IND vs ENG, 3rd Test: Rohit Sharma Ton Rescues India; Goes Past Root, Equals ABD in Century Count

Rajkot: India captain Rohit Sharma showcased his resilience on the opening day of the third Test in Rajkot, steering his team out of a precarious position with a hard-fought century. Partnering with Ravindra Jadeja, Rohit’s innings lifted India from 33/3. This marks Rohit’s 11th Test century and his 47th across all international formats, surpassing England’s Joe Root in total international centuries. The milestone also puts him on par with AB de Villiers’ tally of 47 centuries.

Despite Rohit’s efforts, England’s bowlers, led by Mark Wood, dominated the opening session after India elected to bat. Wood dismissed Rohit early and then claimed the wicket of Shubman Gill for a duck, denting India’s top order. Gill, who entered the match following a resilient century in the previous Test, fell victim to Wood’s accurate bowling.

Rohit’s century and Jadeja’s support were crucial for India in recovering from a shaky start, although England maintained control with their disciplined bowling display.
