Rohit Hitman Sharma on Wednesday became the first batsman on the planet to smash 3 ODI double centuries. Not a single player has even two which goes on to prove the magnitude of this record. It was simply carnage at the PCA Stadium in Mohali which saw Rohit smash his 16th ODI century and in the process also reached his 3rd ODI double ton.
Very much like his earlier two double tons, the innings was set up perfectly. He began cautiously and struck some gorgeous shots to get going. He reached his half-century in 65 deliveries and went on to reach the elusive century in 115 deliveries. The party hadn’t started yet, and it was the 41st over from when Rohit went berserk.
Everything came off the middle of the bat and kept on flying over the fence. He had struck only a solitary six till the 40th over, but the last ten overs saw the sensational hitter of the ball smash 11 sixes to finish on 208 of 153 deliveries. He reached his 2nd century in just 36 deliveries as the Sri Lankan pacers were left scratching their head.
Upon reaching his landmarks, Rohit kissed his wedding ring and blew a kiss towards his wife Ritika Sajdeh, and it was a sweet moment caught on the camera. After his husband completed his 3rd double ton, Ritika couldn’t resist his tears and was seen wiping her eyes. It was the perfect gift from Rohit to Rikita on their 2nd marriage anniversary.
Meanwhile, the love quotient between the two was quite evident; it was veteran actor Anupam Kher who admitted to having been touched by bonding and chemistry of their love story. It is the purity of love between the two which caught the attention of Anupam Kher.
“No film can capture the purity of love story of @ImRo45 and his lovely wife, Ritika. So moving and so beautiful. Close-ups of both of them are magical and say so much in just those few seconds. Congratulations to both of you on your second wedding anniversary. Jai Ho.:)”, Kher tweeted.
