Rohit Sharma has completed his century in style with a massive six and has thus almost completed his redemption in the longest format of the game. The players who used to receive a lot of criticism for his poor performance in test cricket outside the Indian subcontinent, has finally proven his haters wrong in the ongoing series between India and England.
The Hitman has been in terrific form from the very beginning of the England series. He has been the only consistent Indian batsman and has very conveniently cemented his position in the India XI as their best opener, and arguably, their best test batsman as of now.
Despite having played a number of brilliant knocks so far in the series, the only thing that was missing in Rohit Sharma’s long list of achievements was a century in England. However, he has finally achieved it against all odds and played a sensational 100 run knock at the Oval. He, however, can score much more if he can maintain the temperament that he is currently in as he seemingly has no plans of departing any soon.
In India’s second innings of the Fourth test, Rohit Sharma started off slow but started picking up after his half century. He played as many as 147 balls for his first fifty runs and then went on to complete his Century in 205 balls, implying that he needed only around 50 balls to score the next fifty balls. This is an insane strike rate as far as test cricket is concerned. Rohit Sharma scored 12 fours and 1 six to complete his century. The only six in his innings was the one with which he completed 100 runs.
