India captain Rohit Sharma made a comeback to cricketing action as he played in the first ODI against Sri Lanka on Tuesday. Sharma looked in great touch as he hit Sri Lanka bowlers all around the park. The opening batter also scored a half-century, his 47th in ODI cricket. Rohit, along with Shubman Gill, got India off to a flying start as the hosts accumulated 75 runs in the first ten overs. The duo then went on to put together another 68 runs for the first wicket.

The partnership was finally broken when Dasun Shanaka trapped Gill LBW. However, Sharma continued with his hitting, scoring 88 runs off 67 balls, before falling prey to Dilshan Madhushanka. Rohit played on a wide delivery from the left-arm pacer while trying to cut it. The batter walked back to the pavilion with a dejected face as he missed out on a long-awaited ODI century. 

Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir, who was commentating at that moment, claimed that Sharma was overconfident and hence got dismissed. “Rohit was overconfident,” the former India opener said.

Coming back to Rohit's inning, it was pure class from the India captain as he tore apart the Sri Lankan bowling lineup. Rohit hit nine boundaries and three sixes in his inning. Sharma looked to take on the bowlers right from the start. He targeted young pacer Kasun Rajitha, hitting a few boundaries and then a couple of sixes against him.
