Well, the 35-year-old was miffed with the broadcaster for putting his century in the context of it being his first such score in three years as he contested that made it the gap look longer than it actually is.

Before Indore, Rohit’s last century was against Australia in 2020 in Bengaluru. And since that, he went 16 innings without registering a three-figure score.

“Regarding the first hundred in three years, I’ve played only 12 (17) ODIs in three years. Three years sounds a lot,” Rohit said after the match.

He continued, “You guys should know what’s happening. I know that it was shown on broadcast but sometimes woh cheez bhi dhyan dena chahiye, broadcaster ko bhi sahi cheez dikhana chahiye (the broadcasters should give the correct picture).”

Of course, 2020 was the year when the world began it’s fight against coronavirus pandemic that upended the cricket calendar as well. India would play just three ODIs during the year – all before the onset of the pandemic.

“As I said, there were no matches in 2020,” Rohit said.

“Everyone was sitting at home because of COVID-19. We hardly played ODIs, I was injured so I played two Tests during that time, so you have to put all of that in perspective,” he added.
