The new opener for the Indian Test cricket team, Rohit Sharma, took to Twitter on Tuesday to explain that he is overwhelmed with how the month of October went for him. He expressed his happiness by saying the month was “assertive and clinical”. Rohit Sharma achieved many epochs as he scored many centuries in the test and ODI matches in the month of October. 

Rohit Sharma’s invincible triumph 

After Rohit Sharma made his debut as an opener in the Test format of cricket, he also won the titles of the 'Player of the Match' and the 'Player of the Series' for South Africa's tour to India. Rohit Sharma also surpassed Sir Donald Bradman's record of highest average in Test cricket on home soil in the longest format of the game in Ranchi. He broke this record as he became the fourth batsman in the history of international cricket to hit a double hundred in Test as well as ODI cricket after Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and Chris Gayle. He also became the only the 5th Indian opener after Vinoo Mankad, Budhi Kunderan, Sunil Gavaskar and Virender Sehwag to score 500-plus runs in a Test series.

No frustration for Rohit Sharma 

During the second day of the final Test match against South Africa, a lunch break was taken when Rohit Sharma was on his 199th run. He perceived this very calmly and said that the lunch break did not frustrate him. After breaking the 212-run record, in a press conference, Rohit Sharma explained his take on the lunch break and said, “That's the nature of the game, you can't do anything about it. I wouldn't say it's frustrating, it's just the laws of the game. The time it's supposed to finish, it has to finish at that time. But from my side, I mean, I wasn't thinking about it at all because I know the time will come and whenever it is supposed to happen it will happen. I am just trying to be positive and think positive at that particular time. I know it can get frustrating at times, but there is nothing you can do about it. I just went back happy, 199 not-out I would take that any day."
