After a horrible start to captaincy, at Dharmashala, Rohit hits back. Rohit Sharma aka ROHITMAN hit double century once more. It was his 3rd double century. He assisted by Dhawan at the start and later by Shreyas Iyer. He took 115 balls to complete his first 100 runs and remaining 100 runs are scored in just 36 balls. Hitman smashed 208 runs to Sri Lankan bowlers. He ended with the 2nd highest score as Indian Skipper(1st is Virender Sehwag).
HitMan became the 4th Indian to hit most sixes with 162 sixes. He added 12 sixes in his bag and remain not out on 208*(153) 13*4 12*6. Rohit took India’s scoreboard to 392. He became second Indian to score 4 consecutive sixes on four deliveries after Zaheer Khan. Rohit Sharma is the only player to score three Double Centuries in the history of Cricket. India will definitely give tough competition to South Africa if Rohit Sharma continues the form.
It was a really great comeback by Rohit after being criticized for his captaincy in first ODI. He took the patient start to his inning and them accelerated like an experienced batsman. He got brutely trolled about his captaincy and statements on social platforms but finally, hitman shuts the mouths of critics by his performance once again. His wife Ritika Sajdeh was in the stadium supporting him as always through his good or bad phase. It’s must mention that if anything happens with Rohit on the ground Ritika reacts before Rohit. It shows their relationship bond. We hope India will win this game and Rohit will get his Maiden win as a captain.
