When opener Rohit Sharma hit his third 200 in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) yesterday, he not only enhanced his status as one of the finest limited overs batsman of his generation, but also smashed several records.

It has also another milestones in a year that Sharma himself has called the 'best year' of his decade-old international career. Apart from his three double tons, he has scored seven hundreds this year (six in ODIs and one in Tests) -- all of this after a thigh surgery last November.
