Rohit Sharma continues to torment Proteas in India

Rohit Sharma continues to torment Proteas in India”

Sharma (199*) progressed rapidly to just one run short of his maiden Test double ton to push India to 357/4 at lunch after resuming on 224/3.

India had already removed both Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock in the first two overs of the match, with pacers Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav taking a wicket each.

Jadeja, who is ranked no. 2 in the ICC Test rankings for all-rounders, on Sunday, registered his 13th Test half-century and celebrated it with his typical sword-wielding display. However, he attempted a cheeky late cut against Linde shortly before the second new ball and only managed to edge the tall left-arm spinner into Klaasen's gloves.

Rohit made 212 and was involved in a 267-run fourth wicket partnership with Ajinkya Rahane to pulverise South Africa's bowling in Ranchi.

Number nine Umesh played a useful cameo of 31, hitting five sixes during his 10-ball blitz.

The senior batsman, playing his 30th Test, surpassed his previous best of 177 on his debut against the West Indies in 2013. However, their progress was halted early in the evening session as the light began to fade and the umpires took the players off with the play abandoned for the day 45 minutes later.

Rahane moved from his overnight 83 to complete his 11th Test hundred in the morning session of day two, earning a standing ovation from the Indian dressing room.

Rohit Sharma's century included 14 boundaries and four huge sixes.

Earlier Rabada struck twice to reduce India to 39 for three after the hosts elected to bat first on Saturday, which also saw a large part of the final session lost to bad weather.
