It was once again the Ro-hitman Sharma show at Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore in the 2nd T20 match between the men in blue and the Lankan’s where the Hitman smashed 118 runs in just 43 balls. He was absolutely destructive with his strike rate of 274.42 with those massive sixes coming from his bat. Scoring this century Rohit Sharma equals the record of the fastest Twenty20 International century, set by South African batsman David Miller.

Just a few days back Rohit created history with the only player in world cricket to score the double-century more than two occasions and Rohit once again repeated the show in the 2nd T20 game. It looks like there is nothing stopping this Indian opener as he makes batting look so easy. It was raining just fours and sixes from the Hitman storming the Lankan bowling attack. It has not been a good series so far for the Lankans as the Indian batsmen like Rohit are in such a great form.

 But it does not stop over here for Rohit, while he equaled South African’s record, he went past another. Rohit overtook the record AB de Villers of most sixes in a calendar year. Rohit smashed 118 runs off 43 balls which included 12 fours and 10 sixes. This takes Rohit’s tally of sixes to 64 which is one more than the South African’s record of 63 in the year 2015. There is still more Hitman also now holds the record of most sixes in an innings by an Indian that is 10.

To this wonderful inning by Rohit the former Indian opener Virender Sehwag twitted “RoHit Sharma! Mazaak bana rakha hai yaar. It ain’t this easy yaar” followed by VVS Laxman’s tweet What a stunning century it was from Rohit Sharma. 35 ball 100. May this purple patch continue.

Here are few more twitter reactions by the Hitman fans for his remarkable performance:

The hosts would look for a whitewash on Sunday and embark on their tour of South Africa with full confidence. We also hope that Rohit Sharma continues his form and break some more records in future matches.
