Rohit Sharma continued his poor form against South Africa following another quick dismissal during the IND vs SA 3rd T20I match in Bengaluru. The Indian opening batsman was out for 9 runs from 8 deliveries making it seven innings since his least 50-plus score against South Africa. Rohit however, equalled one and broke another – before Kohli broke it again – record before being dismissed. The 32-yer-old opening batsman equalled MS Dhoni’s record for most T20I appearances for India and also overtook Kohli to become the highest T20I run-scorer during his short stay at the crease. But another poor outing disappointed the frenzy Rohit fans, who trolled their hero and favourite cricketer. India Vs South Africa, Cricket Score 3rd T20I Match.
The Right-handed opener, who needed 8 runs to overtake Kohli for most T20I runs, smashed consecutive boundaries off Kagiso Rabada in the second over of the match to reach the milestone. But Rohit was dismissed in the very next over after trying to drive an in-swinger from Beuran Hendricks in the second delivery off the third over. Since his 106 runs against South Africa in Dharamsala, 2015, Rohit has not scored a single half-century against the Proteas in seven innings. In 13 matches against South Africa, Rohit has smashed only two half-centuries and one century. His highest score since that Century in 2015 is 22 runs. Rohit Sharma Equals MS Dhoni’s Record of Most T20I Appearances for India During IND vs SA, 3rd T20I.

Rohit Sharma is Kumbhakarna
Rohit Sharma is lot like Kumbhakarna.
Wakes up once in a while, hastily piles up centuries and runs and then goes into hibernation for a long.

Rohit was dismissed for run-a-ball 12 on the eve of his 12th anniversary as a Twenty20 international cricketer. In Bengaluru, the 32-year-old made only 9 runs before getting out. Meanwhile, India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first. India have already taken an unassailable 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series.
