Rohit Sharma 209 runs off 158 balls – India vs Australia – 7th ODI 

 

A 209 from Rohit Sharma took India to an improbable 383 runs. Rohit in the process broke a plethora of records. He smashed 16 sixes, a world record for an ODI innings, powering to a double-century, the third in one-day cricket and all of them by Indian batsmen in India. Records fell left, right and center as the duo of Rohit and MS Dhoni hit visitors to all parts. Here’s a stat which will give you idea of some carnage which took place at the end of Indian innings – India scored an unbelievable 116 runs in last five overs.

India in the process hit 19 sixes as they racked up 383; Australia replied with 326. Here’s another amazing stat- the 9th time in 11 innings that a team passed 300 in this series.
