Pune: According to sources within the traffic department, Rohit Sharma, the captain of India’s cricket team, has received three traffic challans for driving at high speeds from Mumbai to Pune in his blue Lamborghini.
The flamboyant opener chose to make a grand entrance as he joined his team in Pune during the ongoing World Cup.
Traffic authorities have reported that Rohit Sharma, who is well-known for his love of speed, drove at astonishingly high speed on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, exceeding speeds of 200 km/h and even reaching 215 km/h at times.
These breakneck speeds resulted in three online traffic challans being issued to his vehicle. However, this act of recklessness on a busy highway during the World Cup has raised concerns among cricket enthusiasts and traffic officials.
A source from the Traffic Department commented that ‘the Indian captain, right in the middle of the World Cup, driving down on a highway is not advisable at all. He should be travelling in the team bus with a police car escorting it.’ Rohit Sharma is known for his love of speed and enjoys driving fast, a trait well-known among those who follow his career.
Nevertheless, during the World Cup, such high-speed highway driving leaves fans apprehensive about their captain’s safety. What adds a unique touch to the high-speed journey is Rohit’s choice of a number plate for his Lamborghini, bearing his highest score in one-day cricket, underlining his passion for the sport.
Despite the high-speed journey, Rohit Sharma’s cricketing prowess remains unquestionable.
The smashing opener recently displayed a return to form with a century against Afghanistan and a swashbuckling 86 against Pakistan, instilling confidence in Indian cricket fans as they continue to cheer for their captain and the national team in the ongoing World Cup.
