India tour of England: Watch Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane’s ‘Baby’s day out’ in UK: After an unwanted end to the World Test Championship Final where Team India lost against New Zealand by eight wickets, Indian cricketers have resorted to spending quality family time to dust off the past and start afresh for the upcoming 5-match Test series against England overseas. Recently, Rohit Sharma’s wife Ritika Sajdeh shared glimpses of ‘Baby’s day out’ on her Instagram story that featured their daughter having a playful time with Ajinkya Rahane’s little one.
In a picturesque landscape, the daughters of the two Indian cricketers are having a time of their life- running in all happiness and cherishing the moment. Set aside near a lake, the two families are relishing time in the lap of nature.
This is not the first time that the families of the two players are spending time with each other. Not days ago, the Indian Test team’s vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane and opening batsman Rohit Sharma were also spotted posing in a frame supposedly after their children enjoyed rides in the amusement park.
