India opening batsman Rohit Sharma slammed his 22nd ODI century on Saturday against Australia in Sydney. The 31-year-old took only 110 balls to reach the landmark during the first ODI of the series. In his innings, the right-handed batsman struck 4 sixes and 7 fours to reach the landmark. With India still needing over 100 runs to win, Sharma did not make most of his celebrations and quickly took the crease to bat on again.
This is Sharma’s 7th ODI ton against Australia, but it is the fifth time he has scored a ton in Australia. He had previously also scored a double hundred against Aussies, back in 2013, in Bengaluru where he hammered 209 in 158 balls.
