Indian opener Rohit Sharma smashed a tremendous century in the ongoing second Test against England at MA Chidambaram Stadium on Saturday. It was the seventh ton for Rohit in the longest format. Interestingly, all of Rohit’s centuries have come on home soil till date.

Rohit brought up his hundred off 130 balls when India reached 147/3. The Mumbaikar was looking in good touch with the willow in the last few weeks since returning to the whites after injury.

Rohit has now scored hundreds in each of the 3 formats against 4 different opponents – Sri Lanka, West Indies, South Africa and England. No other cricketer has managed to achieve this feat against more than two opponents.

Earlier, India got off to a dreadful start as Shubman Gill was dismissed for a duck in the second over when Olly Stone trapped him lbw. Rohit and Cheteshwar Pujara added 85 runs for the second wicket, before Pujara fell for 21 off Jack Leach. Spinner Moeen Ali then clean bowled Virat Kohli for a five-ball duck.
