It was his 30th ODI century, equalling Ricky Ponting’s record in the format. The Indian captain is only the fourth to hit the 30-century mark in ODIS, behind Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli and Ricky Ponting. The former Australian skipper scored 30 hundreds in 365 innings, while Rohit has take 131 less to get the milestone.

Exactly 10 years ago on this day on January 24, 2013, Rohit Sharma first time tried as a fulltime opener for India in ODIs. He had previously opened in South Africa, but MS Dhoni promoted the Mumbai star in 2013 to revive his career. The move turned out to be a masterstroke, with Rohit establishing himself as a white-ball legend in the ensuing decade.

While it is 18 ODIs for Rohit Sharma without scoring a hundred overall, the right-hand batter has gone 51 matches without scoring a century. The drought was even more concerning given Rohit hit 18 tons in ODIs from 2017 to 2019. That stretch included 5 in the 2019 World Cup. Now, the Indian captain has put all those doubts to rest with a stunning show in Indore.
