LONDON: One of the leading betting website trolled Indian opener Rohit Sharma over his remarks on Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir.
Bet365, in its Twitter post, reminded cricketing fans that Rohit Sharma had termed Mohammad Amir as an “overhyped” and an “ordinary bowler” back in 2016.
They stated that Amir dismissed Rohit Sharma for a duck, sent Virat Kohli to the pavilion for five runs and removed Dhawan after he made 23 runs in the final of ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
