Rohit Sharma created world Record, becoming the first batsman ever to smash two double centuries in ODIs. Rohit got his second double ton vs Sri Lanka in Eden Gardens on Thursday.
Rohit’s epic essay of 200 came off 151 balls and included 25 fours and 5 sixes. Rohit survived an early dropped chance (when he was on 4) and capitalised well to make his way into the record books.
Rohit, playing in his first ODI after injuring his hand in India’s tour of England, took time to get his eye in after stand-in skipper Kohli won his first toss of the series and elected to bat. However, following the dismissals of Ajinkya Rahane and Ambati Rayudu, Rohit and Kohli came together to plot India’s fightback.
There was a seamless transition in Rohit’s approach as the presence of Kohli instilled confidence in the Mumbaikar. He reached his 24th half-century of 71 balls and began to shift gears from thereon.
Sri Lanka’s good start was torn to shreds when Rohit raced away to a run-a-ball century and then belted their bowlers all around the iconic Eden Gardens to reach his 200 in the 46th over.
