The first day of the second test match between India and England in Chennai has turned out pretty well for the hosts. All thanks to a wonderful and majestic knock of 161 by Rohit Sharma. The opener managed to score so big in spite of losing partners at the other end in regular intervals.
The pitch was playing quite strange even on the very first session of the test match. However, Rohit went through everything that came in his way to score a ton in just 130 deliveries.
The opener made sure he dominated the England bowlers in Chennai. He brought up his fourth Test hundred as an opener and his seventh overall in the longest format of the game.

Well played @ImRo45 One of most satisfying century in challenging conditions. Also shows the importance of positive intent, decisive footwork when batting on a tough pitch. Now convert this into a biggie. #INDvsENG #class #elegance @StarSportsIndia pic.twitter.com/h9yGqmKJvs
