Today’s match was just fascinating as after a very upset performance in the last ODI, captain Rohit Sharma decided to make sure that he alone can do the stuff for the team India as he scored 208 in just 153 balls.
His innings consisted of 13-4’s and 12-6’s with a strike rate of 135.95.
With this, he became the only player in the world to score three double centuries in ODI 50 over format.
He was batting with Mahendra Singh Dhoni while he knocked his double century.
The first player to score a double century in ODI’s against a test playing nation was Sachin Tendulkar in India against South Africa in 2010 during the second ODI of the bilateral series in Gwalior. The most double centuries by players from one country is six by India. Two double centuries have been scored in World Cup matches, both in the 2015 tournament.
A complete dedication and he showed that he is the class and with that, India complete 392/4 against the Srilanka.
