New Delhi, Oct 14 (IANS) Rohit Sharma broke multiple records in the first Test between India and South Africa in Vizag and smashed centuries in both innings of the game to help his team register a comfortable 203-run victory.
The Board of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) took to Twitter to share a video after Rohit was dismissed in the Vizag Test which showed South African players congratulating the Indian opener. However, Iceland Cricket quickly took to Twitter and trolled the BCCI for not showing highlights of Rohit’s innings in it.
“Wow. Most sixes in a match, twin centuries, twin stumpings. Once again we thank the BCCI for these wonderful highlights: No Hits from Rohit,” the tweet read.
Rohit had scored 176 runs in the first innings and a 127-run knock in the second innings. The Mumbai batsman also became the first Indian to score a century in both innings in the first game as an opener in the longest format of the game.
However, in the second Test in Pune, Rohit failed with the bat as he could only manage 14 runs before being dismissed by South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada.
