In early 2023, Rohit Sharma deleted Instagram and X (formerly Twitter) from his phone
In an interview with The Indian Express, Rohit Sharma revealed that he’s kept away from social media platforms, including Instagram and X, for nine months to maintain his focus on the World Cup. He credited his wife, Ritika Sajdeh, for handling all the content on his profile during this time.
“I don’t have Twitter or Instagram on my phone for the past 9 months – if we have to do any commercial post, my wife handles it – these are distractions – it’s waste of time & energy – so I have decided not to have it on my phone because if it’s there – I will watch it,” said Sharma.
Rohit Sharma is scheduled to address the media during the captains’ meet event in Ahmedabad, and the live streaming of the event can be watched on Star Sports’ YouTube channel.
