Rohit Sharma's 208*: A look at the record knock in numbers

Sri Lanka, who lost the three-Test series 1-0 against India, had been hoping for a repeat of the series opener in Dharamsala on Sunday, when India were bundled out for 112 in a seven-wicket defeat.

For India, Yuzvendra Chahal grabbed three wickets while commencing 60 runs, whereas paceman Jasprit Bumrah picked up two.

Opening the innings with Shikhar Dhavan, skipper Rohit Sharma with his unbeaten 208, got his name etched in history books to become the only player to score three double centuries in ODIs.

Leading the hosts in the absence of rested skipper Virat Kohli, Rohit laid waste to the Sri Lankan bowling with an unbeaten 208 off 153 deliveries to help India post 4-392 from their 50 overs.

It was hard to believe that someone completing his first hundred before the start of the back 10 would be able to reach his double hundred by the end but Sharma did that against all the odds.

Debutant Washington Sundar got his maiden wicket during the 2nd ODI match against Sri Lanka in Mohali.

Result: India won by 141 runs.

Still only 30, this was Rohit's 16th ODI century, taking him past Sehwag to fourth place in India's all-time centurion list. Sharma's first 50 came in 65 balls whereas Dhawan reached half century in just 47 balls.

With a striking rate of 101.49, Dhawan slammed nine boundaries.This formidable partnership was broken by spinner Sachith Pathirana, who had Dhawan caught by Lahiru Thirimanne.

When Rohit Sharma gets on the song, he does play one of the greatest of innings we've ever seen in limited-overs cricket.

For Shreyas Iyer too there was much to take home from this contest even though he fell 12 runs short of a century in only his second ODI match.

Rohit started the innings in a typical fashion and took time to settle down, but the signs that he was in for something special came when he seemed unfazed about the length balls and hit them for boundaries easily. The yorkers ended up in full tosses and the slower ones were smilingly put away by the batsmen.
