Over the years, Rohit Sharma had developed a special bond with the fans across the world. Fans love to watch him in the action be it with the bat or with the ball or on the field. Besides his batting, Rohit Sharma has got smooth off-spin in his kitty to entertain the fans. However, ahead of Day 2, he surprises one and all with his medium-fast bowling in the nets.

Perhaps, the new pink ball would have prompted him to go for it in the nets. Besides that, he had spent a fair amount of time with the Indian bowling coach Bharat Arun. However, it wasn’t for his fast bowling but being a senior batsman in the side, he shared his thoughts to the bowlers, who are operating in the nets.

Rohit Sharma scored 21 in the first innings:

As a batsman, it wasn’t the game to remember for Rohit Sharma. Though he started off his account with a massive six, the flamboyant batsman committed an error of judgement to walk back with 21 runs in his kitty when he left an inswinger off Ebadat Hossain. However, he will remember the game for his stunning catch at slip cordon to dismiss Bangladesh skipper.
