ICC Took A Dig At Sri Lanka On Rohit Sharma’s ‘264’ Day

Rohit Sharma has been winning hearts and creating records with his back-to-back blockbuster performances for a long time. However, there was this one knock of Rohit Sharma that is imprinted in every fan’s mind.



Five years ago, on November 13, 2014, Rohit Sharma played one of his best and most memorable knocks ever against Sri Lankans. Rohit Sharma took a Sri Lankan attack to the cleaners at Eden Garden of Kolkata.

He smashed the Sri Lankan to all the corners on the ground hitting 33 boundaries and 9 sixes He scored 264 runs, which is the highest-ever ODI score in cricket. However, things would have been different if Sri Lanka had not dropped him when he was on 4.

Yes, Rohit Sharma would have been dismissed on just four runs had Thisara Perera grabbed an easy catch at third man.


On Wednesday, as the epic knock marked 5 years, people on twitter celebrated the special knock of Rohit Sharma. “#5YearsofR0264” started trending on twitter and people flooded it with amazing posts and tweets appreciating the brilliant knock of Indian cricketer.

ICC also took to twitter and took a jibe at the Sri Lankan cricket team by reminding them of the dropped catch. They wrote:
