Not long ago, Rohit Sharma has helped a Sri Lankan fan with tickets to fly to the island nation so that the latter can attend to his ailing father. It happened during the Sri Lanka tour of India last year when Rohit was leading the limited-overs team in absence of rested Virat Kohli.

And the same Sri Lankan fans repaid the generosity by supporting India and waving the tri-colour when India defeated Bangladesh in the Nidahas Trophy final. Rohit Sharma responded by waving the Sri Lankan flag during the victory march much to the delight of home fans.
Rohit Sharma has again won hearts with his selfless attitude and keeping India ahead of personal fame during the fourth ODI at Mumbai where he scored a match-winning 162. It also happened to be Rohit Sharma’s home ground and it was a double treat for the fans who saw their hero crack another brilliant ton. In fact, fans lamented Rohit missing out on a fourth double ton as he had enough overs to reach the milestone.
But what Rohit Sharma did next leave fans more proud of their hero.
Fresh from his heroics with the bat, Rohit Sharma was fielding in the deep and being his home ground, it was obvious fans will root for him and cheer for him whenever they spot him near the boundary line. It was not different this time itself, except for a Rohit Sharma’s gesture that made fans gush with more love and pride for him.
When fans were cheering for Rohit, shouting out aloud, Rohit! Rohit! Rohit!, the Indian opener turned back and pointed the name India on the front of his jersey and indicated fans to cheer for their motherland.
The fans got the clue from Rohit and immediately started cheering for India. A fan recorded this video and shared on the social media. And the video has gone viral. The selfless Rohit Sharma this time wins hearts with his patriotism.
