British model Sofia Hayat gave a rather prompt reaction on Thursday as Rohit Sharma made history with a scintillating 264, the highest individual score in One-day Internationals against Sri Lanka at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Hayat posted her full nude pictures on Twitter and Facebook and dedicated it to his milestone.

The singer tweeted, "Dedicating my nude shoot to Rohit Sharma for his historic score! Well done! This one is for you! Proud day for India!" (sic)

He paced his innings to perfection, first getting set during the initial 50 runs and then exploding. His 264 came off just 173 balls, and included 33 fours and seven sixes.

In the process, he also broke compatriot Virender Sehwag's world record score of 219 runs, set against the West Indies in Indore, in 2011.

Rohit is also the only batsman to register two double centuries in ODIs and also now holds the record for highest number of boundaries during his innings.

Rohit’s proximity to Sofia Hayat had been blamed for his below average performance in the past.
