Yuzvendra Chahal calls Rohit Sharma ‘G.O.A.T’ as netizens praise him after first ton as opener


Rohit Sharma was the point of discussion ahead of the first test against South Africa as the Indian Limited overs vice captain was going to open in test cricket for the first time, and the veteran batsman didn’t disappoint the Indian fans, pundits or critics as the Nagpur-born lad scored a century in the second session of the game before the game was cut short due to rain as India completed day 1 on 202/0, courtesy a century from Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal.

Meanwhile Netizens and contemporary players took to twitter to congratulate the veteran batsman for his herculean performance.

Posting a picture of the opener, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal wrote: “Real G.O.A.T”

Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh tweeted: “Wah @ImRo45 Brilliant 100.. dress blue ho ya white koi fark nahi padta.. Rohit HiT hai bhai (Brilliant ton by Rohit, it doesn’t matter whether he is in the ODI or Test team. He is a hit).”

Former India opener and commentator Aakash Chopra also praised Rohit and tweeted: “4th Test Century. 1st as an opener. Rohit has grabbed the opportunity with both hands. Well played.”
