Indian skipper Rohit Sharma recently appeared in Netflix’s The Great Indian Kapil Sharma Show where he revealed the name of two players he wouldn’t want to share a dressing room with.

Sharma, along with middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer appeared in the show where the two talked about the Indian team culture and habits of some players.

During the show, the 36-year-old stated that he would never share a room with Punjab Kings’ skipper Shikhar Dhawan and Delhi Capitals’ captain Rishabh Pant as the two sleep a lot.

"Everyone gets a single room nowadays. But if I get a chance to share a single room, there are two people with whom I wouldn't want to share rooms with - Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant. They are very messy. After practice, they just toss their clothes on the bed," Rohit said on The Great Indian Kapil Show.

Sharma then went on to state that both the players have their hotel rooms on Do Not Disturb (DND) mode as they sleep till late in the afternoon.

“Their room is always on DND because they sleep till 1 PM. The housekeeping staff that comes in the morning to clean their rooms, so it's important for them to put their rooms on DND. Otherwise, they will barge in. That's why their rooms often stay messy for three to four days. It becomes a problem for the people staying around them. So, I don't think I will be able to stay with them," he added.

The former Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper then talked about the 2023 World Cup where India lost the final to Australia after remaining unbeaten throughout the tournament.

"I was thinking that the World Cup took place in our country but still we couldn't win. I felt the nation might be angry with us. But I only heard people praising how well we played, and how they enjoyed watching that cricket," said Rohit.

Remember, Rohit Sharma is currently playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) side Mumbai Indians as a batter after losing his captaincy to Hardik Pandya.
