During the third and final one-day international match between India and New Zealand, which took place on Tuesday in Indore, Rohit Sharma achieved his first century in more than three years.
The captain of the Indian cricket team appeared to be in excellent shape as he smashed 9 fours and 6 sixes to reach the milestone in just balls.
After only 41 balls, Rohit reached his half century, and the subsequent 50 runs were scored in just 42 more balls.
When Rohit played in a One-Day International (ODI) match for the last time, it was in January 2020 against Australia in Bangalore, and he scored a century during that game.
The India captain, Rohit, was taken out by Michael Bracewell almost as soon as he reached his century after putting together an outstanding opening wicket combination with Shubman Gill, which totaled 212 runs. However, Rohit had already reached his century.
When the match first began, Tom Latham, the captain of New Zealand, won the toss and elected to field against India.
Henry Shipley, who made his debut in the first one-day international of the series, was replaced by pacer Jacob Duffy, who was the only change made by the New Zealand team.
India made two substitutions, with captain Rohit Sharma expressing a desire to provide the players who had been left out of the team’s lineups for the first two matches with additional valuable playing time.
The players Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj were given the game off to relax. In order to give Umran Malik and Yuzvendra Chahal more playing time, they were both brought in.
“We as a squad wanted to get out there and play well, therefore we would have gone up to bat first. We have had success here on every occasion that we have competed here because the field is so enjoyable to play on.
It is imperative that some of the newer players who have not yet participated in a game be given the opportunity to compete and that their performance be evaluated. There have been two roster adjustments: Shami and Siraj have been replaced by Umran and Chahal “remarked Rohit Sharma before the coin was flipped.
