Hitman has the Highest individual score in ODI
On this day in 2014, Kolkata witnessed one of the best batting displays ever in the 50 over format when Hitman Rohit Sharma scored 264 which remains the Highest individual score in ODI until now. True, it was a individual score and not a team score which made many eyes stare down the scoreboard and it was a carnage for the fans in the stadium. He went on and on and never seemed to taper off after being dropped at 4 runs.
Rohit’s knock comprised of 33 fours and nine sixes which boosted the team total to a mammoth 404 on the scoreboard. His timing was impeccable on the day and his big hitting skills was out of ordinary. He already has three double hundreds to his name in the ODI format as of now with this knock being his second in the tally.
Outstanding hitting and great skills on display
Sri lanka being on the receiving end should have hold on to their chances and paid heavily for their sloppy work. Opening the innings, he started of slowly, but made up for it by scoring the first hundred runs in 100 balls and doubled the scoring rate to get to the second hundred in just 51 balls. Rohit’s potential was given the full acknowledgment through this innings and records were shattered to all ends.
The first ever double hundred was scored by the great man ‘Sachin Tendulkar’ and since then seven double hundreds have been scored in the format with Rohit alone having three to his name. Rohit’s top order promotion by his former Indian captain Dhoni has led to him being one of the finest openers in the format and his numbers have been brilliant after moving up the order.
It really was a crazy innings every player would ever dream of and Rohit had an unforgettable outing on the day. A proven match winner and surely the Indian vice captain has been one of the battings greats in the current era if not the best. Its going to be an uphill task if this record of 264 is to be broken, but this being a funny game, never rule out the possibility.
