The first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy between India and Australia was won admirably by India under the leadership of Rohit Sharma on Saturday in Nagpur. The seasoned Indian opener won the game with a century, earning praise from the cricket community. Former Australian batter Mark Waugh talked extensively about the incredible ascent of Indian captain Rohit in the longest and oldest version of the game as Team India took a 1-0 lead in the four-match Test series.

Rohit was named the permanent Test captain of India in February 2022, however, he was only able to participate in two of India’s five Test matches. The great hitter Rohit did not participate in either of India’s Test victories over Bangladesh last year, nor did he play in the high-profile Birmingham Test match against England in July. The Indian opener had missed eight of India’s previous ten Test matches before leading Team India in the intense match against Australia in Nagpur.

Captain Rohit led Team India from the front and scored a brilliant century to help the Ravindra Jadeja-led team defeat Australia in Nagpur. The senior hitter Rohit has had a fascinating Test career, according to former cricketer Waugh, who was speaking to Star Sports during the four-match Test series between India and Australia.

“Hasn’t Rohit’s (his Test career) been interesting? He was something of an underachiever at the beginning of his career. He had to become more disciplined. He has always had time, however, just like all the great players, and he has always had a touch of class. He uses a pretty straightforward method. In white-ball cricket, he has always been a match-winner, but in Test cricket today, “said Waugh.

At Nagpur, Rohit made history by becoming the first Indian skipper to score hundreds in each of the three international cricket forms. India reached a tremendous total of 400 runs in 139.3 overs, with Rohit scoring 120 runs off 212 balls. India crushed Australia by an inning and 132 runs to grab a 1-0 lead in the four-match series, riding the wave of Rohit’s maiden century as Test skipper.

“He is disciplined and possesses a wide variety of strokes. Now, the mental game is everything. Under every circumstance, he plays with class. He performs well abroad and possesses a game that is ideal for Indian playing conditions. He has excellent hands and range, and he pays special attention to the ball. He can change gears up or down depending on the scene since he reads the game effectively “Added he.
