Rohit Sharma brought up his third Test century against Sri Lanka in the second Test match being played at Nagpur. This is Rohit Sharma’s third ton in this format in 4 years since he got his first Test hundred. This is big for Rohit Sharma as he is not a regular fixture in the Indian Test set-up (making a comeback after 13 months), despite being one of the mainstays for team India in coloured clothes. Rohit Sharma scored 102 off 160 balls and remained unbeaten, as India declared at 610 for 6. India acquired a lead of 405 runs over Sri Lanka. This puts India in a position of command, certainly. With India looking to open their account in terms of wins this series, for Rohit Sharma, this innings could go a long way in shaping his future in the whites.
He was also involved in a partnership of 173 runs with his captain Virat Kohli, who brought up his 5th double hundred. It was also Virat Kohli’s 19th Test ton, apart from being his 10th this year across formats.
This ton slammed by Rohit Sharma could also help him take the flight to South Africa. The South African team selection takes place in Nagpur in under 24 hours from now. But all that aside, here’s how Twitter reacted to Rohit Sharma getting to his ton.

As admirers of Rohit Sharma, we can only hope this is the inception of bigger things to come because his Test career simplify does not justify his talent.
