Rohit Sharma equals Sunil Gavaskar's record, sets record for most number of sixes in a Test series
Ranchi, October 19: Rohit Sharma made his third Test hundred as opener, sixth in Test cricket, in as many Tests when he crossed the three-figure mark in the third Test against South Africa at the JSCA Stadium here on Saturday (October 19).
Rohit made his debut as Test opener in the first Test Visakhapatnam and had made the occasion memorable with twin hundreds that guided India to a massive 203-run victory. Here in Ranchi, India were staring at the wrong end of the barrel when they were reduced to 31 for three after the dismissal of Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli.
But Rohit in the company of Ajinkya Rahane survived the storm the take India to safer shores. And he also toppled a few records on the way.
