Cricketer Rohit Sharma creates double ODI record

Making a return to the national side after a long injury, Mumbai batsman Rohit Sharma slammed an impressive 264 off 173 balls against Sri Lanka, which was studded with 33 fours and nine sixes. This was Rohit's second ODI double hundred as he scored his first one against Australia last year in Bangalore. With this, he became the first batsman to score two ODI double hundreds and in the process passed Virender Sehwag's best score of 2019 against the West Indies in 2011. With India touring Australia for a full series next months, Rohit will have ample time to get used to the bouncy tracks there, but it would be interesting to see if he manages to carry the momentum into the World Cup.
