Rohit double century destroyed Lanka in Mohali

Mohali. Rohit Sharma destroyed the Sri Lankan bowling attack to score the 3rd double-century of his ODI career as India ended at a mammoth 392/4 in the 2nd ODI of the three-match series against Sri Lanka at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium in Mohali on Wednesday. Sent in to bat after Sri Lankan captain Thisara Perera won the toss, Sharma, who is leading the side in the absence of regular skipper Virat Kohli, who was away in Italy for his marriage, made amends for a poor outing in the first ODI at Dharamsala with a sensational double-ton.

With this knock of 208 not out, Sharma has decisively made himself an icon when it comes to batting in limited-overs cricket. His three triple-centuries are unlikely to be touched in a hurry, as no other batsman has even two and some of them have retired.
