Rohit scored 161 runs off 231 deliveries on the opening day of the second Test, after Team India skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bat. The innings got off to a nervy start after Shubman Gill was dismissed for a duck by Olly Stone. The 33-year-old opener stitched a partnership of 85 runs with Cheteshwar Pujara, before the latter lost his wicket.
Skipper Virat Kohli was further dismissed for nought but Rohit helped India bounce back with a 162-run stand alongside Ajinkya Rahane.
The 33-year-old batsman was eventually dismissed after handing a catch to Moeen Ali off Jack Leach.
Team India ended the opening day at a score of 300/6 in 88 overs, with Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel the batsmen at the crease.
