Rohit Sharma’s Unwanted Record: 8-Ball Duck in 2nd Innings vs South Africa

Rohit Sharma’s middl stump was cleaned by Kagiso Rabada with a memorable ball.

Rohit Sharma faced a swift dismissal in the first Test against South Africa. He didn’t even score a single run, facing only 8 balls. His struggles against Kagiso Rabada led to a clean bowled dismissal. Adding to India’s problems, Yashasvi Jaiswal also fell short with only 5 runs.

Rohit Sharma has now equaled Virender Sehwag’s record for the most ducks in international cricket for India.
