Rohit Sharma smashed his third double hundred in one-day internationals to power India to comprehensive 141-run win against Sri Lanka in the second match in Mohali on Wednesday.

Such was the pace of Rohit's unbeaten 153-ball 208-run innings that after completing his 100 off 115 balls, he blasted his next 100 off just 36 balls.

 

Rohit reached his 16th ODI hundred en route to a double hundred. His last double hundred also came against Sri Lanka while the first one was recorded against Australia.

His breathtaking knock included a dozen sixes and 13 boundaries as he literally toyed with the opposition bowlers.

Check out some of the reactions on Twitter:
