India is again getting the better of Sri Lanka in the ongoing final Test of the two-match series at the M Chinnaswamy stadium Bengaluru. Earlier the hosts clean-swept the Lankans in the three-match T20I series 3-0, and now, they are on the cusp of completing a 2-0 sweep in the Test series. In the day-night affair, the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma entertained the fans inside the stadiums, as well as the others across the world, by playing reverse scoop, not once but twice.

Rohit Sharma, after coming to open for India in the second innings, played the shot against Sri Lanka’s left-arm spinner Lasith Embuldeniya on the afternoon session of Day 2, and went with a similar shot again in the second session against the same bowler. He picked up the line on both occasions, rolled his wrists after going low, and placed it behind square on the off-side for four.
