Rohit Sharma is the only man to smash more than one double hundred in ODIs. He struck his third during the India vs Sri Lanka ODI in Mohali on Wednesday.
Rohit Sharma scored a historic third double hundred as India continued to be ruthless against Sri Lanka in the second of the three-match series vs Sri Lanka in Mohali.
On November 13, 2014, Rohit had set a world record for the highest individual score in ODIs with a scintillating 264 at the Eden Gardens against Sri Lanka. He had scored his maiden ODI double hundred against Australia the previous year.
Rohit, standing in as India captain in Kohli’s absence, had a nightmarish time in Dharamsala. He was dismissed for 2 and India were bundled out for 112 before Sri Lanka romped home with seven wickets to spare.
However, it was a different story on Wednesday as India fought back in typical style in Mohali on a flat pitch. He was watchful in a 115-run stand with Shikhar Dhawan(67runs) before opening up when Shreyas Iyer(88 runs) joined him in the middle and India set the target 392 runs in 50 overs.
Rohit hits in his innings 208 runs not out in just 153 balls and in this innings he hits 12 sixes and 13 fours.
