IND vs SA – In the Visakhapatnam Test between India and South Africa, Rohit Sharma is passing the ‘Test’ of the opening with good numbers. Rohit, who got off to open for the first time in a Test match, has given a strong start to Team India with his partner Manyak. Starting from the innings, Rohit completed the half-century in 84 balls with four boundaries, while facing 154 balls for the century. Let us know that Rohit has been opening in ODIs and T20s, but this is the first time he has got the responsibility of the Test opener.
Test century after two years – IND vs SA
Looking at Rohit’s Test career, he made a brilliant debut against the West Indies in 2013 with a century, but after that, he had to struggle to maintain his place. In this match, when he got the opportunity to open, he proved a century in 154 balls, proving that the team management can trust him in this position. If seen, Rohit, who has opened in ODIs and International T20, has scored a century after two years in the Test with the bat. He had earlier played an unbeaten 102-run innings against Sri Lanka in Nagpur in November 2017.
Account opened with fours – IND vs SA
Rohit Sharma, popularly known as Hitman among the fans, also started his innings in ODI and T20 style. He opened the account on the second ball of the second over, hitting Kagiso Rabada at the backward point. This was the second ball for Rohit in the match. Earlier, Manik Agarwal opened his account of India by keeping Vernon Philander in the square.
