While this has not sparked controversy as yet, it is surely bound to grab eyeballs.
Rohit Sharma on day four of the ongoing final Test at Brisbane did something similar to what Australia’s premier batsman Steve Smith did. On Monday, Rohit was seen standing on the batting mark of Smith and shadow batting. While this has not sparked controversy as yet, it is surely bound to grab eyeballs.
The incident took place during the drinks break after the first hour of play on day four that was dominated by the Australians.

Just heard on-air @sanjaymanjrekar saying that wat @ImRo45 just did (shadow batting) was EXACTLY wat @stevesmith49 did, that’s half stmt, Rohit didn’t scuffed batsman guard which Smith did & that’s point of debate.Let’s not say half stmt & make it look real #AUSvIND #INDvsAUSTest

In the first innings, Rohit got among the runs as he scored a gutsy 44 off 74 balls and lay the foundation.
At the time of filing the copy, Australia was looking positive in the middle trying to extend their lead and put pressure on the Indians. The conditions are overcast and there are predictions of rain. At the moment, all three results are possible.
