He may have missed the first two Tests of the ongoing series in Sri Lanka, but there is no stopping Rohit Sharma when it comes to getting the better of his teammates.

A few of the Indian cricket team players had caught up with the famous Indian wrestler in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), The Great Khali, after their victory over Sri Lanka in the second Test at Colombo last week.

India hammered Sri Lanka by an innings and 53 runs in the second Test inside four days to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the ongoing three-match series.

Some of the team members, such as KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Shikhar Dhawan and captain Virat Kohli posted a picture of their meeting with arguably the most successful Indian wrestler in WWE, Dalip Singh Rana or The Great Khali, in Sri Lanka.

But on Wednesday, Rohit posted a picture of himself with a dummy of the WWE championship belt, saying that even though his teammates tried their best, it is he who has the prized possession.

The belt, which Rohit can be seen holding the photograph that he shared, is a specially designed belt which was sent by WWE to his Indian Premier League (IPL) side Mumbai Indians.

The Indian players have enjoyed a brief period of relaxation in Sri Lanka after sealing a series victory. The third and final Test of the series begins August 12 at Pallekele.
