Danielle Wyat praises Rohit Sharma by his post on Instagram after the Indian batsman gives brilliant innings against South Africa in Vizag.
India made an impressive win against South Africa, as the men in blue defeated the Proteas by 203 runs on the last day of the 1st test match out of the three-match series.
Amidst all of this, the highlight of the show was Rohit Sharma. The Indian batsman earlier struggled to cement his spot in the middle order of Indian test batting lineup.
However, talks on internet stormed when Rohit was moved into the opening spot in the order, and many doubted his capability in that role, as Rohit stepped out to open innings along with Mayank Agarwal.
Yet, Sharma smashed his critics and made two magnificent innings in the opening test match against South Africa in Vizag, which India won by 203 runs.
The Indian batsman scored back to back hundreds in the match and is only the sixth Indian to achieve this incredible feat in a test match. Moreover, Sharma became only the first opener in the history of the game to score more than 300 runs (303) in his maiden stint at the said position.
In response, all the praises from fans, journalists and cricketers joined the bandwagon to praise Sharma for his marvellous innings. The list now includes England Women tearaway opener, Danielle Wyatt.
The English cricketer who had in the past taken to social media to express his admiration for Virat Kohli after the Indian captain’s unbeaten half-century to oust South Africa in 2014, took to Instagram this time where she shared Rohit’s press-conference picture and captioned it as: “ROHITTT……..what a player!!”
Meanwhile. Rohit smashed 13 sixes in the process, making him the first player in the history of the test cricket to do it. If this was not enough, Rohit also became the first batsman to score seven consecutive fifty-plus scores in India.
An incredible performance by the vice-captain of India in the white ball format. With this Sharma’s spot as an opener seems guaranteed in the other two matches. Thus, his rest of the performances in the series are awaited.
