Rohit demolished a fast South African bowling attack at home, hitting a hundred in his first Test match as an opener. Rohit Sharma carried on and made the occasion even more special in Visakhapatnam by making it twin hundreds in the Test series.
He did not stop then and there. Instead, he did the double magic! Rohit followed that hundred up with a double hundred in the series finale in Ranchi. Thereby making sure that the team did not look beyond him for the Test opener’s role.
