Rohit Sharma surpasses record of most sixes in a Test series

Rohit Sharma surpasses record of most sixes in a Test series”

India reached 224 for three when bad light stopped play in the final session.

Rohit Sharma (117*) and Ajinkya Rahane (83*) were India's two standout performers on the day with the bat as the hosts ended the day on 224/3 after 58 overs.

The Mumbai batsman along with Hitman Rohit Sharma changed the dynamics of the game post-lunch.

India's Kuldeep Yadav prepares to bowl in the nets as he takes part in a training session at Old Trafford in Manchester, north-west England on 8 July 2019, ahead of their 2019 Cricket World Cup semi-final match against New Zealand.

South Africa lost the toss for the 10th time in a row against India but responded well and soon had the early advantage after Rabada's double strike. Sharma also became only the second Indian player after Sunil Gavaskar to score three or more hundreds in one Test series. Mayank Agarwal (10) was first to go, edging to Dean Elgar at slip, and when the Proteas successfully overturned a "not out" lbw decision, Cheteshwar Pujara (0) joined him back in the dressing room. He found plenty of support from Ajinkya Rahane with the two adding 150 runs for the fourth wicket.

Kohli made a review of his own - a leg-before call - but tracking technology showed the ball would have grazed the leg stump.

A shoulder injury will keep Indian wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav out of the third Test against South Africa, the country's cricket board said Friday.
