Rohit Sharma smashes his fastest Test fifty!!

India captain Rohit Sharma made a strong start to the second Test against West Indies in Ahmedabad on Saturday, smashing his fastest Test fifty off just 31 balls. He finished the day on 60 not out, reaching 144 for two at stumps on day one. Sharma was in scintillating form from the start, hitting boundaries all around the ground, particularly on the West Indies spinners, hitting them for three sixes. His opening partner Mayank Agarwal also made a solid contribution, scoring 38 before being caught behind off Kemar Roach. Shreyas Iyer was unbeaten on 22 at the end of the day, as India looked to build on their strong start.

The West Indies bowlers struggled to contain the Indian batsmen, with only Roach and Jason Holder managing to make any inroads. The tourists will need to improve their bowling if they want to get back into the game. The second day of the Test is expected to be even more challenging for the West Indies bowlers, as the pitch is likely to get more dry and dusty. India will be hoping to take advantage of the conditions and score a big first innings total.

Reactions to Rohit Sharma’s innings include former India captain Sunil Gavaskar, who called him “in the form of his life,” former West Indies captain Brian Lara, who called him a masterclass in batting, and current India captain Virat Kohli, who called him an inspiration to all of us. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the Test unfolds, as India will be looking to build on their strong start, while the West Indies will be hoping to make a comeback.
