Rohit Sharma was included in the Indian team for the third match of the Border-Gavaskar series against Australia. He did not play the first two Tests due to quarantine rules in Australia.
Rohit Sharma achieved a special position in the third match of the series against Australia. He became the first batsman in the world to score 100 centuries against Australia in international cricket with a six off Nathan Lyon.
Australia put Lyon on the attack early but Rohit did not let them set him up at the start. He went ahead and batted aggressively against them.

Rohit however could not bat for long and became the victim of Josh Hazlewood in the 27th over of the Indian innings. The appeal against him was rejected by Lion’s ball but after that he caught him off the ball of Hazelwood. He scored 26 runs. He added 70 runs for the first wicket with Gill. Gill continued his game even after Rohit was dismissed. He scored 50 runs. Rohit missed the limited overs series and the first two Test matches.
