His fifty came of just 43 balls inclusive of 4 fours and 3 massive sixes. He along with Shikhar Dhawan added 109 for the first wicket before the latter fell for 54. Going for sweep shot, Rohit missed a leg-break by Akila Dananjaya that thrust into his pads. <p></p> <p></p>Rohit did opt for the review but it was to no avail. The pair of Rohit and Shikhar has also surpassed 3,000 runs in ODIs as a pair. Prior to this match, Rohit averaged 7.4 against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka (Last 10 innings: 4, 0, 11, 5, 5, 0, 0, 4, 4, 4). Rohit to his credit has the honour of being the second Indian to score a century in Twenty 20 International (T20I). He also has the highest individual score in ODIs for India (264). He is only player in the world to have two 200+ scores in ODIs. <p></p> <p></p>It was only last week that he was appointed India's ODI vice captain. He has seen all up and down 10 years of international cricket, where he is yet to cement a spot in the Test eleven. Rohit is used to take additional responsibility on the field, having captained <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/Mumbai-Indians" target="_blank">Mumbai Indians</a> in the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Indian-Premier-League" target="_blank">Indian Premier League</a> (IPL) to three titles.
