Rohit Sharma scored his first Test fifty away from home as India recovered from 15 for three to reach 112 for four on Day Two of the first Test against New Zealand at Auckland. Rohit is batting on 57 while Ajinkya Rahane is on 16.

 

Rohit walked in after the dismissal of Virat Kohli with India precariously placed in reply to New Zealand’s 503. He was beaten first ball by Tim Southee. Rohit survived the new ball attack and moved along cautiously. He was on 16 when India went in to tea at 45 for three. Post the break, Rohit opened up with some fine shots on the off-side driving through the covers with elegance and timing. After the dismissal of Murali Vijay, he paired up with Rahane to stitch an unbeaten partnership and steer India to safety.

 

The Mumbai batsman’s form was in question as he failed miserably in the Tests against South Africa. But against a formidable group of pacers, Rohit defied initial pressure but still has a long way to go.

 

Rahane too creamed well-timed cover drives but most of them slowed down in the outfield resulting in just twos and threes.
