The ‘most challenging knock’
Speaking to scribes after the day's play, Rohit said that he was mentally ready for a good outing 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 anytime," he said. Speaking about his knock, Rohit said: "I would say it was most challenging. I have played only 30 Tests. In terms of what was thrown at me, I would definitely say it was probably the most challenging one.
"Test cricket has its own challenges. Having played only three Tests as an opener, I know I have long way to go. I am not reading too much into these three Tests. Of course, I will take a lot of positives, but I am not reading too much into it," he added.
