Rohit Sharma gave a hilarious reply on Team India's bowling combination at the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 during a BCCI press conference on Thursday, saying, "Abhi main bolke kya karunga? (What is the use of telling it now)". 

Addressing a press conference with BCCI's chief selector Ajit Agarkar on the Team India squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, Rohit was asked about who will open bowling with star pacer Jasprit Bumrah.

"Paanch taarikh ko match hai, abhi main bolke kya karunga? We'll see. We'll see. Combination kyun jaanna hai aapko," he replied.

Rohit, on leading India after losing IPL captaincy, said that it is part of life.
