Rohit Sharma has got a chance to open the inning in test cricket, and he fully uses this opportunity. In the ongoing India versus South Africa test Series, he opens the innings first time in test and scores two centuries in the first two innings. Yesterday, Rohit Sharma scored his maiden test century. He has scored 500 plus runs in the ongoing test series. After scoring the double hundreds, when he attended the press conference, Rohit Sharma takes a cheeky dig at reporters.
When the reporters asked Rohit Sharma, Do you want to break all possible record as an opener.
“Wanted to use the opportunity to full. Otherwise, a lot would have been said and written (about my Test career). You folks write a lot about me. Now you will write some good things I hope,” Rohit replied reporters after Day 2 in Ranchi.
“It was a good opportunity for me to open the batting. As I said during the Vizag Test, the communication between me and my team management was happening for a long time about opening the batting. So mentally, I was ready for it. I knew it could come at any time,” Rohit Sharma added.
“Speaking of this particular knock, I would say it was most challenging. I have not played much. I played only 30 Tests. In terms of what was thrown at me, I would definitely say it was probably the most challenging one,” Indian opener said.
“New ball does something. In Pune and here (Ranchi), it was tough in the morning. Rabada spell was quite challenging. But conditions overseas will be different. Not reading too much right now, waiting for the overseas challenge as an opener,” said Rohit Sharma.
