The first test of ongoing South Africa’s tour of India in Visakhapatnam kickstarted with the powerful opening from India’s newest opening batsmen Rohit Sharma, who scored two centuries and in-process went on to break many records.
Rohit Sharma justified his role at the top order by becoming the first batsman to score over 300 runs in his first Test as an opener. Apart from this ‘Hitman’ smashed 13 sixes in a match and achieved the record for scoring most sixes in a single Test, surpassing the former Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram.
His exceptional performance and all these records made Rohit Sharma the most deserving player for the ‘Man of the Match’ award.
From cricketers and fans around the world, people flooded Twitter with amazing reactions and messages for Hitman Sharma. Danielle Wyatt, the England women all-rounder, who follows Indian cricket and its players on social media, lauded Rohit Sharma for his record-breaking performance with a heart-winning post for Rohit Sharma.
