#VizagTest : Rohit steals show with maiden century as opener

Published

on

Visakhapatnam, 02 Oct : The class has been stamped in the maiden appearance itself and it will now be all about building from here on as Rohit Sharma drove, cut and flicked his way to his maiden hundred as an opener in the second session of the first Test between India and South Africa at the ACA-VDCA Stadium on Wednesday.

Starting the session at 91/0, the Indian openers put on 111 runs in the post-lunch session when umpires called for an early break owing to bad light. While Rohit was batting on 115, Mayank Agarwal was unbeaten on 84 as the South Africa bowlers had no answer to the quality batting on display.

The second session was once again dominated by the Indians, but primarily by India’s new opener — Rohit. Rising to the challenge handed to him by the team management, Rohit stole the show as his cautious approach was overtaken by the free flowing batsmen one is used to seeing in the limited-overs format in the second session.

Brief Scores: India: 202/0 (Rohit 115, Mayank 84) vs South Africa

New Delhi, 2 Oct : Former India skipper Kapil Dev has resigned from his post as the head of the three-member ad-hoc Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). Speaking to, sources in the know of developments said that Kapil has resigned from the position. “Yes, he has sent his resignation from the position of CAC chief.”

“There should have ideally been an official announcement from the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that the committee is disbanded since Vinod Rai has been vocal about the fact that it was an appointment done only for the selection of the head coach of the Indian team. “Maybe in that case, the embarrassment that the legends are facing the conflict notice could have been avoided,” the source added.

The former Indian captain’s decision to resign from the CAC comes after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Ethics Officer D.K. Jain sent a notice to the panel comprising of Kapil, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy with regards to allegations of conflict of interest as claimed by MPCA life member Sanjeev Gupta.

He gained instant stardom by belting out hits such as Main Sharabi, Angrezi beat and Lungi dance. Punjabi rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh, who has openly spoken about his struggles with bipolar disorder and alcoholism, says he has emerged stronger after his battles with his demons.

Singh was missing from the limelight around 2016-2017. He made a stunning comeback with songs like Dil chori and Chhote chhote peg in the film Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. He even featured in music video after four years with the single Makhna.

Has he come out stronger? “I have become stronger now. I never faced such problems in life but when it happened I had my family to support me and help me fight and get out of it,” Singh told. Singh, who real name is Hirdesh Singh, says he was sick and hence his career got a little slow during that phase.

“I was sick and when I recovered I chose to stay in the studio, and I think I made around more than 35 songs from 2017 to 2019. All these songs will come out soon.”

Singh can be labelled as the face of Punjabi pop in the late 2000s. His tracks became Bollywood specials, often a film’s main ingredient, as he started giving one hit after the other in movies such as Cocktail, Chennai Express, Khiladi 786 and Boss.
