Rohit Sharma falls to Kagiso Rabada's short-ball trap in India vs South Africa 1st Test

Rohit Sharma and the pull shot is a match made in heaven but when fortune doesn't favour you, even the bravest of them fall.

That's exactly what happened with the Hitman on Day 1 of India vs South Africa 1st Test on Tuesday.

Playing his first match after a heartbreaking World Cup final loss over a month ago, Rohit fell to Kagiso Rabada's short-ball trap and was dismissed for a 14-ball-5 in the 1st innings in Centurion.

The Proteas pacer has dismissed Rohit 13 times so far, which is the most the Hitman has fallen to a bowler in his career. Out of those, 6 dismissals have come in Test cricket.

With that, an already poor record for Rohit Sharma in South Africa went from bad to worse. In 9 Test innings in the Rainbow Nation, the Indian skipper has managed to score just 128 runs at a poor average of just over 14. Moreover, he has managed to cross the 20-run mark just twice in those knocks.

Earlier, Rohit lost the toss and the hosts put India into bat in Centurion. Interestingly, India has never won a Test series in South Africa and have lost all 8 series so far in their 31-year history of touring the Rainbow Nation.
