Earlier, Rohit Sharma scored a historic third double century as India continued to be ruthless against Sri Lanka in the second of the three-match series vs Sri Lanka in Mohali. Rohit Sharma hit 10 big sixes, followed by KL Rahul who hit 8 sixes and MS Dhoni chipped in with two maximums while Hardik Pandya hit a single six. Fresh from a thumping victory in the first match, India will look to continue their all-round performance to clinch the series against Sri Lanka in the second Twenty20 worldwide (T20I).

35 balls needed by Rohit to score his hundred, the joint-fewest in history.

The 165 run partnership between Rohit and Rahul is the highest partnership for India and the fourth highest overall in T20Is.

Once the 109-run second-wicket partnership between Upal Tharanga (47 off 29) was broken by leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (4/52), the Lankans innings fell apart.

Earlier after being put in to bat, skipper Rohit Sharma blasted the fastest Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) century off just 35 balls to power India to a huge total of 260/5. The stand-in captain's century came off just 35 balls, equalling the world record that was until Friday exclusively in the name of South Africa's David Miller.

However, Sri Lanka was all out just for 87 runs in 16 overs after its middle-order totally collapse. This was the fastest hundred by an Indian batsman in the format. Sri Lanka had scored 260 for six against Kenya at Johannesburg in September 2007.

Apart from Sharma, KL Rahul added 89 runs with his willow, hammering five boundaries and eight sixes.

Rohit Sharma slammed a terrific hundred during the 2nd T20I against Sri Lanka in Indore on Friday. Suresh Raina and K L Rahul are the two other Indian batsman who have scored a century in T-20 matches.
