During his innings, the 31-year-old displayed his presence of mind by evading a possible stumping. On seeing the batsman come down the track, K Gowtham darted the ball down the legside. However, Rohit was quick to sort his feet out and kicked the ball away with his front leg.
Twitter was quite impressed by his skills:
Hah! Rohit Sharma with a peak gully cricket moment. Good stuff.

Rohit Sharma showing his #Football skills. May be this is why #TeamIndia warms up playing football. 😉 #Hitman #RohitSharma #MIvRR pic.twitter.com/yZGOvg8Bs5 — Prabhu (@Cricprabhu) April 13, 2019
Actually so clever from Rohit Sharma😂. He knows he’s about to miss that completely to get stumped so he sticks out his leg. The presence of mind on this one 👌🏾👌🏾, One of the bizzare things you’ll ever see 😂😂😂😂 #MIvRR #VIVOIPL pic.twitter.com/jofuZrNLJY — Naveen (@ImNsamy) April 13, 2019
Rohit using his 'body' to hit the ball. Apt. #IPL2019
