Rohit Sharma’s remarkable run as an opener in Tests drew to an end following his dismissal to Abu Jayed for just six runs on Day 1 of the India vs Bangladesh 1st Test match at Indore. Rohit, who hit two centuries and a double hundred in his first four innings, since making his opening debut in the first of a three-Test match against South Africa was caught by wicket-keeper Liton Das while trying to drive an off-stump delivery early into his innings. Disappointed fans soon started trolling the Hitman for his disappointing outing against Bengal Tigers.
Rohit’s dismissal also meant that India’s opening duo of Rohit and Mayank Agarwal have now failed to stitch even a fifty runs opening stand since the record-breaking 317-run they stitched in their first ever outing together as an opening pair. Rohit, 32, started slowly and was cautious. The right-handed opener struggled to settle down especially with his opening partner Mayank facing more of the deliveries. During his 14-ball stay at the crease, Rohit hit one boundary which was also from an edge with the ball flying above the slip cordon.

Earlier, Bangladesh failed to make most of their decision to bat first bundling for only 150 runs and under two and a half-session. Mushfiqur Rahim was the top-scorer for Bangladesh with 43 runs, while captain Mominul Haque was the next best scorer with 37 runs.
The duo also stitched an 88-run partnership for the fourth-wicket to somewhat halt a Bangladesh collapse but Ravichandran Ashwin cleaned-up Mominul to break the stand and become the fastest Indian to complete 250 wickets at home. Mohammed Shami then breathed fire to take a three-wicket haul and send Bangladesh packing for just 150 runs under the belt.
