Ajinkya Rahane ended a three-year wait for a Test hundred at home when the India vice-captain went past the three-figure mark on day two of the ongoing third Test against South Africa in Ranchi.

Rahane hit his 11th Test hundred and second of 2019 with the seasoned campaigner putting his batting troubles well and truly behind him.

Rahane resumed batting on Sunday on his overnight score of 83 and got going with a cracking cover drive against South Africa pacer Anrich Nortje. Rahane got to his landmark in just 169 balls, having hit 14 boundaries and a six.

He eventually departed for 115, falling to George Linde who picked up his maiden Test wicket as Rahane tried to play a nothing cut shot.

Rohit Sharma, meanwhile, is still at the crease as he closes in on a maiden double century. He put the pressure on South Africa pacers, hitting boundaries at will.

Sharma is currently on 184, his third 150-plus score in Test cricket. Can he get to his maiden double hundred? He looks good to get a really big one here.
