Rohit Sharma has scored his 3rd double century in ODIs, which happens to be a world record. Indian captain Rohit Sharma scored 208 and remained unbeaten against Sri Lanka in the 2nd ODI at Mohali. Rohit Sharma also holds the record for the highest ODI score in the history of the game against the same opposition at Eden Gardens. Rohit Sharma scored a double hundred on his 2nd anniversary against Sri Lanka, that too in front of Ritika. Ritika was present at the I.S. Bindra stadium and witnessed the epic knock.
When Rohit Sharma got to the magical double, Ritika broke into tears, just highlighting what it meant for the couple. Ritika Sajdeh has always been the driving force behind Rohit Sharma. She has stood by the batsman during thick and thin. This hence seems to be the ideal 2nd-anniversary gift the Indian captain could give his better half.
Meanwhile, after being decimated by the Lankans in the 1st ODI by 7 wickets, India has come back really strong in the 2nd ODI. Thanks to Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer, India put on a mammoth 392 for the Lankans.

As we speak, the Lankans are 183 for 7 and the match is almost lost. Sri Lanka requires another 210 runs with 3 wickets and 15.0 overs remaining, which looks beyond their reach.
So, if India wins it at Mohali, they square the series and set up a cracking decider.
