SEHWAG HAILS ROHIT FOR ‘DREAM BEGINNING TO OPENING IN TESTS’
Virender Sehwag hailed Rohit Sharma for the start he made as an opening batsman in Test cricket. Rohit smashed 174 and 127 in India’s first Test against South Africa in Visakhapatnam. The hosts ended up winning the match by a big margin of 203 runs. India’s decision to promote Rohit, who has had contrasting careers in Test and limited overs cricket, to the top of the order has often being compared to former captain Sourav Ganguly’s decision to allow Sehwag to open the innings. “Fantastic test match for @ImRo45, a dream beginning to opening the batting in Test cricket. Wish him the very best. That was a convincing win for India with some great contributions from Mayank, Shami,
Ashwin , Pujara . #IndvSA (sic.)” said Sehwag in a tweet.
