India is in commanding position in the third ODI of the three-match series against New Zealand after a solid hundred by India’s opening batsman Rohit Sharma. With series levelled at 1-1, both teams look for a crucial win in the final ODI. After being put into bat, India’s top-order started to build pressure from the start as Rohit Sharma and captain Virat Kohli helped India to reach the 200-run mark in mere 36 overs.
Rohit completed his 15th ODI century of the career and first against New Zealand. He also became the second highest ODI scorer in 2017, with first being captain Kohli. Rohit’s century was also appreciated by some former and current cricketers on social media.

A century by Rohit Sharma is always an occasion because there are few better looking batsmen than him in the game. This has been a treat.
