Meanwhile, Rohit became the 20th India batter to achieve the 3,500-run mark in Test format.
Only Kohli (8,479), Cheteshwar Pujara (7,195), and Ajinkya Rahane (5,066) have more Test runs among active Indian players.
Meanwhile, Rohit, who averages 45+ in the format, has reached the milestone after 51 Tests. Besides 15 half-centuries, the India captain has also hammered nine centuries.
Rohit, who made his international debut in 2007, did not win his first Test cap until 2013. Despite smoking a lot in his debut, he blew hot and cold as a middle-order hitter. After being promoted as an opener in 2019, his fortunes shifted. Last year, he was anointed India’s full-time Test captain. 
Coming to the match, India captain Rohit and Yashasvi Jaiswal’s opening wicket stand of 146 runs put visitors in a dominant position as West Indies bowlers struggled for wickets in the first session of Day 2 of the ongoing first Test here at Windsor Park on Thursday. 
At the time of Lunch, India’s score read at 146/0, with Rohit Sharma (68*) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (62*) standing unbeaten at the crease.
Rohit and Yashasvi notched up India’s first-run opening stand in 23 Test innings. (ANI)
