Indian fans living in USA rarely get to witness their favourite stars up close and personal. Skipper Rohit Sharma turned that rare opportunity a special one for them by meeting them in person while rallying around the ground in Lauderhill on Saturday (August 6).
Rohit made the day for a huge section of the Indian fans present at the ground in Florida for the fourth T20I against the West Indies by shaking their hands and thanking them for their support following his team's victory.
As India sealed the five-match series with a 3-1 unassailable scoreline, the Indian captain made a point to go up to the fans based in USA and express his gratitude for coming in large numbers despite a very early morning start to the game.
To suit the audiences based in India, the match was scheduled to begin as early as 10:30 AM local time, which, however, was no hurdle to the passionate fans present in Miami and around the USA as they filled the stands and cheered for Rohit Sharma & company.
