  • GETTYIndia take on Sri Lanka in a T20 international today

Rohit scored 118 runs off only 43 balls and hit 12 fours and 10 massive sixes to dismantle Lankan bowling easily.

Among the batsmen who have hit the most number of sixes in T20I innings for India, Sharma tops the list with 10 maximums.

That Sharma loves to bat against Sri Lanka is no open secret - he has now scored two of his three world record ODI double tons against the islanders with the latest coming in the preceding 50-over series.

35 balls needed by Rohit to score his hundred, the joint-fewest in history. KL Rahul scored 89 off 49 balls while MS Dhoni contributed 28 runs off 21 balls. Kusal Perera's half-century kept Sri Lanka in the game for a while. Chahal, who picked up four wickets in the last match, is the highest wicket-taker in T20Is in 2017 and the focus will be on the leg spinner yet again.

As Tharanga (47 off 29, 3 fours, 2 sixes) got back to the dugout, the remaining Lankan side shattered miserably and lost 8 wickets (one absent hurt) for only 27 runs.

Rohit Sharma scored his second T20I century off just 35 balls as India piled on the misery on the Sri Lankan bowlers during the second T20 at the Holkar in Indore.

The bowlers were unable to find the right length on a pitch which gave no margins of error and each mistake was punished heavily by the Indian batsmen.

The in-form batsman had recently scored his third one day worldwide double ton against Sri Lanka in Mohali.

Rohit Sharma equalled the quickest Twenty20 worldwide century with a breathtaking blitz in Indore as India thrashed Sri Lanka by 88 runs to wrap up the series with a match to spare. Sharma smashed 12 fours and 10 sixes after India were put into bat. The Indian batsmen have made merry against a toothless attack.

Sri Lanka skipper Thisara Perera, on the other hand, said, "Looks a small boundary, so we want to chase".
