Rohit Sharma must be very thankful to Tabraiz Shamsi for his 17th ODI ton. If Shamsi would have not dropped Rohit Sharma when he was on 96 then he would have never reached his century. When Rohit was on 96 he went for an expensive upper cut and Shamsi got in position to take what seemed a sitter.
But luck was Rohit Sharma’s way and Shamsi dropped a regular catch.
KOHLI WAS SEEN CLAPPING ANIMATEDLY IN JOY AS SHAMSI DROPPED ROHIT ON 96.
Rohit Sharma has been in troubled waters ever since the tour of South Africa started. After a poor run of form in the test series, things only worsened for him in the ongoing ODI series but the 5th ODI brought him a great relief.
Rohit Sharma was finally amongst runs and Port Elizabeth turned out to be generous for him. Rohit smashed his 17th Century as he played a brilliant knock of 115 runs which helped the team reach a defendable total of 275.
After having scored just 40 runs in the first 4 ODIs, Hitman finally joined the party.
Rohit scored his 17th ODI ton today and he must be a relieved man. This century brings great relief for Rohit and his team. As he finally got runs in this series, his fans erupted in joy and his fans are delighted.
Here’s the video of Rohit being dropped on 96 and Kohli’s unlatched joy:
