Rohit Sharma’s name was engraved on the Surrey Honor’s Board, named after his classic ton. In fact, Surrey Cricket’s official Twitter handle tweeted that a new name has been added to Surrey Honor’s Board.
The last time India played a test match at Kennington Oval. Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul have carved their names on the Sally Honors board.
Whereas, Lord’s is known as the Mecca of cricket. Drawing a comparison for the same in terms of sanctity, the stadium scales the sky. Playing at Lord’s itself is a wholesome feeling for any cricketer in the world. Its like a boxer feels at home in the Madison Square Garden. Similarly, this stadium evokes a very overwhelming emotion in a cricketer. Indian players too have their names at Lord’s Board such as Rahul Dravid and Saurav Ganguly.
