Mumbai: India batsman Rohit Sharma on Thursday became the first player in the history of international cricket to register two double hundreds in his one-day international (ODI) career. In the fourth ODI against Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens, the Mumbaikar went berserk hitting bowlers all around the park.
The Borivali lad, grown up playing cricket in the maidans here, started slow. He accelerated once he completed his half-century. Rohit breaks Virender Sehwag’s 219 vs West Indies in 2011. He accelerated once he completed his half-century. He scored 264 off 173 balls (33 boundaries, nine sixes). India ended 404/5 at the end of 50 overs.
