Rohit Sharma’s debut Test innings as an opener in England ended in disappointment when he was dismissed for a well-made 34. In defense, the 34-year-old looked sturdy and handled each ball with care.
When Rohit Sharma watched Kyle Jamieson’s bigger delivery, he couldn’t help himself. Rohit pushed one behind to Tim Southee, who completed a brilliant grab at first slip, hanging his bat outside off-stump.
Twitter reacts to Rohit Sharma’s dismissal
Indian supporters were disappointed since they expected Rohit Sharma to show his worth in these difficult batting conditions. Some, on the other hand, mocked the star opener for squandering yet another promising start. The following is how Twitter reacted to Rohit’s firing:

Rohit Sharma did his job well for India at opening. Never easy facing out Duke ball for first time, but he played well for his 34. Sees out 20 overs with Shubman Gill before getting out. pic.twitter.com/pBsViPg9rz

On a greenish surface and in overcast conditions, Kane Williamson put India in to bat. Both openers, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill, were outstanding from the first ball. They calmly waited outside off-stump for deliveries, but they didn’t miss any loose balls and punished them to the fence.
Rohit Sharma had a lot to prove, and it was questioned if he has the necessary technique to succeed under these challenging conditions. He had a penchant of placing his front foot too far across the field, triggering the LBW.
Rohit tweaked his approach and was rewarded with immediate results. His backfoot blows were particularly beautiful and attractive to the sight. Rohit Sharma has given India a wonderful start by adding 62 runs for the first wicket with Gill.
Bowlers from New Zealand, particularly Tim Southee and Trent Boult, may be guilty of inconsistent line and length. However, Rohit’s and Gill’s two fast wickets have propelled them back into contention. It will be interesting to see how both sides fare in the future.
What is the amount of ar?
