Kolkata: Rohit Sharma, who struck a century on debut in India's innings and 51-run win against the West Indies in the first Test of Sachin Tendulkar's farewell series, said that the long wait for the Test cap was worth it. (Scorecard)
Rohit, who is the latest entrant in the all-Indian ODI double century club, had to wait for 108 ODIs and six years for the Test debut. He came close in 2010 but a freak injury moments before the toss forced him to miss the Nagpur Test against South Africa in 2010. (Related: Rohit, Shami dominate Eden stats)
"All I can say, it (the wait to make debut) was worth it, it can't get better than this, such a memorable match, really happy with what we have achieved," said Rohit, who is the only cricketer to make a Test debut after playing 100 ODIs.
