IND vs SA 3rd Test: How Rohit Sharma weathered the early Kagiso Rabada storm to score his sixth Test century




With a swift leg-break, Kagiso Rabada got to beat Rohit Sharma’s defence in his first ball on Saturday morning. On a good-length delivery placed just outside off, Rohit had leaned in for push, but the ball moved away, beating the willow by a distance. Just like in Visakhapatnam and in Pune, the conditions in the opening session of the third Test, in Ranchi, offered a slight lateral movement. Rohit left the exact similar delivery that followed next. And that was followed by a stifled lbw appeal when a nipbacker just turned in sharply to thud into his thigh. A delivery later, Rohit was left befuddled with his footwork against an outswinger that carried an extra bounce. He was only lucky to not have given an edge after falling to the bait. Rabada looked fiery with the shiny white as he made the new ball do all the talking on the Ranchi surface that did have something in offer for the seamers. Rohit was beaten four times and suffered two lbw scares in Rabada‚Äôs first spell in Ranchi.
