Rohit put India in a strong position with 127 runs in the second inning.
Rohit Sharma I owned the third day of the fourth test in progress at The Oval on Saturday with a great knock of 127 runs. For his talented man, it was only his first foreign century in test form that made his debut in 2013. It took him a while to solidify his position on the side, and that happened after he started opening innings.
But he was also ignored by the test team, and the man once expressed disappointment with the same thing. In July 2018, Rohit Sharma indirectly tweeted about the exclusion from the test side of the England tour.
“The sun will rise again tomorrow,” he tweeted shortly after the announcement of the Indian national team for the England tour. He was clearly uncertain on the test team, so he gave his poor record against the swaying red cherries. But his life went around on Saturday when he recorded his virgin overseas tons of his test career in the same country (UK).
It didn’t take long for the same tweet to spread on social media by word of mouth. After exceeding 100 runs on the third day of the fourth test, he resurfaced.
The tweets are as follows:
The sun will rise tomorrow 😊

Rohit Sharma played most of the balls in the test series
Rohit Sharma’s ability to play the swing ball was questionable, especially in England, where the ball tends to swing all the time. However, the 34-year-old responded to all allegations with a bang. If there is one thing that is consistent throughout the Indian series, it must be Rohit facing many deliveries. He is currently playing the most balls in the series, beyond England’s skipper Joe Root.
He fought the toughest situations each time, with India batting the first three times in an overseas situation in the first inning. And he deserved luck in the oval on his way to the sparkling century. The man was so disappointed after he went out that he was hungry to turn it into a daddy hundred. Nevertheless, he is in a very good position for India so far.
