Before the start of the ICC World Cup, a conference of the captains of all the cricket teams was held to let media interact with them.
During the session, an Indian journalist asked Rohit Sharma about England being declared successful in the final of the last World Cup, a match which first got tied, led to a super over, then got tied again. The journalist asked if both teams could have been declared joint winners.
At this question, Rohit Sharma said “What is the question, my friend, how should I answer it?”
People present at the conference includinb Pakistan team captain Babar Azam also laughed at Rohit Sharma’s reply.
England captain Jos Buttler, who was sitting with Babar Azam, looked at Babar in a questioning manner and inquired about the meaning of Rohit’s words, on which Babar Azam translated what Rohit said to the Journalist.
Most of the questions were directed towards Babar Azam and Rohit Sharma.
At one point in the press conference, South African captain Temba Bavuma was seen sleeping, which he later denied and said that the camera angle was such that it looked like he was sleeping, but he was not.
