Rohit Sharma put up another spectacular show in the third test match between India and South Africa as he notched up his maiden test double century on the second day in Ranchi, on Sunday, October 20. Sharma reached the milestone in style as he struck a fantastic six off Lungi Ngidi on the first ball of the 88th over. Sharma who came out all guns blazing on second day looked determined to score a 'daddy' hundred but had to wait as the umpires called for lunch just after he reached 199. Playing his first series as India's test opener, Sharma has ensured to secure his berth as the test opener after a brilliant first match in the series where he scored a century in both the innings.

Twitter soon exploded with praises for Sharma's double century. Netizens also compared his batting style with former Indian opener Virender Sehwag and considered his knock as a tribute to Sehwag who turned 41 on Sunday. Cricket expert Harsha Bhogle also tweeted about the Rohit's double ton and said that it was career-defining knock by the batsmen and hopefully there are more centuries on the way. 

Here are some of the reactions:

India dominates SA on day 2

Resuming Day two after rain forced an early halt on Day one, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane began the day with positive intent as they rotated the strike and took quick singles. South Africa's attempt to rattle the Indian batting line-up with a renewed pace attack on a fresh day did not stop the Sharma-Rahane duo from marching on ahead, as Rahane notched up his century whereas Sharma scored 212 off 255 balls before losing his wicket to Lungi Ngidi. At the end of 96 overs, India scored 393 for 5 wickets with Ravindra Jadeja and Wriddhiman Saha on crease.
