Rohit Sharma’s school coach Dinesh Lad has opened up about the batsman, sharing some interesting things we all wanted to know. The coach at Swami Vivekanand International School, Borivali, Lad said: “Since Dhoni promoted him to open the innings and he became successful from there, it seems like he wants to gift him the Cup as it is his (Dhoni’s) last World Cup.”

Talking about the role of his family, he said: “Wife (Ritika Sajdeh) has been lucky for him and he has become more responsible especially after his daughter was born. He has himself said it and it has translated into his batting. He is keen to stay at the wicket more and during the ongoing World Cup, he has been just dismissed twice early against Afghanistan and West Indies. In other seven games, he scored at least a half century.”

The coach also added: “Rohit was unhappy for not making it to the 2011 World Cup squad. I had told him then that he was giving less time to cricket and that as soon as he started paying more attention to the game, he would be one of the best in the business.” Well, the coach knows his students the best doesn’t he?
