On this day, last year Rohit Sharma became the 3rd batsmen to score a one day double hundred against Australia in Chinaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. He lit up the Diwali celebrations in India with his breathtaking innings. Coincidentally, he was also the third Indian batsmen to achieve the feat after Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag. He scored 209 of 158 balls which is the second highest individual score in ODI history. It was the day when Rohit Sharma finally made full use of his full talent. During the innings he made the record for most number of sixes in an innings (16) along with hitting 12 fours during the course of the innings. After reaching his hundred from 114 balls, Rohit shifted gears and went berserk, eventually reaching the 200-run mark in 156 balls.
