Rohit Sharma scored a historic third double hundred as India continued to be ruthless against Sri Lanka in the second of the three-match series vs Sri Lanka in Mohali.Rohit was the only man to score more than one double hundred in ODIs. Four other batsmen – Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Chris Gayle and Martin Guptill – have only one each.On November 13, 2014, Rohit had set a world record for the highest individual score in ODIs with a scintillating 264 at the Eden Gardens against Sri Lanka. He had scored his maiden ODI double hundred against Australia the previous year.LIKE A BOSS! THIRD double century in ODIs. The first man to scale Mt.200 on three occasions in ODIs.

He was dismissed for 2 and India were bundled out for 112 before Sri Lanka romped home with seven wickets to spare.However, it was a different story on Wednesday as India fought back in typical style in Mohali on a flat pitch. He was watchful in a 115-run stand with Shikhar Dhawan before opening up when Shreyas Iyer joined him in the middle.No other player has more than one ODI 200… @ImRo45 now has THREE!What an unbelievable innings! ??? #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/u80KyDP2PR- ICC (@ICC) December 13, 2017Rohit was in fine form in late 2016 before an injury ruled him out of international cricket for seven months. He returned to competitive cricket during the IPL and made 333 runs from 17 matches as Mumbai Indians lifted the trophy for a record third time.advertisementRohit was an automatic choice to partner Shikhar Dhawan in the Champions Trophy and he made an immediate impact with scores of 91, 78, 12 and 123 not out as India stormed to the final. However, he was dismissed for a duck in the title clash against Pakistan.Rested for the bilateral series against West Indies, Rohit returned for the Sri Lanka tour with scores of 54, 124 not out and 104. Against Australia, he carried on from where he left off in Sri Lanka and smashed successive scores of 71, 65 and 125 as India won the series 4-1.Later in the year, Rohit turned his attention on New Zealand and set up India’s victory in Kanpur with a scintillating 147.
