Rohit Sharma 2 centuries makes history win over Proteas

Rohit Sharma 2 centuries makes history win over South Africa in the First Test.

Rohit Sharma was in the record-breaking mood on as he hit his second century in a first Test match against South Africa.

 The Indian opening batsman Rohit Sharma followed up his first-innings 176 with a 149-ball knock of 127 in the second innings, helping India to a declaration total of 323-4 to set the Proteas a target of 395 in the opening Test of the series.

By reaching three figures in the match, Rohit became just the second Indian opener – after Sunil Gavaskar – to hit centuries in both innings of a Test. Much like his knock on the opening day, Rohit was happy to go aerial. Having hit six sixes in his first century of the match, he went one better on day four, striking seven maximums. With his final six, he broke Wasim Akram’s record for the most sixes hit by an individual in a Test match, while India’s 27 sixes was also a record by a team in a single Test match.

With this being Rohit’s first Test at the top of the order, his exploits with the bat have also made him the first batsman to hit twin tons on their Test debut as an opener.
