Virender Sehwag leads acclaim for Rohit Sharma after India opener's Indore blitz

Ex-girlfriend slams Rohit Sharma's emotional moment with wife Ritika

With the victory in Indore, India have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead over Sri Lanka in the three-match series.

The bowling department will, however, depend on wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal who caused plenty of trouble for the uninspired Sri Lankan batting in the first match. The first over (I bowled) was slow in the air, but the wicket was good to bat on and the ball was coming on nicely. With Angelo Mathews out with a hamstring injury yet again, the tourists were reduced to just nine wickets. The last thing Sri Lanka wanted was a dropped chance and Sadeera Samarawickrama, who had been drafted in for this game, dropped a straightforward catch of Rahul on 6 in the third over.

Rohit Sharma celebrates his hundred. Nuwan Pradeep's opening act was not one to remember as both openers picked a six apiece in his over to sent him for 17 runs.

How easy it is for India to beat Sri Lanka reflects in the fact that India's top opener Shikhar Dhawan went for Virat Kohli's wedding reception a day prior to the 2nd T20I. While the first four brought 26, the next four brought 61 runs.

Indian batsman Rohit Sharma on Friday equalled David Miller's fastest century record in the T20 worldwide format.

Rohit was mesmerising in his knock where he smashed 12 boundaries and 10 sixes to unsettle the opponent. But never with that mindset I go on to the field thinking that today I have to score a 100 or double hundred. Together they reached the highest opening stand for India, 165. Rahul made quick change of gears.

"In all formats, I try to do that".

Stand-in captain Rohit crafted a third one-day global double-hundred against Sri Lanka last week and produced another scintillating innings, India going on to equal second highest T20 worldwide total of 260-5 to surely set up a series win.
