Mistake while taking trophy
It so happened that as soon as Rohit Sharma started taking the trophy from Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association officials Abhilash Khandekar and Pawan Jain, the huge trophy tilted towards Rohit. Rohit immediately swung into action and saved his mouth, otherwise he could have been hurt by its corners. After taking this trophy, Rohit went to the team mates and started celebrating. He handed over the trophy to the young players of the team.
