Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma, who slammed a 158-ball 209 against Australia in the seventh and final One-Day International at the Chinnaswamy Stadium to set up a 57-run win for the hosts, thinks that winning the series over Australia is more heartening.
Rohit wrote himself into the record books Saturday, becoming only the third cricketer after compatriots Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag to score a double century in ODIs.
Sharma struck 209 off 158 balls against Australia in the seventh and the final ODI at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
It was studded with 12 fours and 16 sixes. It was a record for most sixes in an innings.
Tendulkar was the first cricketer to touch the 200 landmark when he hit 200 not out against South Africa in Gwalior, February 2010.
