Not Done Hitman! Time For BCCI To Reprimand Rohit Severely

A legendary Indian cricketer had once said that the Indian Premier League (IPL) has become so lucrative, that cricketers will lose the drive to play for the country having already attained stardom courtesy the IPL.

The Rohit Sharma drama is actually a proof of the authentication in the statement, the former cricketer made. Time and again we have seen how the IPL gains precedence over international games much to our chagrin, but who listens?

The Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit aka Hitman, is injured and has been left out of the tour Down Under which could be a huge loss to Team India. Is there anybody who can replace Rohit in terms of class and acumen? Tough call, but what is really shocking is the high handedness of Rohit who took the field against Sunrisers Hyderabad despite catching an injury and that also in a dead rubber. Well, it may be exaggeration to many, but you can’t stop some from smelling a rat – Is Rohit simply trying to skip the tough series against one of the most formidable teams in the world – Australia?

What was the trigger? And how arrogant a star player can be despite knowing the fact that it’s international cricket that makes you a star? It also tantamounts to taking fans for a ride especially those who have lent them unflinching support come what may.

Well, eyebrows have already started raising and some former cricketers including Dilip Vengsarkar have taken offence to Rohit’s decision. Vengsarkar in an interview to The Times of India wonders if playing in the IPL is of paramount importance setting the country’s interests aside. This is like taking Indian cricket fans for granted. And nobody can dispute it.

So, will the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) take action against Rohit? It will be the ideal opportunity for the BCCI to show the world that when it comes to discipline a spade is always a spade. No one questions Rohit’s utility factor and as mentioned before, Rohit’s absence would matter against the Aussies who are craving with vengeance.

But having said that, such display of arrogance should never be tolerated. It is time for the BCCI to take an exemplary step which would send the right message that ‘Playing for India’ comes first and nothing else. We are watching.
