Indian cricket captain Rohit Sharma recently took a spiritual trip with his family to the renowned Tirupati Balaji Temple in Andhra Pradesh, following a successful Test and ODI series in the Caribbean. The images of his visit, along with his wife Ritika and daughter Samaira, instantly flooded social media platforms, showing the captain’s devotion despite the strict security.


Rohit is currently on a well-deserved break following a successful West Indies tour in which his captaincy in Tests and ODIs excelled. While he did not play in the T20I series, he is intensely preparing for the Asia Cup 2023 which starts on 30 August. This prestigious event, jointly hosted by Pakistan and Sri Lanka, is seen as a warm-up for the upcoming ICC ODI World Cup in October.

During his vacation, Rohit has consistently maintained his fitness, frequently uploading Instagram videos of his workouts. When a video surfaced of him gesturing at the fans during his visit to the Balaji temple, it was clear that he was committed to both his physical and spiritual health. This action showcased his devotion to both cricket and life beyond the boundary.

While a cricket visiting a spiritual place is not a new thing, a lot of cricket fans are comparing Rohit’s visit to Virat Kohli’s recent spiritual sojourns. Here are some reactions to Rohit’s visit to the Tirupati Balaji Temple.

Rohit’s desire to win the ODI World Cup is not a secret. Although he has participated in two previous seasons 2015 and 2019, he has not yet won the trophy. But now the cricketing world is anxiously waiting for Rohit’s performance in the Asia Cup and, subsequently, the World Cup, as he prays for divine intervention prior to the upcoming challenges. His determination is clearly visible as he prepares to lead the team in this prestigious event for the first time.
