Mumbaikar’s next assignment for India is in July against West Indies

After a tiring and lengthy cricket season, Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma is finally off to a honeymoon trip with his wife Ritika Sajdeh. The couple tied the knot in December last year and interestingly, this happens to be their second honeymoon after they went on one only after a few days of marriage.

The Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper took to social media and announced it by uploading a picture while they were travelling. They are expected to visit some popular cities of Europe and started their excursion with their initial stopover as Rome.

The Indian opener was thoroughly impressed by the services provided by the airline staff and tweeted about his soothing experience despite long flying hours. 

The dashing Indian batsman has been busy since January 2016 as India was constantly playing cricket both at home and away. The Indian team was engaged in a hectic schedule with five One-Day Internationals (ODI) in Australia followed by three Twenty-Twenty Internationals (T20Is) games. They further played a three-match home T20 series against Sri Lanka before touring Bangladesh for the Asia Cup.

There was literally no breathing space for the players as they had to then prepare for the T20 World Cup. After the conclusion of World T20 2016 in March, the players received only a meagre break as the tournament was followed by the ninth season of the Indian Premier League.

Rohit Sharma led the Mumbai Indians in the tournament but failed to earn a berth in the playoffs although he was the sixth leading run-getter of the tournament, scoring a total of 489 runs in 14 innings. Though MI failed to defend their title, he was praised for his captaincy by their head coach, Ricky Ponting and other teammates.

The right-hander has been rested along with other regular senior members of the team for India’s upcoming tour of Zimbabwe. A significantly young Indian team led by experienced limited overs captain, MS Dhoni, is scheduled to play three One-day internationals followed by three  T20Is.

The next assignment for the Mumbaikar will be on India’s tour of West Indies, where they are scheduled to play four Test matches. India’s quest to conquer the West Indian islands will kick off with a couple of practice games starting from July 9, 2016.

With a considerable amount of time before his next task, the world record holder of highest individual score in an ODI (264 runs), is expected to freshen up and get ready to assist his country in reaching the number one spot again.
