Ebene Magazine - Rohit Sharma achieves elusive feat, becomes first-ever opener to breach 1000-run mark in ICC Test Championship en

Opener Rohit Sharma played a key role in Team India’s fightback on the 2nd day of the ongoing 4th Test against England and scored a crucial 49 off 144. The senior batsman held one end even as India lost the wickets of Cheteshwar Pujara (17), Virat Kohli (0) and Ajinkya Rahane (27).

He looked set for a big knock but missed out, courtesy of some brilliant bowling display by Ben Stokes. Rohit, however, spent ample time in the middle and batted at a strike-rate of 34.03.

En route his 49-run knock, the 33-year-old achieved an elusive feat by becoming the first-ever opener to breach the 1000-run mark in the ongoing World Test Championship. A total of 5 batsmen had breached that mark before Rohit but all of them bat in the middle.

Rohit has played 11* Test matches and scored 1030* runs, at 64.37. He has 4 centuries and 2 half-centuries in the ongoing Championship. The right-handed batsman could have achieved the record a few months back but he had to miss 4 matches due to different reasons.

With 1030* runs, Rohit sits at the 6th spot on the list of most run-scorers. The list is topped by Australia’s Marnus Labuschagne, who has scored 1675 runs at 72.82. He wasn’t even first-choice selection and only got a chance when he replaced Steve Smith during the Lord’s Test as a concussion substitute. He has scored 5 tons, most by any batsman.

Following him is Joe Root, who has 1630* runs in 20* Test matches. Smith sits 3rd with 1341 runs, at 63.84. He has 4 centuries and 7 half-centuries. Ben Stokes (1332*) and Ajinkya Rahane (1095*) sit next.

The ongoing India-England Test match holds much importance as the home side has to either win or draw to qualify for the final. Tim Paine’s Australia will qualify for the final if India fall short against England. New Zealand have already qualified for the summit clash.
