On the second day of the first Test against Sri Lanka the all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja, was on his way to his first double century. On the other hand, the Indian captain had a difficult choice of whether or not to declare.
However, Rohit chose to declare the innings at 574/8, leaving Jadeja on 175*. It's his greatest score of the season and his second century in Test cricket. However, social media was divided and a section of people was trolling Rohit Sharma.
While some tweeted that India needed to win the Test and bowl the opposition out twice on a flat wicket, others believed that Jadeja should have been given till Tea to reach the milestone.
Here are the reactions:
