Rohit Sharma’s spectacular innings of 208 unbeaten against Sri Lanka created world record as it’s his third double century in ODIs. He’s the ‘Double Century Man’. His extraordinary 208 not out helped India reach 392/4 against Sri Lanka. By witnessing Sharma’s 208 run innings in a match against Sri Lanka, all we can say is that the future of Indian cricket is in right hands. The 30-year-old cricketer has touched the double century mark twice in the past, 209 (2013) against Australia and 264 (2014) against Sri Lanka.
Following Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma is precisely the finest cricketer in the Indian team. Yes, Sharma is yet to achieve momentum to play good cricket persistently and make some good runs but it doesn’t take the fact away that he’s one player in the team without whom Indian team may look quite a weak side. Rohit’s outstanding champion innings of 208 in just 153 balls is going to be a classical inning, which would be remembered for many comings years. Let’s analysis the underrated Sharma’s unbeaten 208 innings in a brief way. The 30-year-old cricketer made first 100 runs in 115 balls, and it took just 36 balls for Sharma to make another 100 runs. All it defines is how dangerous player Rohit Sharma is. The cricketer just needs to settle himself down on the crease for some time and the rest is as always – History.
Rohit Sharma’s third double century in ODIs is not just another thing. We all know that it is not easy to touch the mark of 200 runs in ODIs but the 30-year-old cricketer has done it not for once or twice but for thrice. This record enlightens the abilities of Rohit Sharma as a cricketer. We believe that there’s no more cricketer dangerous than Rohit Sharma if he settles down on the cricket ground for once. The future years are going to play a crucial role for the cricketer as that are going to play a major role in making Sharma’s career as legendary and as big as ex-legendary cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman and more.
