WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair says Rohit Sharma copied his walk to receive T20 World Cup trophy | New Zealand in India 2016 News

Rohit Sharma‘s unique walk to receive the T20 World Cup trophy became the talk of the town amid the euphoria of India’s triumph, with video clips from the trophy presentation ceremony on social media showing Kuldeep Yadav planning the move and demonstrating to Rohit how to pull it off. But WWE star Ric Flair disagrees.
“.@ImRo45 Taking A Page Out Of My Playbook! WOOOOO!” tweeted Flair, who used to approach the WWE ring with his iconic strut, and Rohit’s approach to the stage strongly resembled that.India defeated South Africa by seven runs in the T20 World Cup final on June 29 at the Kensington Oval in Barbados to become the T20 world champions for the second time, having previously won the title in the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2007.

At 37 years of age, Rohit became the oldest captain to win the T20 World Cup and the second Indian captain after MS Dhoni to achieve the feat.
The win also ended India’s 11-year wait for another ICC trophy, having last won the Champions Trophy in 2013.
India stayed unbeaten throughout the tournament, creating a joint record for most consecutive wins in a single edition, with South Africa also staying unbeaten for eight matches before losing the final. India could have won nine games, but their group-stage match against minnows Canada was washed out.

India’s Arshdeep Singh ended up as the joint highest wicket-taker in the tournament, taking 17 scalps — the same as Afghanistan’s Fazalhaq Farooqi. However, India’s bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah bagged the ‘Player of the Tournament’ award for his game-changing performances throughout the event. Bumrah took 15 wickets.
