Top 3 scores for Rohit Sharma in T20Is
118 versus Sri Lanka
Rohit Sharma’s top score of 118 came in December 2017 against a travelling Sri Lankan side. In a high-scoring fixture in Indore, Rohit took only 43 balls to post his giant score, which featured 12 fours and 10 sixes. That innings helped India post a huge total that they eventually defended and won.
111* versus West Indies
This one came against the reigning T20 World Cup champions during their visit to India in November 2018. Rohit, batting in Lucknow’s newly-built stadium, blasted his century-plus score off just 61 deliveries. The knock included 8 fours and 7 maximums and resulted in another Indian victory.
106 versus South Africa
Third in the list is a magnificent hundred against the Proteas. Playing the tourists’ much-fancied attack in Dharamshala, Rohit Sharma took them apart for a scintillating 66-ball knock, featuring 12 fours and 5 sixes. Unfortunately for Rohit, though, even his fantastic knock was not good enough for India to post a win on the day.
