#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
