After nearly a ten-innings slump in the Test cricket, Rohit Sharma lived upto his nickname ‘Hitman’ as he scored a much needed century on Day 1 of the ongoing second Test against England in Chennai.

After Shubman Gill’s dismissal on a duck, the responsibility on Sharma’s shoulder was further imposed. With India losing wickets at the other end, Sharma kept his calm which later paid off as a ton.

Currently batting, he has smashed 109 runs off 146 balls. His fiery knock includes fourteen fours and two massive sixes.

Batting with the vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane on the pitch, the duo has knit a 71 run stand between them.
