Rohit Sharma defeats Sri Lanka’s top bowler to become the first player ever to accomplish this amazing feat


Rohit Sharma became the first batsman to accomplish this enormous milestone in Test cricket history.

In the history of Test cricket, Rohit Sharma became the first batter to amass 30 straight double-digit scores. The previous holder of the record, Mahela Jayawardene of Sri Lanka, who had 29 double-digit scores to his credit, was overtaken by Rohit on Day 4 of the second Test match against the West Indies in Port of Spain. Rohit is frequently viewed as a specialist in white-ball cricket, but he has proven over the past few years that he is just as capable of scoring runs in Test matches as he is in limited-overs competitions.

The following is a list of Rohit Sharma’s past 30 Test innings: 12, 161, 26, 66, 25, 49, 34, 30, 36, 12, 83, 21, 19, 59, 11, 127, 29, 15, 46, 120, 32, 31, 12, 12, 35, 15, 43, 103, 80, and 57. To put India in a dominating position, Rohit once again displayed outstanding form as he hammered a stunning half-century and formed a respectable partnership with new opening partner Yashasvi Jaiswal.

During the closing session of day four, India declared their second innings at 181 for 2, setting the West Indies a challenging goal of 365 to win the second Test on Sunday.

On a day plagued by rain, Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan were still not out at 29 and 52, respectively.

India increased their advantage to 301 runs at tea despite the rain, which made only three overs viable in the afternoon session.

With the loss of Yashasvi Jaiswal (38 off 30), India added 20 runs in three overs before the Queen’s Park Oval skies opened up once more. India had sprinted to 98 for one before an early lunch was taken due to rain.
