Rohit Sharma records third double-ton in ODIs
Mohali, Dec 13 (CRICKETNMORE) - India skipper Rohit Sharma (208 not out), who piloted India to a mammoth 392 against Sri Lanka on Wednesday, became the first cricketer to score three double hundred in the One-Day International (ODI).
Coming into the match, the Mumbaikar was the only batsman to have hit two double tons. At the PCA Stadium here, Sharma belted an unbeaten 153-ball 208, comprising 13 fours and 12 sixes.
It was his sixth score of more than 100 in ODIs this year, tying with Virat Kohli (also this year) and Sachin Tendulkar (1996). The latter, though, holds the record of maximum nine centuries by an Indian in 1998.
