Rohit Sharma lauds Mohammed Shami for scalping 200 Test wickets

On Tuesday, India’s white-ball captain Rohit Sharma complimented pacer Mohammed Shami for completing his 200th wicket in Test cricket. Shami accomplished this milestone after capturing a fifer on the third day of the ongoing first Test against South Africa at SuperSport Park in Centurion. Rohit tweeted, “Double hundred is a special number #200.”

“The double hundred (#200) is a unique number. After Rahul’s brilliant batting on Day 1, Shami bowled an excellent show of seam bowling. 5 Test Wickets is a terrific approach to get to 200 Test Wickets in a short amount of time. India has taken a commanding 130-run lead thanks to his excellent bowling. Wishing for the batsman to take advantage of the situation and set a large target for South Africa, “VVS Laxman sent out a tweet.

Coming into the contest, India may have lost Mayank Agarwal’s wicket on the verge of stumping, but the visitors still led South Africa at the end of Day Three of the first Test on Tuesday. In the third session, India had bowled South Africa out for 197 runs before losing Mayank’s wicket minutes before the end of play. India reached 16/1 at stumps with a 146-run advantage thanks to Shardul Thakur and KL Rahul.
