Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian Cricket Team, is said to have been issued three traffic fines for speeding on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway while he was en route to Pune to join the Indian team for their upcoming match against Bangladesh on October 19.
The incident occurred as Rohit Sharma was en route to join the Indian team in Pune for their upcoming match against Bangladesh.
It’s worth mentioning that India has emerged victories in their initial three matches of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 against Australia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Reports indicate that Sharma was driving at speeds over 200 km/h, leading to the issuance of three online traffic fines for his reckless driving.
As per a Pune Mirror report, a member of the traffic department raised concerns about the Indian captain’s dangerous driving on a crowded highway during the World Cup. The suggestion was made that he should travel with the team in their bus, accompanied by a police escort.
The report also mentioned that the Indian skipper was driving a Lamborghini displaying a number plate featuring his highest ODI score, which is ‘264.’ In the ongoing World Cup, the 36-year-old has been in outstanding form, emerging as India’s leading run-scorer.
Sharma has accumulated 217 runs from three innings, maintaining an impressive average of 72.33 and a strike rate of 141.83. He has recorded one century and one half-century in these innings.

In the second match against Afghanistan, Rohit Sharma played an incredible innings, scoring 131 runs off 84 balls and setting numerous records. He achieved the fastest century by an Indian in World Cup history (in just 63 balls), broke the record for the most sixes in international cricket (562).
He secured the most hundreds in ODI World Cup history (7 centuries), reached 1000 runs in ODI World Cups in the joint-fastest time (19 innings), and earned the distinction of having the third-most centuries in ODIs (31 centuries).
After that, the Indian captain delivered another remarkable performance, scoring 86 runs from 63 balls in the match against arch-rivals Pakistan, leading India to a seven-wicket victory.
Sharma aims to replicate this exceptional performance in the upcoming game against Bangladesh and contribute to his team’s pursuit of a fourth consecutive win.
