Why did Rohit Sharma pick up Barbados pitch soil after T20 World Cup Win?

After India’s victory in the T20 World Cup final against South Africa, Rohit Sharma celebrated in memorable ways. He first lay on the ground, pounding it in joy to mark the end of a 13-year wait for India to become champions again. Following celebrations with teammates, he quietly went to the pitch’s center, took a piece of soil, and put it in his mouth, repeating the gesture.

A few days later, Rohit explained why he did this unusual act, reminiscent of tennis star Novak Djokovic. He shared that he wanted to keep a part of the pitch with him because it was where India achieved their historic win. In a video posted by BCCI, Rohit expressed, “I felt a connection to that pitch because it’s where we played and won the game. It’s a place and a moment I’ll always remember in my life. I wanted something from there to hold onto, to remember where our dreams came true. That’s why I did it.”

Rohit’s gesture symbolized his deep connection to the ground where India’s victory was sealed, making the moment even more special for him.
