Mohali Test: Rohit Sharma's double ton helps India level series

India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal then took 3-60 as the hosts restricted Sri Lanka to 8-251 to square the three-match series at 1-1. This was Rohit's maiden hundred as India captain.

Rohit Sharma, who is leading Team India in the absence of Virat Kohli, dedicated his third double century to his wife Ritika Sajdeh on the occasion of their second marriage anniversary today. That's until Rohit Sharma chose to show the Sri Lankans that the collapse in the first ODI was an exception, the rule (almost) being that when the going gets tough, he gets going with double hundreds.

He guided India to 392 for 4 in 50 overs.He displayed his dazzling form in the 44th over as he loafted Suranga Lakmal over the fence four times in four legal deliveries.

Saakashvili then led protesters towards parliament in Kiev , calling for President Petro Poroshenko to be removed from office. His overall support in Ukraine appears low - a weekend rally that called attracted only about 3,000 people.

The first such instance of penalising the fielding team occurred this September just days after the law came into effect when Marnus Labuschagne of Queensland was found guilty of teasing the Cricket Australia XI batsman Param Uppal. Rohit along with Shikhar Dhawan added 115 runs for the opening wicket.

As a result, the CA XI was awarded five extra runs. His first hundred took 115 balls while the second needed just 36 deliveries.

India's Shreyas Iyer acknowledges the cheers on completing his half century. Also, if we talk about his batting record today then we can say that Indian skipper smashed 13 fours and 12 sixes but he changed his gear even after the first 100. Courtesy Angelo Mathews' second hundred (both coming against India in a losing cause), they batted their full quota of overs to lose by 141 runs.

According to Bloomberg , the company has already signed up Warner Music Group and is in talks with Sony and Universal Music. YouTube has reached out to artists to seek their help in promoting the new service, one of the people said .

Rohit Sharma stepped into a realm few can attempt.

During his unbeaten knock of 208, Rohit Sharma also surpassed the record of the most number of sixes (41) in a year in ODI's for India. But everyone will agree that it was Rohit Sharma who was the star of the show.

It was the seventh time a batsman had scored 200 or more in ODIs with Rohit's 264 against the same opponents in Kolkata in 2014 being the highest individual score in the 50-over format.
