How Rohit Sharma made his wedding anniversary, wife Ritika Sajdeh's birthday special

Indian skipper better known for his batting Rohit Sharma entered record books on Friday when he hammered a 35-ball century in the second T20I at Indore which equalled the recored of South Africa's David Miller by scoring the fastest century in the slam-bang format.

While his 264 at the Eden Gardens was laced with a few chances, during the double ton in the Mohali ODI and the century in the T20I in Indore - there was very little Sri Lanka bowlers could have done.

Rohit Sharma played a breath-taking knock on Decemeber 22 as he smashed a 43-ball-118 to register himself in the record books. Sri Lanka lost eight wickets for just 25 runs and lost the match by 88 runs. "They are bowling really well and generally the wrist-spinners with their variations are hard to pick".

The flurry of sixes and fours made the evening a memorable moment for everyone who were present there at Holkar stadium in Indore as well as for those who were glued to the TV sets. "The ball that you hit in the gap should also make you more happy".

Asked if he would have wanted to undo the decision to bat first, Perera said, "We have to back our strengths".

MS Dhoni hit 2 sixes and 2 fours in his innings of 28 runs scored off 21 balls. We have to back our strengths. We have good batsmen, but Rohit and Rahul were brilliant and got a good partnership. "Since I am leading the side for the first time, there is pressure and there will be pressure when we play the next match in Mumbai". While India would want to end the year on a high note with a whitewash over the visitors in the shortest format of the game, Lankans would want to play fearlessly and capture at least one win as a face saver before ending a rather disappointing year. We try to learn what we did wrong. In Dharamsala, we were in a position where the team could have folded for the lowest score possible. "We have to think of our batting and how we can do things better".
