NEW DELHI: India opener Rohit Sharma roared back to form with a superb century against South Africa in the fifth ODI of the six-match series at St George’s Park, Port Elizabeth on Tuesday.

Rohit overcame his dismal run, scoring just 40 runs in the first four games, by slamming his 17th ODI hundred off just 107 balls to help India post 274/7 after being put into bat. He smashed 10 fours and four sixes during the course of his second ton against Proteas.

Rohit has been given life on 96 when Tabraiz Shamsi dropped a sitter at third man off Kagiso Rabada in the 34th over.

This is Rohit’s first century in his 12th ODI in South Africa since he played his first match in 2011. He has averaged just 11.45 with highest of 23 before this match.

India got off to a good start in the match going past fifty-run mark in the 8th over. Shikhar Dhawan continued his dream run in the series hammering eight fours in his 34 off just 23 balls.

India’s limited overs vice-captain Rohit has smashed a record third double hundred in ODIs and joint-fastest century in T20s against Sri Lanka last year but runs deserted him in the ongoing tour of South Africa.
