Rohit Sharma’s outing as the stand-in captain not only had a good outing leading the side but it was also a good one for him individually. He scored his third double century in the ODI series, becoming the only player to achieve that feat and he also set the world record for the fastest T20I century in the 2nd T20I at Holkar, Indore.
In the 35-ball-hundred, he equaled David Miller’s record and went on to maul the Sri Lankan bowling and at one point it appeared that he would also score a double century. The shorter boundaries at the Holkar stadium and a belter of a pitch did mean that a run-fest was expected but the skipper was clearly batting in a different zone.
KL Rahul scored 89 runs that played a brilliant supporting act for Hit-man’s blitzkrieg. Rohit’s 43-ball 118 steered the hosts to 260-5 and then dismissed Sri Lanka for 172 in 17.2 overs, taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Rohit smashed 12 fours and 10 sixes after India were put into bat.
Head Coach of the Indian team, Ravi Shastri, was elated as it could be seen in the dressing room. He also went on to express his happiness and shower praise on the skipper for his knock on Twitter. In his usual flamboyant style of expressing, he tweeted, “Indore went Outdoor to be treated to a HITMAN Masterclass – @ImRo45 #INDvSL #TeamIndia.”
Rohit replied in a special way saying, “Thanks Ravi bhai. Even though we were in Indore your appreciation could be heard outdoor.”
He was probably referring to his Shastri’s way of expressing. When he is angry, he appears livid and when he is happy, he appears like the happiest man on the ground. Like yesterday, when Rohit got out, he gestured asking him about who should come in to bat next. Rohit communicated by showing the actions of the wicket-keeper, meaning MS Dhoni.
