Rohit Sharma becomes the first International cricketer to score 2 double hundred’s in the One Day Format of the game. With this double hundred today in Kolkata today, he now has  hundred’s in all formats of the game at this venue i,e Tests, ODI, and T20 (IPL) century. He had scored the Test century in his debut against the West Indies.

Rohit Sharma scored  201* runs of 151 balls which included 25 boundaries and five 6’s. He scored his last 150 runs of less than 80 balls.  The highest score in ODI format of the game was 219 by Sehwag. The Sri lankan bowling team and the Captain had no clue on how to  dismiss the “HITMAN”. Rohit was earlier dropped by Thisara Perera when he wasn on 4, well Rohit surely did make him pay. Rohit now has the highest score by any Batsman in India vs Srilanka matches, previous highest being 183 by MSD.

Rohit Sharma last year on 2nd November had scored 209 runs off 158 balls which included 16 sixes and 12 fours. His 16 sixes in that innings  were the most in any innings by any batsman in the world.

Rohit Sharma was earlier dropped from the Team because of an injury, and in his comeback match he proved his talent to one and all once again. This innings should give him a lot of confidence before the Australian tour begins. Earlier Virat Kohli had said that Rohit, could be the X factor for the team. 

Rohit his still at the crease with  still some overs left, we need to see if he can break Sehwag’s 219…
