New Delhi: The hectic schedule of the Indian Premier League takes a toll on players and sometimes the players have to take a short break to recharge their batteries. Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma did something similar and opted to play Table Tennis with his wife to unwind himself ahead of the blockbuster clash against Rising Pune Supergiant on Monday.
Mumbai are currently on top of the IPL table, have won six out of seven matches played in the league so far. MI have converted the Wankhede Stadium as their fortress and their latest victory over Delhi Daredevils was their fourth win in as many matches at home. Rohit hasn't lit up the tournament with his bat so far but he has been very successful as captain.
The Mumbai star opted to try his hand at TT with his wife Ritika Sajdeh to take some time off cricket. In a video posted by Rohit on social media, the couple are seen enjoying their time by playing a soft 'rally'.
However, competitive spirit got the better of Rohit and he hit a smash to end the game. The Mumbai skipper burst into laughter after hitting the winning point courtesy of his 'fierce' hit. The best part about Rohit's video was his caption though, which read: Schooling the wife at TT @ritssajdeh

Rohit and his troops will look to extend their lead at the top of the pile when they take on Steven Smith's Pune in the Maharashtra Derby at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday.
But it won't be an easy task by an means, as after MS Dhoni's match-winning knock in their last match, RPS will be confident of becoming the first team to beat Mumbai on their home ground in the tenth edition of the league.
