As Rohit Sharma sent the Sri Lankan bowlers on a leather hunt, thanks to his massive 264, in the Kolkata ODI on Thursday, it may well be remembered that the Indian ‘Hit-man’ had produced a similar knock against Australia, at Bangalore in 2013.

Though Thursday’s knock has helped Sharma become the first batsman in ODI cricket, to score two double hundreds, his original knock of 209 remains the stuff of dreams, and still has Indian cricket fans wallowing in nostalgia.

Here is a highlights video of that sensational knock against the Aussies, which helped cement himself as India’s modern day batting marvel!
