Though India had walloped Sri Lanka on his T20 Internationals captaincy debut, Rohit Sharma had a quiet match with bat. He decided to make up for that in the second match, at Indore. There was no respite for anyone as Rohit went bonkers, not sparing a single bowler en route the joint-fastest hundred in T20I history, in 35 balls. Rohit drew level with David Miller, who had done the same against Bangladesh earlier this year. Rohit also became the fifth batsman in T20I history to register 2 hundreds. Though Suresh Raina and KL Rahul have scored T20I hundreds, no Indian has got 2. Rahul himself took over after Rohit fell for 118

2 T20I hundreds by Rohit Sharma. He is the 1st Indian and 5th overall to do this, after Brendon McCullum (2010 and 2012), Chris Gayle (2007 and 2016), Evin Lewis (2016 and 2017), and Colin Munro (both 2017) . Rohit s first hundred had come against South Africa, at Dharamsala in 2015.

35 balls needed by Rohit to score his hundred, the joint-fewest in history. Miller had also brought up a 35-ball hundred, against Bangladesh at Potchefstroom earlier this year. Before 2017 the world record was 45 balls, held by Richard Levi.

2 cricketers have scored 2 hundreds in all three formats before Rohit Gayle and McCullum. Gayle remains the only batsman with a Test 300, an ODI 200, and a T20I 100.

2 men have scored more than Rohit in T20I cricket as captain: Shane Watson (124*) and Faf du Plessis (119).

108 runs scored by Rohit only in boundaries today (12 fours, 10 sixes) in a total of 118. That is a whopping 91.5% of his innings. Only 2 others have scored T20I hundreds only in boundaries: Aaron Finch (11 fours, 14 sixes: 128 runs) and Maxwell (14 fours, 9 sixes: 110 runs).

10 sixes by Rohit, the most for India, against Sri Lanka, and on Indian soil. The previous record for India was 8 (Rahul), against Sri Lanka was 9 (Glenn Maxwell), and on Indian soil was 9 (Mohammad Nabi).

165 highest partnership for India for any wicket, between Rohit and Rahul today. They went past Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan s 158, against New Zealand at Delhi last month, also for the 1st wicket.

3 bigger partnerships than Rohit-Rahul s 165: 171* (Martin Guptill-Kane Williamson), 170 (Loots Bosman-Graeme Smith), and 166 (Mahela Jayawardene-Kumar Sangakkara).

1 bigger T20I scores than India s 260/5 today. Australia hold the world record, with 263/3 against Sri Lanka at Pallekele in 2016. Sri Lanka had scored 260/6 against Kenya in the 2007 World T20.

89 highest second-highest score in a team innings, by Rahul today, after Rohit got 118. Rahul went past Smith, who had scored 88 when Bosman got 94 against England at Centurion in 2009.

1 Sri Lankan had conceded more runs than Nuwan Pradeep s 61 today: Sanath Jayasuriya had figures of 4-0-64-0 against Pakistan at Johannesburg in the 2007 World T20. Pradeep also broke Stuart Broad s record (4-0-60-0) in the same tournament for the most runs conceded against India.
