Rohit Sharma fined by traffic police for driving 200 KMPH+ from Mumbai to Pune ahead of IND vs BAN CWC 2023 clash

Indian captain Rohit Sharma was travelling to Pune via Mumbai-Pune Expressway.

Indian captain Rohit Sharma has been in red-hot form in ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 and has played two back-to-back magnificent knocks to power India in an unbeaten run so far. He is making runs at a bullet speed and his strike rate in three innings read above 141 in three innings. Rohit is not only scoring runs at bullet speed but he is now caught speeding while driving his car on the Mumbai-Pune expressway and received three challans in a day. 

Rohit got challan thrice for over speeding

According to sources in the traffic department, Rohit Sharma has been fined thrice for over speeding on the Mumbai-Pune expressway. Rohit was found speeding above 200 KMPH and on a few occasions at 215 KMPH while travelling to Pune to join the Indian team camp. The traffic department has issued challans against Rohit Sharma for reckless driving in the Expressway. This incident generated a genuine concern about the safety of the Indian captain who was over speeding. 

Rohit Sharma was travelling in his lamborghini to Pune. Sources in the traffic department have shown concern over Rohit Sharma’s reckless driving and travelling to Pune in his car. Rohit should be travelling on a team bus during the big World Cup event. This incident has also raised a little concern among Indian fans as they want this to be a bit casual from their captain during a big event happening in India. 

Rohit going McCullum way?

Indian captain Rohit Sharma had a poor start to the tournament as he was dismissed on a duck against Australia. In the next innings against Afghanistan in Delhi, Rohit smashed the fastest century by an Indian in the World Cup tournament. Rohit smashed a century in just 63 balls. Against Pakistan, he kept his assault going and smashed 86 runs in 63 balls with 6 fours and 6 sixes. Rohit Sharma has adopted Brendon McCullum’s 2015 World Cup model in his batting.

Team India will be playing against Bangladesh at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Thursday. Team India have won all of their three league games so far. India defeated Australia in their opening game in Chennai, Afghanistan in their second game in Delhi and arch-rivals Pakistan in third league game in Ahmedabad. Team India had a day off on Monday to celebrate the win against Pakistan and prepare for the games coming ahead.
