Ind vs Eng- Rohit Sharma’s wife Ritika: After folding England’s first innings for 578 runs, Indian opener Rohit Sharma failed to give the hosts a solid start on the third day of the first Test in Chennai. He was dismissed cheaply after getting caught behind off Jofra Archer for six runs. Interestingly, Rohit’s wife Ritika and daughter Samaira were present in the stands to cheer the Mumbai Indians skipper, but Rohit’s cheap dismissal was not something they would have wanted.
Sharing the picture of the two special supporters, the BCCI tweeted: “Say hello to our cute little supporter #INDvENG”.

England posted a mammoth 578 in their first innings before being all out on the third day of the opening Test against India here on Sunday.
Skipper Joe Root’s marathon 218-run knock was the highlight of the English effort on a docile pitch after the visitors opted to bat on winning the toss.
Opener Dominic Sibey and Ben Stokes were the other notable contributors with innings of 87 and 82 respectively.
For the home side, Jasprit Bumrah and off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin snared three wickets each after toiling for 36 and 55.1 overs respectively.
