The recently concluded ODI series against Sri Lanka was a memorable one for Rohit Sharma, largely becuase he stepped in as India’s stand-in captain in Virat Kohli’s absence. Despite going down in the first ODI in Dharamsala, India won the series 2-1. In the second ODI the Indian skipper scored a record third double century (208*) against the same opposition in Mohali and India won the game by a mammoth 141 runs to level the series. In the final ODI in Visakhapatnam, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer took India over the line by 8 wickets.
