“CM Eknath Shinde told me that such an event has never been organised in the Vidhan Bhavan complex. It was a dream come true to bring a cricket World Cup to India after 13 years of wait. It was a team effort. It was a solid team effort,” the Indian captain said.

Rohit further spoke about the spectacular catch taken by Suryakumar Yadav to dismiss David Miller which changed the course of the game. Cracking a joke at his Mumbai teammate, Rohit said if Surya had not taken the catch, he might have been out of the team in the coming games.

“After Surya caught the ball, he told me that the ball sat in his hand. Thank goodness, it sat in his hand. Otherwise, I would have sat him out,” Rohit said, leaving the assembly in splits.

Speaking in the assembly, Suryakumar said, “I am very happy to meet you all. I can never forget the kind of support we all received yesterday and today here at Vidhan Bhavan.”
