It is not always true that your first impression of someone will always be correct. India’s limited overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma, who recently led Indian team in the absence of Virat Kohli, revealed in a talk show that his first meeting with Yuvraj Singh left him with a bad taste in the mouth.
Rohit said in the talk show Breakfast with Champions hosted by Gaurav Kapur, “I used to fear the players. The first time when I was to board the team bus with other players, I reached the lobby one hour earlier. I was waiting for everyone. They came slowly but Yuvraj was looking different from far sight. I was a big fan of Yuvi.”
Rohit also talked about the time when Yuvraj had questioned him after he had apparently taken his preferred place in the team bus. Yuvraj had asked him if he knew whose place he had taken. This would have surely given Rohit an impression of rude and arrogant Yuvraj; which we know isn’t correct.
Even Rohit’s congratulations to the veteran cricketer had got a ‘Thank You!’ in a different tone. However, the game against England in 2007 World Cup T20 turned out to be the start of a long friendship.
