India vs Sri Lanka, 4th ODI : Rohit Smashes Century As India Motor Towards Big Total

Two 100s by an Indian opener in a bilateral series :

  • Sehwag v NZ, 2002
  • Gambhir v NZ, 2010
  • Rohit v Aus, 2013
  • Rohit v Aus, 2016
  • Rohit v SL, 2017*

The series already sealed with an unassailable 3-0 lead, Virat Kohli’s next aim would be to give a chance to players who have only warmed the benches so far such as Kuldeep Yadav, Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane and Shardul Thakur. Kohli himself had a couple of low-scoring games and he would look to get back to scoring some more runs along with KL Rahul, who has not exactly looked comfortable in an unfamiliar No. 4 position. The India captain has already hinted that he wants to rotate players and chinaman Kuldeep may get a look-in. In that case, either Yuzvendra Chahal or Axar Patel will make way.
