Rohit Sharma was the main man in action during the first Test against South Africa. He got twin tons with scores of 176 and 127 runs in respective innings. Fans applauded the great display portrayed by the Indian batsman. Later, BCCI, posted a video after Rohit got dismissed in Vizag and was seen shaking hands with South African bowlers.
33-year-old got a great opportunity to make his debut as an opener against Proteas. He used this chance to an extent by breaking multiple records. He broke Wasim Akram’s record for hitting most sixes in a Test by going for 13 maximums including his both innings. He was also awarded Man of the Match in the 1st Test for his match-winning knocks.
Iceland cricket trolls BCCI during 1st Test in Vizag
Iceland cricket who is known for its trolling activities looked pretty active during the 1st Test. Firstly, they came with a hilarious post against BCCI when they uploaded a video about Ishant Sharma taking Temba Bavuma wickets, and ended up trolling them yet again over Indian opener’s post.
In second innings, the Indian opener got out to Keshav Maharaj after scoring brilliant 126. To applaud Indian “Hitman”, BCCI posted a video with the caption “Well Played”. In the video, we can see South African players congratulating India’s Hitman after his top knock.
Here is the tweet from BCCI:
