Losing the toss for the second time in a row, Rohit Sharma’s India posted 392 in the second ODI against Sri Lanka in Mohali. It was their 100th 300-plus score in ODIs. This time Rohit’s third ODI double-century eased India to 300-plus score. Their first one came against Pakistan, courtesy centuries from Sachin Tendulkar and Navjot Singh Sidhu. India posted 305 for 5 and went on to win the match by 28 runs at Sharjah. The last time India registered 300-plus score was against New Zealand in the 3rd ODI, where they managed to clinch the match. They posted 337 for 6 at Kanpur. It was Rohit’s show again then. He smashed 168-ball 147. However, Rohit got equal support from Virat Kohli (113), where the duo put up 280-run stand for second wicket.

India have registered 300-plus score for the 10th time in 2017 and still counting. They have registered this feat thrice against England, thrice against Sri Lanka and once against Pakistan, West Indies, Australia and New Zealand. Of these games, India have emerged victorious six times.
