Rohit Sharma Takes On Steady Hand Challenge

The Indian Cricket Team will be kicking off their World Cup campaign with two warm-up games - first against New Zealand on Saturday followed by a fixture against Bangladesh on Tuesday.

While completing media commitments of the tournament, India's vice-captain Rohit Sharma took some time out and had a go at the 'Steady Hand Challenge'. The Board Of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video clip of the same on Twitter.

While the opener came really close, he failed to complete the challenge.

Rohit has been on a high, coming back of a successful campaign in the Indian Premier League where he led Mumbai Indians to their fourth title.

With flat pitches on offer during the upcoming competition, the three-time ODI double centurion will be a force to reckon with for the oppositions.

In the previous World Cup, Rohit Sharma hit a spectacular 137 to guide India towards a victory in the quarter-final against Bangladesh.

The Indian opener had earlier stated that winning the World Cup was the ultimate dream. No doubt he would be putting his best foot forward as the tournament begins.
