Team India opener Rohit Sharma has made an outstanding start to his career as a Test opener against South Africa in Visakhapatnam. India rode on to his brilliant century to get off to a strong start in the opening day of the first Test.

Rohit came into the playing XI in place of KL Rahul after his consecutive failures and has delivered when needed the most. There have been a lot of debates in the last few days whether it was a right decision to promote a makeshift opener in red-ball cricket.

The spotlight was on Rohit Sharma coming into this Test, who took guard as an opener for the first time in red-ball cricket for India and he’s passed the litmus test with top marks. Mayank Agarwal too complemented his opening partner as India made the most out of the batting wicket.

India went to lunch at 91 without losing a wicket and in the process, Rohit brought his half-century. The Mumbai-born batsman kept his scoring boots on and marched towards his fourth Test century. South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis tried various options but failed to find a breakthrough.

The Proteas bowlers were good but the Indian openers dominated them to lead the batting unit. Rohit Sharma took Dane Piedt for two sixes in an over to enter the 90s. He punched one to the deep cover off Senuran Muthusamy to bring his fourth hundred and first as an opener.

India will breathe a sigh of relief to found an in-form opener in Rohit after struggling to the opening slot for quite some time now. The seasoned cricketer will hope to take this to a big knock and help the host take a strong grip in the Test match.
