Tim Southee bagged his 100th wicket by dismissing Rohit Sharma for 20 runs in the second One-Day International at Hamilton on Wednesday. Southee was on 98 wickets at the start of the match and struck with the wickets of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit.
Dhawan who was struggling to get going came down the track to slog Southee but missed it completely and was bowled. Few overs later Rohit got a feather edge and was caught behind by wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi.
Indian openers had a tough time dealing with the impeccable line maintained by the pacers. However, Rohit started loosening his arms after the arrival of Virat Kohli.
He went after a length ball from Kyle Mills and hit it for a six. In the next over of Southee he pulled a short ball for a boundary. But that was it for Rohit as he yet again departed after a slow start.
