Indian opener Rohit Sharma led India from the front in a must-win One Day International by playing a breathtaking knock of 208* off 153 balls and helped his team to level the three-match series against Sri Lanka in Mohali on Wednesday.
With the match-winning knock, the elegant Mumbai batsman became the first batsman in the history of the game of cricket to score three double hundreds in the One Day format.
The 30-year-old is currently leading the National Team in the limited overs series against Sri Lanka in the absence of regular skipper Virat Kohli, who was rested by BCCI and will join the Team in South Africa.
Following the terrific inning, the right-hander, who has now seven double hundred in ODIs, received praise from cricket fans to cricket fraternity and his teammates on the social media, and even Indian head coach Ravi Shastri called his knock as 'full paisa vasool'
Shikhar Dhawan, who contributes 68-runs in the Team’s cause, also joined the chorus on the micro-blogging site Twitter, comparing Rohit’s stunning knock to buying cars and crazy stuff.
He wrote on his official Twitter posting a picture of himself with Rohit Sharma, "Super batting by the hitman!!You're hitting double centuries like you're buying cars????..crazy stuff???????????????? @ImRo45"
