Rohit Sharma Creates History, Slams Record 264 to Become Highest ODI Scorer
After being dropped on 4, Rohit Sharma made the most of his lifeline to become the only man to slam two ODI double centuries. His knock helped India beat Sri Lanka by 153 runs.
Emotions galore! Rohit Sharma reacts during his epic double century vs Sri Lanka.
Rohit Sharma created history, becoming the first man ever to smash two double centuries in ODIs. Rohit got his second double ton vs Sri Lanka in Eden Gardens on Thursday. His first (209) came against Australia in Bangalore on November 3, 2013. Rohit also surpassed Virender Sehwag's 219 to become the highest-scorer in ODIs. Rohit was dismissed off the final delivery for 264, as India finished on 404/5 and eventually won the match by 153 runs. Rohit's scintillating essay included 33 fours and 9 sixes.
Rohit survived an early dropped chance when he was on 4 and capitalised well to make his way into the record books. He reached the 200-run mark off 151 balls. "I was not tired at all. Coming after a two-month break, I was determined. Once I crossed 50, I had to get a century," Rohit said in a chat.
