Team India’s opening batsman Rohit Sharma finally made amends for his disastrous tour of South Africa by scoring his 17th ODI hundred in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday.

With 40 runs in four matches so far and a miserable average of 10 in the ODI series, Rohit has had a tour to forget and was under scrutiny for his poor performance. But, he came back to form with a stunning century at St George’s Park and reached the three-figure mark with a quick two at backward square leg at off Tabraiz Shamsi. This was Sharma’s first at this ground and only the second against South Africa. Sharma was finally dismissed for 115 (126 balls) by Lungi Ngidi.

However, Rohit completed his century before having two mix-ups with his partners while completing a run. First, India skipper Virat Kohli got himself run-out and then Ajinkya Rahane sacrificed his wicket on a wrong call from Rohit.

Fans on Twitter also showed mixed reactions on Rohit’s comeback innings of 115.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions:
