In the 3,544th ODI, Rohit Sharma smashed the fourth double-hundred in the format's history. Incredibly, the last person to pass 200 was Rohit himself. As if that wasn't special enough, he managed the feat in a comeback game, after recovering from a finger injury. As Rohit powered along to 264 - the highest score in the game's history, 45 runs clear of Virender Sehwag's previous record - jaws dropped collectively among the Twitterati.

The pitch was flat and the opposition flatter.

But even Bishen Bedi wasn't going to grudge Rohit his moment in the sun.

That prediction came right, and then wrong as Rohit got out after passing 250.

Rohit's efforts left Sri Lanka chasing a whopping 405 to win. Perhaps they would need to break it down into smaller targets?
