Rohit Sharma Silences Critics with Stellar Performance in Fifth Test

England's dismal performance in the fifth Test against India has drawn criticism from former England captain Geoffrey Boycott. After England's victory in the first Test, Boycott had questioned the age and ability of India's captain, Rohit Sharma. However, Sharma has silenced his critics with a string of impressive performances, including two centuries in the series.

Boycott's comments, published in a column for the Telegraph, had sparked outrage among Indian social media users. He had written, "Their captain Rohit Sharma is nearly 37 and past his best. He makes pretty cameos but has only scored two Test hundreds at home in four years."

Boycott's assessment of Sharma's abilities has been proven wrong by the Indian captain's recent performances. In the second Test, Sharma scored a century and a fifty, while in the third Test, he scored another century. His tally of 400 runs in the series is the fourth-highest among all players.

Sharma's resurgence has been a major factor in India's dominance in the series. After losing the first Test, India has come back strongly to win the second and third Tests. England, on the other hand, has struggled to find consistency and has been outplayed by India in all departments of the game.

Boycott's comments have been met with derision by Indian fans, who have taken to social media to express their support for Sharma. Many have pointed out that Sharma's recent performances have proven Boycott's assessment to be inaccurate.

The Indian captain's form has been a major boost for India, who are now on the verge of winning the series. With two Tests remaining, India needs just one more win to secure a series victory. England, on the other hand, faces an uphill task to salvage something from the series.
