“I remember many things during Safari and we had lots of fun. But one incident that took place was Cheetah walking. So, we thought that cheetah walking meant that we would be walking behind 2-3 cheetahs but we were actually in the jungle and we didn’t know what was around us. And, the moment we reached there – me, Radhika (Rahane’s wife), Ritika (Rohit’s wife), Rohit and Jadeja – reached the centre of the jungle, there were two cheetahs who had just caught a prey. And when all of us reached there, they turned around and looked at us.”
Rohit Sharma and the lot got scared on the safari, as Ravindra Jadeja started to make noises to attract the wild cheetahs, which made the Team India opener sweat. And while he wanted to punch the Saurashtra cricketer, knowing Rohit Sharma, he chose to stay calm.
Adding on to the layers of the story, Rohit Sharma narrated, “It was because of Jadeja. He was making some weird noises and calling them. And we said, ‘What are you doing?! We are in a jungle. If the cheetahs see us, they will make us their prey. But it was the best experience of our lives.”
“The moment Jadeja started making noises, those cheetahs turned around to look at us. At that time, only I know what was going through my mind. I looked at Jadeja angrily and I felt like punching him but then I thought that it is necessary to stay calm now,” added Rohit Sharma.
