Rohit Sharma was the talk of the town after scoring a 43-ball 118 against Sri Lanka in the second T20I and in the process, scored the fastest T20I century as he reached the three-figure mark off just 35 balls.

Just hours prior to the start of the match, TV host Gaurav Kapoor released the "Breakfast With Champions" episode featuring the Indian star, who opened up about a large part of his life.

One of the highlights of the episode was when Rohit narrated an incident from his childhood days when he was threatened by the police of putting him inside the jail for breaking windows in the neighbourhood while playing cricket.

"My family always liked cricket. In a day, if not for all the 24 hours, at least 16 hours we used to watch cricket. All my chachas (uncles) and buas (aunts) have played cricket, not at the highest level but in school and college. Of course (my uncles got involved in my game). When I used to play in our building, my chacha used to watch me from top, checking my batting. I have broken a lot of window glasses. There was a police complaint against me for breaking glasses. Once police came and threatened with putting me in jail if repeated. All the neighbours were troubled by us daily (breaking glasses). We were three to four of us who played cricket always. Later we used to go to grounds and play but we never completely let go of playing in our building. We never gave up on that," quipped Rohit.

Adding to this, the Hitman spoke about a lot of other different things, which include his first meeting with his wife Ritika, pranks played by the Indian cricketers, the day when he forgot his wedding ring in his hotel room, Sachin Tendulkar and more.
