Ro-Hitman Sharma just achieved and unbelievable feat and Twitter is going crazy in appreciation. The Indian opener who is also captaining the side in absence of Kohli just hit his third ODI double ton! Would you believe it?
Rohit Sharma got his century in 112 balls and then what we saw was an amazing change of gears. The next hundred of his came in just 36 deliveries and he punished every Lankan bowler.
This innings of his was more of a revenge for the Dharamshala debacle and Twitter is exploding in joy and Rohit Sharma gifts an amazing double century tohis wife on their second marriage anniversary.
In his unbeaten knock Rohit hit 13 fours and 12 sixes and it seemed as if he was bullying the Lankan bowlers. It was a must win situation for India after a disastrous defeat in Dharamshala and team India stood to the challenge as the captain led from front with a double ton.
No appreciation is enough
Any amount of appreciation is less for his heroics has there’s every reason why Twitter is celebrating his third double ton in ODIs.
Rohit Sharma has become immortal already in the record books of cricket as we don’t think that any player ever would be able to score three double hundreds and you never know, there might be more double tons to come from his bat. Here’s how Twitter exploded in utter joy as Rohit Sharma unleashed his destructive self yet again.
Here is how the Twitterati reacted to the herculean hitman knock:

Of all the 2.0's, Rohit Sharma 2.00* is the greatest blockbuster.
It all started at this same place – Mohali. Asked to open the batting vs England in 2013. Different player from there. One of the several masterstrokes from MS!

A third double for Rohit. When the conditions are in his favour, he is really quite unmatched

In this form, Rohit hitting a 4 should be reason to celebrate for opposition bowlers.
