Indian batsman Rohit Sharma almost missed the plane to the UK, his teammate Dinesh Karthik has revealed.

In a fun chat with Gaurav Kapoor-hosted Breakfast with Champions, Karthik narrated what really happened after Team India assembled in Delhi before leaving for tours of Ireland and England.

“We all assembled in Delhi and were supposed to leave for UK. Our man [Rohit] came chilled, having forgotten his passport back in Mumbai. It got delivered to him just in time, else he would’ve been left behind,” the wicketkeeper-batsman said.

Rohit, however, interrupted saying that he’s not the only one to forgets things back home.

“Everyone forgets their passport but these guys just make stories about me,” the opening batsman said in his defence

Leg-pulling stuff apart, Karthik said he shares great bond with Rohit. “We’ve had some great times together. We tend to give each other the choicest abuses, making people around us wonder what’s wrong.

“But Rohit is a great guy and I love hanging out with him,” he said.

Meanwhile, India have started off with a bang, having won both the T20 Internationals against Ireland. The visitors are also 1-0 up against England in the three-match T20 series.
