Rohit Sharma continued his impressive record against Australia in the ODI format as he kick-started the 3-match ODI series with a hundred. However, his century wasn’t enough to take India over the line while chasing a 289-run target. They were three down for just four runs before Rohit constructed the innings combining for a century partnership with MS Dhoni. After the dismissal of the former skipper, the opener carried his fight alone before getting out for a 129-ball 133 that included 10 fours and six sixes.
All the major stats and numbers record by Rohit Sharma during his 22nd ODI century:
4 – Number of ODI centuries Rohit Sharma has scored against Australia in Australia; the most by any player surpassing Viv Richards’ three hundreds. Rohit has a total of five hundreds in ODIs Down Under; the joint most among non-Australian players alongside Kumar Sangakkara (5).
4 – He has scored an ODI century in Australia at four different venues; the joint-most by any visiting player. Desmond Haynes, Kumar Sangakkara, Virat Kohli and Brian Lara also have scored an ODI hundred at four different venues in Australia.
Rohit has scored hundreds at these four venues – MCG, WACA, Gabba and SCG. No other player has scored an ODI ton against Australia at more than two different venues Down Under.
7 – Number of ODI hundreds Rohit has against Australia; only Sachin Tendulkar (9) has more centuries in this format against Australia. Rohit’s 1726 runs in AUS-IND ODIs are the 3rd most behind Sachin (3077) and Ponting (2164).
10 – This is the 10th consecutive ODI series/tournament in which Rohit Sharma has scored a century. The next best streak is six consecutive series/tournaments by Virat in 2012.
11 – This century by Rohit is the first for him in a losing cause after 11 consecutive hundreds in the ODI format ensured India a win. This is the joint-longest streak for any Indian player. Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Virat Kohli also had 11 consecutive ODI tons in India wins.
64 – Number of sixes Rohit has hit in ODIs against Australia; the most by any player against a single opposition in this format. He went past Shahid Afridi’s tally of 63 sixes against Sri Lanka in ODIs.
Rohit has hit a total of 87 sixes in International cricket against Australia which is the 2nd most by any player against an opposition behind Chris Gayle’s 88 against England.
133 – Rohit Sharma’s 133 is the highest individual score by an Indian top four batsman where remaining three from the top three got dismissed for single digits. VVS Laxman made 131 against Zimbabwe in the 2004 Adelaide ODI while batting at No.3 where other three batsmen from top four made 0, 0 and 1.
188 – Innings Rohit took to score his 22nd century in ODI cricket. Only Hashim Amla (126), Virat Kohli (143) and AB de Villiers (186) needed fewer innings for their 22nd ODI hundred.
