Kolkata: Rohit Sharma (file photo)Rohit Sharma, who scored a century on his Test debut against the West Indies on Thursday, said that the Eden Gardens has been a special venue for him and familiarity with the pitch here has helped him in building his innings.

"This is where I made my first class (Ranji) debut for Mumbai as well when I started off. If you've noticed, we have won the IPL final here (earlier this year). Also, this was the place where I was given the Mumbai Indians captaincy for the first time," Sharma said.

"The Eden is really special to me. I really love playing here. I got decent amounts of runs here while playing for Mumbai. I hope it turns out to be better tomorrow," Sharma told reporters after his unbeaten 127 in an unbroken 198-run stand with Ravichandran Ashwin (92 batting) put India on course to win the first Test.
