Twitter Reactions: Rohit Sharma slams a ton in series decider against Australia

Posted On

After scoring 10 and 42 in the first two games against Australia, Indian opener Rohit Sharma bounced back in style to make the most of the batting-friendly conditions at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday as he registered his 29th century in the 50-over format.


By reaching the triple-figure mark, Rohit joined Virat Kohli in an elite list. The ‘Hitman’ now stands fourth in the all-time list of most centuries in ODIs, as he surpassed Sri Lankan veteran Sanath Jayasuriya’s tally of 28 hundreds. He now only stands behind Sachin Tendulkar (49), Kohli (43) and Australia’s Ricky Ponting (30).

Rohit also became the second-quickest to the landmark, having scored his 29th century in just 217 innings. Only Kohli got to the mark faster than him – 185 innings.
