India wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has revealed that opening batsman Rohit Sharma nearly missed the flight to England since he forgot his passport.
Karthik and Rohit are both part of India’s limited overs squad for the ongoing tour of England.
While Rohit featured in the first two Twenty20 Internationals against England, Karthik only played in second Twenty20 International against Ireland.
“We all assembled in Delhi and were supposed to leave for UK,” Karthik said on the Breakfast with Champions show as quoted by the Deccan Chronicle. “Our man (Rohit) came chilled, having forgotten his passport back in Mumbai. It got delivered to him just in time, else he would’ve been left behind.”
Speaking about the incident, Rohit said: “Everyone forgets their passport but these guys just make stories about me.”
When asked about his friendship with Rohit, Karthik said: “We’ve had some great times together. We tend to give each other the choicest abuses, making people around us wonder what’s wrong. But Rohit’s a great guy and I love hanging out with him.”
