Rohit Sharma thumps another match-winning ton

Rohit Sharma thwacked the Australian bowlers left, right and center in yet another valuable contribution to India’s win in the final match of the ODI series. The elegant right-handed batsman brought up his 29th century in the 50-over format with a flurry of monstrous hits that completely dismantled the opposition.

Having been given the task of chasing down a tricky target of 287 and with the absence of regular opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit conjured a masterful knock to steer his side’s chase effortlessly. The 32-year-old’s immaculate timing was a constant feature of blazing innings as he initially settled in and later upped the ante with belligerent striking.

In the course of his match-winning century, Rohit surpassed the 9,000-run landmark in ODI cricket becoming the third-fastest in the game to reach this milestone. He eventually fell for 119 after having smacked six maximums and eight boundaries in his 128-ball stay at the crease.
