In the first innings of the Ranchi Test, Rohit was caught behind the wicket by James Anderson after scoring just 2 runs. But to chase the target of 192 runs to win in the second innings, Rohit came out aggressively and at the end of the day’s play returned unbeaten to the pavilion after scoring 24* runs. As soon as he crossed the mark of 21 runs in the second innings, Rohit crossed the mark of 4 thousand runs in Test. Rohit is the 17th Indian player to reach this milestone.

Completed 4 thousand runs in 100th test innings

Rohit Sharma, who made a great start to his Test career by scoring a century against West Indies in Kolkata in 2013, took more than 10 years to reach this position. Now 4003* runs have been registered in Rohit’s account in 100 innings of 58 matches. Rohit has scored these runs at an average of 44.98. This includes 11 centuries and 16 half-centuries. 212 has been Rohit’s best performance.

Performance in the current series has been excellent

Rohit has been in good form in the current Test series but has often failed to convert good starts into big innings. Rohit has so far scored a total of 266 runs in the current series against England at an average of 38 and strikerate of 65.35. Which also includes the century inning of 131 runs played in Rajkot.
