Twitter goes berserk as Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul smash quickfire tons against West Indies

Posted On

India vice-captain Rohit Sharma slammed his 28th hundred during the second ODI against West Indies in Visakhapatnam. The right-handed opener reached the landmark in the 34th over of fist innings.


Rohit took 107 balls to complete his ton. He smashed 11 fours and two sixes in the run-up to his century. Soon after, KL Rahul also brought up his 3rd ODI hundred. He reached the mark in 102 deliveries. This was also Rahul’s first ton at home.

Earlier, Windies skipper Kieron Pollard won the toss and asked the hosts to bat first. But his decision backfired as Rohit and Rahul went on to stitch a solid partnership of 227 runs for the opening wicket, helping India in seizing control of the match.


Rahul was the first to go after he sliced Alzarri Joseph’s delivery to Roston Chase at the third man position. He was dismissed for 102.
