Bhogle welcomed Rohit to the center “It was a great day for Rohit Sharma. Rohit, come on, everything happened for you today. 150th game as captain, 190th for MI and 36th birthday.”

Rohit quickly joked, “35th, not 36th.”

Bhogle, who fell in love with the opener, said with utmost sincerity: “Ah, they gave me one more. Good correction.”

After which, Rohit revealed that he was joking and that Bhogle had actually reached his age at 36.

Bhogle, in trademark fashion, replied “When you get to my age, it doesn’t matter”.
