Indian limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma had been in sublime form over the last few years. Currently ranked number two in the ICC ODI rankings, he had been on par with Indian captain Virat Kohli in terms of white-ball performance in the last couple of years. Currently sitting idle at home due to the restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 he took to Twitter to answer some of the questions from his beloved fans.
Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma is highly regarded by many as the true successor of MS Dhoni in terms of captaincy considering his success in the IPL for Mumbai and taking into account his calm nature on the field. Even the CSK vice-captain and a close friend of MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina publically gave such a remark on Rohit. But during his latest Twitter Q&A session, he dismissed those comparisons and opined that no one can ever replace MS Dhoni and added that those kinds of comparisons are pointless.
While answering to a question posted by one of his fans, he named his favourite moment with MS Dhoni. It was none other than the match in which he scored his first ODI double hundred, Dhoni was at the non-striker’s end during that time and both of them had a long-standing partnership. He also praised Dhoni for giving him valuable advice whenever needed.

The one number that the fans associate with Rohit Sharma the most is 45, his Jersey number. One of his fans asked him to describe the reason behind choosing that number.
Rohit answered that it was just a random number chosen by his mother. He added that he was not at all superstitious but his mother wanted him to wear that number as she felt it might bring him good luck, and hence he chose that.
