Rohit Sharma, who was recently omitted from India’s playing XI, was released from Mohali, so that he could participate in the Ranji Trophy. It definitely seems that the results of this were fruitful.
Sharma scored a classy century against Uttar Pradesh at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Such an innings will put more pressure on the team management to include Sharma for the second test in Bangalore.
During his knock against UP in Mumbai, Rohit played an array of strokes and was aggressive from the word go. He looked to dominate the UP bowlers and just batted beautifully.
The timing of this knock was simply perfect, as going into the second test, India need to strengthen their batting unit. At the moment, no one better than Rohit to do that for sure.
Below, is the video of Sharma’s classy ton against UP:
