India’s middle-order batsman Rohit Sharma got roasted by Twitterati after another failure in the first innings of the second test match in Centurion on Sunday.
Rohit missed out on a big innings getting trapped lbw against the South African star pacer Kagiso Rabada. He scored only 10 before getting out.
In the ongoing series, Rohit has scored only 11, 10 and 10 in the three innings. He is playing ahead of vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane in the Test series, and clearly, captain Virat Kohli’s bold selection hasn’t gone down well with Indian cricket fans.
On a reasonably batting friendly Centurion pitch, Rohit missed out and Twitter was brutal in calling him out and captain Kohli’s alleged bias towards Hitman.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions:

Rohit Sharma is entitled to fail, no issues but not at Rahane’s cost.
