Rohit Sharma smashed a whirlwind 43-ball 118 to lead India to a thumping series-clinching 88-run victory over Sri Lanka in Indore on Friday. Rohit’s hundred that came in only 35 balls, and featured 10 monstrous sixes, also saw him equal South African David Miller’s record of the fastest century in T20Is.
Away from the cricket field, Rohit’s swashbuckling knock allowed former Indian opener Virender Sehwag to display his wit again on Twitter. Sehwag, who has carved a niche for himself with his humourous posts on social media, praised Rohit’s high-voltage assault on Sri Lankan bowlers.
“RoHit Sharma ! Mazaak bana rakha hai yaar. It ain’t this easy yaar,” read Sehwag’s tweet.
Sehwag was followed by a number of other former cricketers including Pakistan’s Ramiz Raja who also took to Twitter to hail Rohit’s feat.
