ROHIT SHARMA VS SRILANKA: – The mammoth 264-run innings by the Hitman should be called the mother of all hundreds, which is the world record for the highest individual score in ODI Cricket. Rohit’s 264 comes against the Sri Lankan side who were not formidable as they once were. This time around Rohit made up for the failure when he fell 10 runs short of the then-record held by Virender Sehwag — 219 against the west indies.

Virender Sehwag is without a doubt one of the greatest opening batsmen ever in the history of cricket. In a career spanning more than 14 years, the swashbuckling Delhi opener redefined the opening batting in all formats. While the people will remember the two triple centuries in test matches, his ODI double century in 2011 in Indore is equally memorable. Incidentally, that special double hundred knock turned out to be his last century for India in ODIs so it will always be cherished by fans all over the world.
