball series against New Zealand. But instead, it was only disappointing for Pakistani fans as the Blackcaps returned home without playing the game, primarily because of security.
Over the years, the internet has helped find a lot of celebrity-lookalikes and the latest in the list is a doppelganger of Indian cricket star Rohit Sharma. And guess where? In Pakistan! A picture of a man enjoying a glass of sharbat in Pakistan’s Rawalpindi has surfaced on the internet and many are convinced that he looks like cricketer Rohit Sharma.

Mumbai Indians struggling with IPL UAE leg
As for the IPL UAE leg, MI lost three bounce games and fell to seventh place on the point table. This is the first time since 2018 that five IPL champions have lost three bounce games. Skipper Rohit Sharma, who keeps an eye on the captain’s movements, struggles to get the performance in bulk from the unit.
He has made a start in all three games, but one big elusive score hasn’t come from Hitman’s blade yet. Still, not all MI is lost because four games haven’t been played yet. Currently, they have 8 points and can shoot in the playoffs even if they win the remaining four games.
