Stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma led from the front in the second ODI against Sri Lanka in Mohali on Wednesday after India put up a dismal show in the opening game in Dharamsala and brought up his third ODI double hundred.

The Hitman hit a historic third ODI double ton and remained not out on 208 as India cruised to a mammoth score of 392/4.

Twitterati came forward to congratulate the run machine. Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar took to Twitter and wrote, "Way to go my friend. Always a joy to watch you bat :-)) @ImRo45"

Viru too had something to say.

Of course, there were jokes too.

Interestingly, Rohit Sharma also equalled former India opener Virender Sehwag to score his 14th century as an opener in the 50-overs format. He now has 3 of the 7 double hundreds scored in ODIs.


While Tendulkar scored 45 ODI 100s as an opener in 344 games, Sourav scored 19 centuries as an opener in 242 matches. Sehwag will now sit fourth on the elite list after Rohit scores another 100.

Fascinatingly, Rohit now also has 6 centuries in this calendar year in 20 games. Tendulkar scored more centuries in 1998 when he hit 9 centuries in 33 games. He also scored 6 centuries in 1996 from 32 games. Sourav scored 7 centuries in 31 games in 2000 — his first year as captain of the Indian team.


One man army.
