India white-ball skipper Rohit Sharma praised pacer Mohammed Shami as the latter completed his 200 wickets in Test cricket.
Shami achieved this feat after taking a fifer on Day 3 of the ongoing first Test against South Africa at the SuperSport Park, Centurion.
"Double hundred is a special number #200," tweeted Rohit.
Former India batter VVS Laxman also hailed the Men in Blue for their fine performance against the Proteas.
"After a fabulous innings from Rahul on Day 1, an outstanding display of seam bowling from Shami. Five wickets and a great way to get to 200 Test Wickets. With his fine spell, India takes a commanding 130 run lead. Wishing for the batsman to capitalise & set a big target for South Africa," tweeted VVS Laxman.
Coming to the match, India might have lost Mayank Agarwal at the cusp of the stumps, but the visitors still ended Day Three of the first Test against South Africa in the driver's seat on December 29.
