A well made knock of 83 off 145 by India’s Rohit Sharma finally came to an end courtesy of a brilliant delivery by none other than Jimmy Anderson. The HItman played one of his best test knocks in the recent past on foreign soil today and that too at the historic Lord’s cricket ground. Rohit Sharma has given India a huge boost which was much required and they can very well go past 350 in the first innings if they can keep the momentum going.

India have started off the Day 1 of the second test between them and England at Lord’s on a high, picking up from where they left it in the first test. Having won the toss, England opted to bowl first and as it now stands, India have aced the first quarter of the day in the most efficient manner. Openers Rohit and KL Rahul seem to be in terrific form, especially Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma showed today what he is made up of and gave a hard time to almost all the english bowlers. It was only at the very end that Jimmy Anderson got the better off him and Rohit Sharma missed his century by just 17 runs. It was more of a quickfire innings for Rohit Sharma and a much required one as well.

Chetteshwar Pujara replaced Rohit after his dismissal but did not pretty much do the job. The Test specialist is going through a rough patch currently and India will definitely expect him to make a comeback soon.
With this knock though, Rohit has added to his runs tally and is one of the prime contenders to be the highest run-getter in the ongoing test series.
