The two Mumbaikar toiled with the Proteas bowling post-lunch as India continue to come back in the match. Rohit has perhaps stamped his authority as a Test opener against a classic pace attack. He struck boundaries and scored runs at a good pace once he got hold of the wicket.
Meanwhile, as Rohit Sharma was approaching his third century of the series, rains started pouring. Rohit , who was keen to complete his century quickly was seen shouting not now as the weather started to show its colour. The swashbuckling opener didn’t waste any further time as he brought his century in the very next ball with a six.
