Agarwal joins Rohit with a century as India marches ahead


With Rohit Sharma closing on to another 150 and his opening partner Mayank Agarwal just crossing the three-figure milestone, India are on their way to a big first-innings score. India, presently are in a comfortable position at 280-0. Rohit, who got his century on Day 1 yesterday, continued from where he left and added quick runs on the board. Agarwal, on the other hand, continued with his solid batting where he played out his time and punished the occasional bad balls.

Speaking to the media at the end of Day 1, Rohit, who is playing his first match as a Test opener said that batting at the top order always suited his game and that is what worked in his favour. 

"I think it suits my game, just wear the pads and bat. Waiting game, when I used to bat at five or six number, I won’t say it didn’t suit my batting. Your mind is fresh, we know we have to play the new ball. You know the bowlers who are bowling with the new ball do, so the game plan is easier for you," revealed the Mumbai Indians Captain. 

This is the 10th occasion for India in tests where both the openers have got a century and the first such occasion against South Africa. Incidentally, the current partnership is the best batting partnership for India vs South Africa for any wicket surpassing the 268 between Rahul Dravid and Virender Sehwag for the 2nd wicket in 2007.
