Rohit Sharma scored his third double century in ODIs during the second game of the 3 match series against Sri Lanka in Mohali.
Rohit has now become the second batsman to score a double ton in ODIs as a captain after Virender Sehwag.
He completed his third double ton in the final over of the first innings. As Rohit was inching closer to his double century, his wife Ritika Sajdeh seemed a bit restless in the stands hoping that he does not lose his wicket.
Rohit completed his century with a single and jumped in delight. He remained unbeaten for 208 runs from 153 balls with the help of 13 fours and 12 sixes.

Team India’s stand-in captain took his helmet off and gave a flying kiss to his wife sitting in the stands. Ritika got a little emotional after Rohit’s gesture from the ground as she tried to hold back the tears of joy.
