SA v IND 2018: Watch- Rohit Sharma gearing up for the first Test against South Africa

Sharma sweats it out in the nets ahead of first Test.

Rohit Sharma will be looking forward to the Proteas challenge

Rohit Sharma's bat has been loud but melodious in the last month of 2017. He played some brilliant innings in limited overs series which turned out to be his highlight of the year.

However, the owner of three double centuries in ODIs has found a place in Indian Test team touring South Africa. He had a good Test series against Sri Lanka where his scores read 65, 50* and 102* in the Delhi and Nagpur Tests respectively.

The 30-year-old now wants to continue the same performance in upcoming Test series against South Africa. He was seen practicing at the nets during a training session ahead of the first Test at Newlands in Cape Town. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared the video on their Twitter account on Wednesday. "When @ImRo45 hit the nets here in Newlands #TeamIndia #SAvIND", BCCI captioned the video.

India and South Africa will clash thrice in Tests. The first encounter will begin tomorrow. While Ravindra Jadeja is doubtful for the first Test, Shikhar Dhawan was declared fit.
