We have seen several bonds from friendship to relationship, and many more in cinemas, films, and even in real life. And some of those bonds are unbreakable and eternal. Similarly, there is also one more bond – player and stadium. Yes, these both are unexplainable, and an athlete can only know and express his/her love for the ground. Every Indian cricketer has got their favorite hunting ground to play in. Some of them have even a huge story behind making the ground as their favorite one. Similarly, the vice-captain of the Indian team and the opening batsman, Rohit Sharma has his favorite hunting ground too. It’s none other than the Mecca of Indian cricket, Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Rohit Sharma’s love for Eden Garden can’t be explained, and there is a great history behind it too. The ground didn’t become his favorite all of a sudden. You need to know the history too, to know the bond. Rohit made his Test debut on November 7, 2013, and became the 14th Indian batsman to score a century in his first Test debut. You can consider Eden Garden as his lucky charm too. He has made several records in the ground. Rohit won two IPL trophies in 2013 and 2015 for Mumbai Indians (MI) at Eden Gardens itself.
Rohit’s love for the ground is so admirable. The bond is forever. He has made many memories in the Eden Gardens over all these years. His love for the ground will remain constant like his performance in the tournaments.
