Rohit Sharma created history (again) today (December 22) becoming the first Indian to score two tons in T20 Internationals. As Sharma equalled South African David Miller’s record of fastest century in T20Is, smashing a 35-ball ton against Sri Lanka in the second T20I in Indore, fans went berserk. His magnificent feat stunned not only cricket stalwarts, as Indore witnessed an off-season winter shower – of fours and sixes. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma together forged the highest opening partnership for India eclipsing the previous best of 163 by Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul. This also set a record for India as its highest score of 260 in T20I.
With Rohit Sharma dominating Twitter trends in India apart from congratulatory messages, the micro-blogging site was flooded with jokes and memes.
From taking a jibe at the rival team to puntastically saluting Sharma, these reactions are as entertaining as Sharma’s knock. Many also gave credit to his wife Ritika Sajdeh for his achievement.
Looking at @ImRo45‘s scorecard.

During the match, Rahul was hitting the ball all around the park at that point of the match while Sharma’s onslaught started in the sixth over of the innings when he slammed 15 runs off Akila Dananjaya. And as the visiting team were seen struggling, fans couldn’t stop cheering.
