#OnTheUp: Rohit Sharma to Rachael Haynes, the centurions take over

Social media

There were centuries all over the place in the last week. From Rohit Sharma's twin tons in Visakhapatnam to Rachael Haynes' maiden century in Brisbane, three figures ruled social media.

Among all the centurions, Rohit merits special mention. He struck two tons in a match, in his first-ever Test as an opener, and was declared Player of the Match after India's 203-run win against South Africa. He really is the Hitman.

Rohit's opening partner Mayank Agarwal did his utmost to go better. He scored a double century on the first occasion he reached three figures at this level.ย 

There were centuries from the South Africa camp too, with Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock doing their bit to ensure the Proteas fare well in the century battle.

(Phew, we've already lost count of all the runs!)

There was more. In Brisbane, Australia's Rachael Haynes brought up her first international hundred against Sri Lanka in the ICC Women's Championship ODI. The delight was evident.ย 

And over in Karachi, Danushka Gunathilaka hammered 133 in the final ODI against Pakistan ...

(Scorers really must have a difficult job!)

Speaking of centurions, here's a bunch who notched up a fair few. What a throwback too, this picture is a bar of absolute gold!

ย And Alyssa Healy ... well, see it for yourself.ย 

Elsewhere, Jofra Archer can't wait to return to cricket. Given the time he's had so far, one can't fault him for the enthusiasm.

ย But the Archers are few and far between. These two England lads know the importance of some good quality downtime.

Finally, this week's dose of entertainment from Jemimah Rodriques โ€“ trust her to keep these coming โ€“ features a colourful tale called the 'Wrong Sisters' ...

ย ... and a rap song for Harmanpreet Kaur!
