India batsman Rohit Sharma on Saturday (September 4) scored his 8th Test century during the fourth Test against England at The Oval. It was also the first time Rohit reached a three-figure score in an overseas Test match.
Mumbai Indians (MI) players were delighted after their captain reached his hundred on Day 3 of the fourth Test. They congratulated Rohit for the terrific knock of 127 runs which has also proved his worth as an opener in the red-ball cricket if there was any doubt.
" "Please keep doing this, Ro". #OneFamily share a special message for the Hitman after his fine ???? at the Oval ???? #MumbaiIndians," wrote Mumbai Indians on Twitter while sharing the video.
Rohit's IPL and India teammate Hardik Pandya lauded Rohit for the innings and said, "Very special day, Ro's hundred. As a teammate as my captain here, as a friend, I am very happy for Rohit to score a hundred. I actually dropped him a message as well a few days back that Ro you are going to do something very special and I am so glad that he's got one.
"He's going to do wonders ahead as well. Many more to come and we all know that how a great cricketer you are and how special you are. So, lots of love from everyone, and the whole MI is very happy for you, and yeah please keep doing this. It's very entertaining and it's very pleasing to the eye to watch you play."
Mumbai has already set up their training camp in UAE ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 second phase. Rohit will join the franchise after the England tour, which concludes on September 14.
The five-time champions, Mumbai Indians will play their eighth match of the tournament, which will be their first of the second leg, on September 19 against Chennai Super Kings.
