MI vs RCB IPL 2024: Rohit Sharma, by now, has championed his stump mic game. On April 11, as Mumbai Indians (MI) bowlers were getting hammered by Dinesh Karthik, the ‘hitman’ teased the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) batter in his signature style.

DK was at his best, hitting the ball all around the park. He hit five 4s and four 6s to reach his 50 in 22 balls. During his innings, Rohit Sharma was fielding in the slip position.

As Dinesh kept clearing the fence, Rohit Sharma came clapping towards him and said, “World Cup ke selection ke liye push karna hai isko, shabash! Dimaag me chal raha hai iske World Cup." (He’s pushing for World Cup selection. He has the World Cup selection in his mind).

Ishan Kishan, who was keeping wickets, smiled as Rohit kept clapping for DK and teased him. While the RCB batter said nothing, Rohit kept laughing while returning to his fielding position.
