Rohit’s fitting reply with bat; slams century

 Feb 13, 2018

India’s vice-captain Rohit Sharma has proved he is not down and out. Silencing his criticisers, Rohit Sharma on Tuesday has slammed a perfect century in the fifth ODI against South Africa at St Georges Park in Port Elizabeth.

His has completed his century from 108 balls with 4 sixes and 10 boundaries. South African wicket keeper Shamsi has dropped a catch when Rohit Sharma was at 96. Earlier, Rohit built a 100 runs partnership with captain Virat Kohli. Finally Rohit was caught by Klassen in Ngidi's ball for 115. 

Two run-outs- Rahane and Kohli- were unfortunate for India’s run flow. Opener Shikar Dhawan lost his wicket at 34.

Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer are building up a partnership now. For the past many days, Rohit Sharma was criticized for his poor run rate in the ODI. From the past 4 ODI’s he could collect only 40 runs.

In this 6 ODI series, fifth game is crucial for both South Africa and India. While South Africa look to win to stay in the series, India’s victory will help them to seal the series.
