Rohit Sharma seen imitating Harbhajan Singh's bowling action


New Delhi: In the first Test played between Team India and England, the visiting team performed brilliantly and batting first put 578 runs on the board. The Indian top order proved to be a flop in front of England's huge score. Rohit Sharma was dismissed for 6 runs off Archer's ball. After which Shubman Gill also returned to the pavilion, holding a catch at Archer's ball. After this, cricket fans have started trolling Rohit on social media and they are being mocked badly.

Indian star batsman Rohit Sharma was seen copying spinner Harbhajan Singh on the second day of the first Test match of the series against England on Saturday. In this test match released in Chennai, Rohit Sharma was handed the ball by Captain Virat Kohli for the final over of the second season.

The Indian opener bowled the last ball of the over, mimicking Harbhajan Singh's bowling action. This video clip of him is going viral on social media.

Earlier, England captain Joe Root scored a double century and also became the first cricketer to score a double century in his 100th Test. Root shared a 124-run partnership with Ben Stokes for the fourth wicket.

England did not lose a single wicket in the first session of the second day, with Root and Stokes adding 92 runs in that session. England won the toss and decided to bat first. On the first day, the visiting team had scored 263 runs losing 3 wickets.

Root, batting at number four, hit 19 fours and 2 sixes in his innings of 377 balls. Ben Stokes contributed 82 runs off 118 balls with 10 fours and 3 sixes.

Rohit Sharma's poor outing in Test cricket continued in India, as the opening batsman was dismissed for 6 on Day 3 of the ongoing first Test against England in Chennai.

Sharma has crossed 50+ score only once in his last seven Test innings, averaging only 23.1 for 162 runs. This is also the first time since 2015-16 when the Indian opener failed to reach double-figures in successive Test innings. He was dismissed on 7 in the second innings of the Brisbane Test against Australia. 

When India bat second, Rohit Sharma averages 22.25 as opener, with only one half-century in eight innings.

England fast bowler Jofra Archer set Rohit up perfectly in the fourth over of the game. Archer bowls a back-of-the-length ball first and generates movement off the bounce, beating Rohit's bat. On the second delivery, Archer angles it into the pads but the leg-side line allows Rohit to flick it beautifully for a boundary.

Archer, then, brought out the short-pitched delivery again and Rohit, clearly boosted in confidence with a boundary on the previous delivery, chases the delivery and gets an outside edge. Wicketkeeper Jos Buttler makes easy work for the catch behind the stumps.

Earlier, England were bowled out on 578 in the first innings of the Chennai Test. The side's captain Joe Root slammed an incredible double-century, scoring 218 runs, while all-rounder Ben Stokes (82) and opener Dom Sibley (87) also made key contributions in the innings.

For India, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravichandran Ashwin took three wickets each, while Ishant Sharma and Shahbaz Nadeem each picked up two wickets.
