In-form Rohit Sharma is on a record-breaking spree now. Ever since making a debut as a Test opener, he has carved out a reputation for himself as the pleasing batsman by chipping in with candid scores in the ongoing Test series. He grabbed the opportunity in both hands tightly by making a sudden impact in the team. In the first Test, he scored twin hundreds and in the third Test in Ranchi, he essayed a flamboyant maiden double century, registering his personal best score of 212.
While Hitman Sharma is going places by making a statement with the bat, he became the highest run-scorer in a single India vs South Africa Test series, scoring 529 runs. His heavy-weight knock helped India get to a whopping 497-9 (declared) in the first innings.
Rohit Sharma trolls the reporters in his own style:
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma took a dig at the post-match presser adding that he was under pressure to perform as an opener in the longest format of the game, “I got a good opportunity to bat up the order and hence I wanted to use it fully. Other many things would have happened, you guys could have written many things about me. But now, you will write good things about me,” Sharma said in the media interaction in the post-match press conference.
“Another classic from yet another Rohit Sharma press conference #TeamIndia #INDvSA”, India’s governing body Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) wrote along with the video.

On the other side of the coin, South Africa are in grave danger now as they already lost two quick wickets for 9 runs. Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav picked one wicket apiece by dismissing Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock for 0 and 4 runs respectively.
India will resume dominance on Day 3 and will keep mounting pressure on the visitors until they are skittled out for a paltry score. South Africa have a long way to go and challenge India as they are in troubled waters now. They need someone to step up and steady the ship in order to escape from yet another disaster. They are trailing by 488 runs.
